Welcome to the International Curriculum Specialist Series where Fieldwork Education interviews both experts and educators on how best to improve our learning.
In our first episode, Lee Hendricks, Fieldwork Education's International Curriculum Manager for the Middle Years, interviews neurologist and educator Dr Judy Willis about ways to get students engaged in their learning. We find out how boredom affects the brain and behaviour in the classroom, why teachers should pay more attention to the neuroscience of learning, and how gamification works for students. Judy shares her decades worth of research and insight, so you might want to take notes on what’s to come in this episode and also, the episodes that follow in our new International Curriculum Specialist Series.
The International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC) has been developed by Fieldwork Education. Fieldwork Education are the providers of the international curriculums IEYC, IPC, and IMYC and support accreditation through the International Curriculum Association (ICA).
