Global Education Publisher CMRubinWorld discusses how to create a curriculum that is relevant for the world today in a recent interview with global education thought leader David Perkins. David Perkins is the Carl H. Pforzheimer, Jr. Research Professor of Teaching and Learning at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and a founding member of the Harvard Project Zero, a research project investigating human symbolic capacities and their development. David's latest book, Future Wise: Educating Our Children for a Changing World, is a toolkit for helping educators and parents think through the all-important question: “What’s really worth learning?”

The world is getting increasingly complex; so how do we know what is worth teaching and learning? Since curriculum used in school today is outdated and with advent of modern technology, how do we ensure that schools create a curriculum to suite the needs of an evolving world?

Perkins is interested in how curriculums should be adapted in light of an ever-changing world. He believes that, by reimagining what children are taught, they can be led down the road to learning that results in a flourishing life.

In an interview with C. M. Rubin, Perkins shares his top 5 strategies to determine the curriculum needs for a dynamic world, in addition to providing tips for teachers to nurture the 4 C's in classrooms.
