Bold Moves

Find tools, resources and support to implement bold changes around the future of schooling.

‘Moving boldly is not moving impulsively, or for the sake of change. Moving boldly involves breaking barriers that need breaking.’ – Dr Heidi Hayes Jacobs and Dr Marie Hubley Alcock, Bold Moves for Schools

Bold Moves enables teachers and leaders to navigate where to take curriculum and learning for modern learners. It challenges us to resist what has always been done or what we’re used to.

This program is a collaboration between two global educators, Dr Heidi Hayes Jacobs and Marie Hubley Alcock. They wrote a book together, ‘Bold Moves For Schools’, which forms the basis of our year-long program at ISV.

Through the program, we help schools envision the change that is coming through tools and structures to support change and empower teachers to make bold commitments.

Bold Moves aims to connect a future-focused, student-centred education to the best of what we already do. It encourages participants to ask important questions about the future of schools, such as:

  • How can we prepare our learners for the future?
  • How can we create responsive environments for contemporary learners?
  • What is in the best interests of our students and the way they live?
  • How can we start to make changes to the future of schooling?

Moving boldly is not moving impulsively, or for the sake of change. It’s taking sensible and necessary steps to improve the quality of lives for our learners. Independent schools, with their ability to flex and choose, are perfectly poised to move boldly.
