Welcome to the International Curriculum Specialist Series where Fieldwork Education interviews both experts and educators on how best to improve our learning.
In our fourth episode, Lee Hendricks, Fieldwork Education's International Curriculum Manager for the Middle Years, interviews teacher and IMYC coordinator Maria Koutsoupaki from Futuraskolan International School in Stockholm, Sweden. Maria shares what some of her best practices are in which to plan and implement a Knowledge Harvest, or what some may call a preassessment, within a school. Maria provides practical strategies on how to structure and incorporate technology with the Knowledge Harvest. She also addresses common errors that teachers typically make in the Process to Facilitate Learning and highlights the importance of revisiting the Knowledge Harvest throughout the unit to check for new learning and understanding.
