a day on the farm growing innovative practice
Just a couple of kilometres off the F3 at the Toronto exit
Come and take your pick of our crop… G ive us some ideas in return, and a commitment to ‘pay it forward’ with anything you gain from someone else.
Look around you….. Choose a thing or a feature of interest..now, get curious about it. What can you find out: What is it? What’s it called? Where did the name come from? What drew your attention to it? Has it been where it is long? How do you know? Has it always been used the same way? If not, how else might it have been used? By whom? When? Why did this change? So many questions..think through some strategies to get the answers and to organise into some form of relevance to you, the learner.
Putting yourself out there Puppetry and avatars Using virtual characters and realities to trial ideas, emotions, responses and to demonstrate: Learning
Going bush A trip into the outdoor classroom to build on themes Near and far – connecting around the corner and around the world Adaptation – what do you need to do to sustain yourself? If you’re a tree..or maybe a lone zealot. Or How do we categorise and name Shapes and colour in nature Cultural awareness etc
A hive of sharing ideas – 4 small cells will be filled with ideas which stick – groups of up to six move on at the sound of the buzzer…..
Working together to follow the clues and find our way around
all day ideas starring in the Presenters sourced via Twitter deliver sessions every half hour sharing an idea, an approach to teaching or a tool which they’ve found useful – pop in for a session which interests you. Presenters will use the Connected Classroom at their school to direct link to the farm.
BYOI BRING YOUR OWN IDEAS
