A New Curriculum for an Uncertain Future

10 pagesPublished: February 12, 2020


Uncertainty is a keyword whenever the future is described. As educators, we must contribute to promote a feeling of ease among our youth in an uncertain world. Our students must be able to discover problems and face those that are ill-defined, to build innovative solutions, to analyze situations using non- traditional viewpoints and to happily and effectively respond to changing constraints. This work presents the curricular redesign process of Mexico's national university virtual high school. The program is aimed at building the fundamental cultural basis that is expected from this educational level. We expect its contents, structure and learning activities to constitute a two-year training for students to feel comfortable and be productive while facing uncertain environments. The redesign process involved a diagnosis, the definition of its design constraints and general structure, and the development of an educational social network to socialize and improve the syllabi, as well as an intelligent tutoring system that will support teachers’ work.

Keyphrases: curriculum design, multiple-solution designers, uncertain futures, uncertainty
