How do you think a curriculum like this would work in your school?

    At the Australian Science and Mathematics School www.asms.sa.edu.au a student can "Choose your own adventure". Called Co-design, the students can negotiate to design their own learning rather than undertake the interdisciplinary STEM curriculum provided by the school. And some of them do! Our job is to help them design it and find a way to get it accredited. The ASMS is also negotiating portfolio accreditation for University entrance (PATE). We spend time to help students to learn how to learn through out Learning Studies program in our quest to develop the self directed learner. Contact me if you want to know more. susan.hyde@asms.sa.edu.au or have a look at the website.
