I had several great people to discuss my plans with, including both in-school support and some Tweeps (thanks especially to
- Next time: a mix of individual, pair & group projects is required to balance interests & learning needs.
- Next time: I'm doing an Adventure Learning project too, maybe I'll even include some students with higher learning needs.
A handful of kids have moved swiftly to beginning another Adventure Learning project. Clearly they have become motivated learners, or at least found a suitable outlet for their motivations. The computer time before school has been graduated from games and blogging, to blogging and adventure learning. These two developments are both positive but I now need to integrate this energy across our timetable.
- Next term: I need to provide opportunities for children to pursue learning in their own interests in more curriculum areas (I guess I'm looking at personalising learning more successfully).
- Next term: Can I continue this in other areas of curriculum?
I've loved the questioning, discussion and engagement that Adventure Learning has introduced to my classroom. I won't give it an A+ on its first attempt but do believe that it has demonstrated enough positives to warrant another attempt next term.
Now I just have to work out what my project will be for next term...
