Client: Oliver Williams, Curriculum for Life <>

Most young people (in wealthy countries) now have their education controlled via virtual learning environments. But preparation for the future will involve challenging the curriculum, not just accepting the status quo. Your task is to create an alternative mobile browser that school students can use to construct a customised view which collaboratively annotates, critiques, adjusts and (re)evaluates the front end facilities of their school’s VLE. Just like the school strikes for climate, it shouldn’t be necessary to wait for permission, when creating youth-led alternatives to established skills and qualifications. This can’t be just another social media platform - Facebook is clearly the wrong model!
