This week we will be at the IB Regional Conference at the Hague, Holland.
Educationalists Richard Matthews and Phil Burdass from one of our pilot schools has been asked to lead a workshop on how the Mondrian Wall is revolutionising their curriculum planning.
Richard and Phil are renowned for their engaging talks and infectious enthusiasm for all things IB and curriculum mapping – so we’re really looking forward to their workshop!
If you’re at Den Haag let us know and we can meet up and talk about how the Mondrian Wall could fit in with your school – email firstname.lastname@example.org

WORKSHOPS, FRIDAY, SESSION FOUR @ 15:30 – 16:30
The Mondrian Wall
Director of IB Programme, Havelock Academy, Grimsby, UK
Director Of Teaching and Learning, Havelock Academy, Grimsby, UK
“The written curriculum is available to the whole school community”…in a dynamic, multidimensional interactive, online world in which students, teachers and parents fully engage with learning. That is how we interpret standard C2.2 of the IB Standards and Practice document!
In our presentation we will explain how our approach to vertical and horizontal planning finally makes the “pedagogical leadership” of IB coordinators a reality. Don’t miss this session in which we will finally unveil our much-anticipated curriculum mapping system “The Mondrian Wall” which makes this all possible.

We attended the RSA Opening Minds Conference today and it was an excellent and thought provoking event. It was great to meet so many enthusiastic teachers and see so much enthusiasm for the Mondrian Wall.
Interesting student feedback
You can’t beat getting real feedback from students and teachers – I find you always learn someting valuable.
We speak to a range of students from different years asking questions without telling them too much about what we are building so as to avoid influencing their answers.
Today was an exciting day for the Mondrian Wall – we previewed the first prototype of the new system to two of our design consultants at Havelock Academy. Read full post
