Ideas for 21st Century Global Curriculum

In his description of what a global curriculum might look like, Edutopia blogger Terry Heick presents a picture of education driven by inquiry.  The three "small, manageable ideas" that he suggests as a starting point for the globalization of curriculum add up to a classroom where students of all interests and abilities can exercise their natural curiosity within "authentic" learning environments.  Specifically, Heick suggests that educators adapt to the learners, rethink learning spaces, and leverage the role of play.  Even beyond the scope of these suggestions for the goal of globalizing education, Heick's ideas -- if put into action -- would create an environment that encourages and rewards inquiry.  STEM subjects are uniquely suited to this kind of approach, and programs like science fairs put students firmly in control of their learning.
