    As a seperate matter I would like to pose my “wicked problem” to the SRC executive. That being “How do you create a future focussed curriculum in the current model of schooling?”

    I am working with the Footscray Learning Precinct on this very problem and I have quite a simple answer which is, ask young people, listen to young people and have then co-design and construct curriculum that responds to the big issues of our time (environmental destruction, inequity, AI, big data to name a few). But I’m looking for different perspectives as well.

    I would value the thoughts and opinions of your members on how you would go about truly embedding student voice in curriculum decisions and whether any of your members have experience in doing this and could offer insights</span>

    Future focused curriculum currently i believe is unable to be set in stone, as cheesy as it sounds but the future is never definite. Creating a future focused curriculum would have to be an ever evolving one, almost helping students to adapt to new experiences each time and new political decisions that have been made.

    Such as managing MyHealthRecord or focusing on things that are happening in the real world.

    I guess perhaps creating one around what you say of things that the future will most likely hold in terms of environmental destruction, inequity and big data is describing the problems that we face in those issues and brainstorming realistic solutions to scenarios. What is possible if an AI takes your job, or how can we prevent environmental destruction as each case will be different not 2+2=4 every time.

    Hopefully that helps in the development if it makes sense!
