In this short documentary produced by the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) and aired over euronews two UNESCO-IBE education specialists share their insights about curriculum innovations. The view of Renato Opertti, Programme Specialist, is that of a curriculum focused on national aspirations, effectively connecting the content of what to teach with the learners’ needs, expectations and motivations. Massimo Amadio, Senior Programme Specialist, gives insights about the current challenges in a globalized world, and how UNESCO-IBE in its collaboration with countries takes into account world trends, international studies and comparative approaches while emphasizing the importance of the specific context.

Two other stories under this edition of “Learning World” complete the short documentary. The first story examines the arguments for and against a new curriculum for 5-14 year-olds being introduced this year in England. The third story shows how one school in Italy decided to introduce new pedagogic practices and technology.

“Learning World” is a series of weekly TV programs on education developed in the framework of a partnership between WISE and euronews.
