What is an Intelligent School?
The Coalition of Intelligent Schools strives to make learning relevant to effectively preparing young people for today’s workplaces and those of the future. Today’s goals determine the actions of tomorrow. That’s why the goals of Intelligent Schools are future-oriented and focus on the holistic development of students (physical, mental, emotional and psychological) so that they are equipped with the knowledge, skills and capabilities to achieve personal success and be happy in this fast changing world. Intelligent Schools recognise the need to work effectively with others. One of the key objectives of Intelligent Schools is to work together to promote students’ participation in the learning process so that they are challenged and engaged in their learning. We aim to ensure that students acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to thrive in their future working lives. Intelligent Schools are developing an authentic curriculum that they believe in, that goes far beyond the minimum expectations of our education system. This curriculum. along with its associated approaches to learning, is highly relevant to the needs of the 21st century.
