In 2017, the change in the curricular bases for third and fourth media in our country was approved. This year, it was the final approval by the National Education Council (CNED). This change of curriculum will occur progressively beginning the year 2020 with the third media and the year 2021 with the fourth rooms in all educational establishments in Chile.
This modification focuses on the relevant knowledge to develop in the current world, looking for the meeting points between the training needs required for the development of the person, for the citizenship, for the labor insertion and for the attainment of higher studies.
This modernization of the structure of study for the students of 3rd and 4th media, seeks to reorganize school time, favoring greater electivity. This change seeks a greater commitment and involvement of young people in their own training process, which is why they are given tools so that they can choose subjects according to their interests and move better towards higher education.
Broadly speaking, students will have fewer total subjects and a greater number of hours in each of the subjects of the differentiated training plan, which aims to promote the deepening of concepts and the best development of skills to live, think and work, such as citizenship, responsibility, collaboration, critical thinking and communication, among others.
The educational paradigm is in constant transformation and Chilean education must adapt to these changes and to the needs of the students within the classroom, that is why it is expected to address these needs with the new curricular bases, which will begin to be implemented Starting next year.
