1) Where are we now?
2) How did we get here?
3) Where are we going?
These three essential questions have been primary approach within Olympia classrooms in order to emerge knowledge based curriculum with real-time happenings in the world. As Mr. Chris McDonald - Head of Schools emphasized in multiple educational discussions, this approach should be followed by extended learning labs where skills are put to use in a real-world, flexible classroom settings, effective use of faculty planning time and exposure to social media and on-line publishing platform; all of which are elements of interdisciplinary studies and blended learning.
In his upcoming keynote at the 5th International conference on Vietnamese studies with focus on Sustainable Development in the Context of Global Change, Chris will be discussing the ways in which blended learning and interdisciplinary studies help to create innovation in students and schools, taking The Olympia Schools as primary case study.
The conference will be held at National Convention Centre during 15th-16th December 2016 with detailed programme updated as follows: http://icvs2016.vnu.edu.vn/home/en/
