Great session today with a great group of teachers from the Trust exploring new possibilities for raising the level of challenge in classrooms. Three possible starting points:
- Curricular – change the content of lessons in ways that deepen the learning
- Pedagogical – change the approach to learning so that children have to think about things in different ways
- Structural – change the way we organise the classroom so that children can engage with their learning in different ways
Many thanks to Natalie Woodward from Worsbrough Common for her fabulous contribution around the use of iTunes U and inspiring children to challenge themselves and one another.
