“Entries were open to all schools in Australia that could demonstrate innovation and creativity that is driving the education industry forward. From teaching approaches to learning spaces and curriculum design, the Innovative Schools report showcases the institutions that are shaping the educational landscape of the future. The Educator’s seventh annual Innovative Schools list reveals these schools making the most profound and exciting impact in K-12 education.”
St Clare’s College (Waverley, NSW) constantly strives to be at the forefront of education when it comes to innovation in teaching and learning.
One innovation is enabling Stage 4 students to participate in four major integrated projects across their studies. These term-long projects are incorporated into the curriculum. Each project integrates two or more subjects and involves students working in teams to respond to relevant questions.
St Clare’s has integrated the Maths Pathway platform across Stages 4 and 5 for students who pursue personalised learning, allowing each student to move through the curriculum at their own pace. Implementing an AI-powered online learning platform, meanwhile, allowed the college to differentiate the work students complete outside the English and Science classes, across Stages 4 and 5.
