Card sort: video explanation

Card sort: video explanation

This video explains how to do a card sort activity in class. I describe the activity and the learning outcomes in the video. Give pupils a variety of different answers to a question, such as ‘Why did America experience a boom in the 1920’s?’ Each answer is on a separate card. Pupils, alone, in pairs or groups must rank the answers based on a chosen criteria—most money, most important to society, needs money the most. Follow up activities can include: • Pupils writing reasons for their views and feeding back as a class. • Creating an essay or speech based on the ideas. • Visiting other pupils work and trying to persuade them to change their order, which can lead to discussion. • Joining another group and agreeing on a top 3. • Swapping groups and justifying their ideas in front of the class. • Ranking the ideas from the viewpoint of someone else in society such as a businessman, a parent, a tourist, someone unemployed. • A class debate based on the ideas.

Year 8 2018 Why Choose Geography Options Lesson

Year 8 2018 Why Choose Geography Options Lesson

This lesson has been tweaked to encompass the lack of a link with Geography and careers with the students in our school. The main activity involves a worksheet that shows students a diversity of different careers stemming from two teachers within my department (myself and another). It is hoped that this increases students choosing Geography for GCSE. The lesson is as follows: Settler: Why choose Geography video Homework: Students are given links to research roles within Geography and with what has been completed in Geography, Starter: What is included in OCR B GCSE Geography. Main: Hurricane experience as part of Global Hazards unit of work with Tweet activity. Main (2): Careers activity based on university graduates from two teachers in Geography with worksheet. Development: Trips completed in Geography. Plenary: Questions.

AI, gamified and flipped classroom in Finland

AI, gamified and flipped classroom in Finland

Finland’s new national curriculum emphasizes the use of technology and group work. Games can offer an interactive and exciting content to learners and promote co-operation in learning. Pedagogy, a digital game and videos supported the collaborative learning in the classroom and the whole school. Instead of using a book, pupils were playing a mathematics learning game. Join me in the conversation and help me create meaningful MOOC content. Tweet your thoughts and ideas @pirre74
