Learning Beyond the Classroom Walls
I have been privileged to see a wide range of student and teacher interactions during the last three weeks. I have been so impressed with the work that has been submitted to teachers from students who are actively learning at home - even from our youngest learners.
In Early Learning we have children planting seeds after watching a video from the EL4 teachers, we have students sending in pictures of themselves following an Exercise Adventure workout featuring Mr Brandon, we have writing samples being peer-reviewed, video presentations being sent in, conference calls allowing students to present their work to each other and musical recitals which we as teachers have really enjoyed viewing.
In all these things, we see children learning at home, and are impressed by the commitment they have shown to continue to grow and develop. My hope is that this belief in their own ability to learn outside of school will continue to grow and become part of who they are as people so that we really do help nurture lifelong learners.
