Members of the public can gain an understanding of how “21st century learning” is being designed for public school students at a series of pop-up events starting today.

The Ministry of Education has scheduled three events - today, Wednesday and Friday - which will outline the work being done by the Learning First design teams.

A ministry spokeswoman said: “The Learning First Programme is a critical arm of education reform.

“It involves the restructuring of the curriculum, teaching, learning and professional development to ensure all public schools are places where Bermuda’s children are educated to lead personally and professionally, compete locally and contribute globally.

“The ministry is encouraging students, parents, teachers, principals, school administrators, other school and Department staff, community education advocates, business professionals, and anyone else concerned about improving the public school system, to register for any of the upcoming pop-up events.

“They will experience first-hand the new possibilities for learning in our public schools.”

Once registered, participants will be given more specific details on the location and time slot for the event.

Each pop-up will be about 90 minutes and feature live testing exercises, as well as “short, informative presentations” from the Learning First team.

The event and sign up details for the events are as follows:

Monday, March 15 at Vernon Temple Hall, Southampton. Sign up here.

Wednesday, March 17 at Botanical Gardens, Slat House, Paget. Sign up here.

Friday, March 19 at Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS), St George’s. Sign up here.

For health and safety reasons, registration for the events is mandatory.
