At a recently concluded seminar for teachers, I encountered a new term called the Curriculum Corner. A bit of search on internet yielded interesting results, something which I would like to share with everyone.
Curriculum Corner is a platform for creative people to come together and share their ideas and techniques of delivering academic content in novel ways. This helps the teaching community, in particular, to collaborate and integrate the best ideas, and weave them in their own curriculum to make it more effective. Curriculum Corner acts as a common repository of resources related to different subjects for a wide range of audience. As a teacher, one could find unconventional ways to deliver the content and make it more engaging for the students. Students can also access these corners and use it for a better understanding of the subject-matter.
I discovered these corners on many popular social media platforms like Face book and Pinterest etc. A Curriculum Corner can be setup in multiple ways, like in a school, within a community or on web for larger access. For example, we can also create such platforms in a physical form in a school by compiling creative ideas of teachers, students and parents and make it available for everyone to use it as per their needs.
In a constantly evolving world, the ultimate aim of a teacher is to teach their students in the most effective ways and help them realise their own potential. Hence, there is a need to be creative and innovative in their methods of delivering the curriculum, within the existing resources. Curriculum Corner may end this quest for creativity and result in a more enriching teaching and learning experience.
