Keynote Abstract

A Curriculum for Ownership, Ubiquity and Accountability

If there is anything that characterizes our world today, it is the continuous change. For this reason the educational paradigm in which we have to move is the process of change in itself, with the need to wonder frequently about the drivers of change and to develop willingness to embrace uncertainty. At the same time, the innovation model to be implemented must be sustainable in terms of professional development and implementation.

In this keynote we will think about the present drivers of change and educational trends that are leading us to rethink the curriculum in the classroom and some keys to develop a more personalized curriculum, one that responds to the needs, talents and interests of the students.
