It wouldn’t be summer if I wasn’t doing something learning-related. This week I’m taking part in Project Zero Classroom, a week-long institute run out of Harvard University’s education school.
Those familiar with visible thinking routines will be aware of some of Project Zero’s work. What I like about these routines is how simple actions can be utilised by students to activate prior knowledge around concepts and deepen their understandings.
This the longest non-edtech professional learning I’ve taken part in since graduating. I am excited to pushing myself in a new directions, particularly in developing students thinking and creativity in the classroom.
I will be sharing the journey over the next week and no doubt be reflecting on the experience for many months to come.
