I felt extra proud of my students this week. We are continuing our work on creating our own political parties and several of my students are already calling the established parties and interviewing them about the political issues they have chosen. Some of my students have also gone to see campaign workers to ask questions. I applaud their enthusiasm, drive and creativity. I think more than anything I can teach them, these interactions with the world will help them become the people they were meant to be. I think it’s terribly important that teaching is not limited to the four walls of a classroom.
In the fifth week of the Future Classroom Scenarios-course they have introduced the digital planning tool Learning Designer, which allows teachers to plan their lessons and projects in a more effective way when it comes to variation and creativity. I will write more about this under the headline Digital tools and creativity.
