Class debate.

Class debate.

This video explains one way to hold a class debate, going through the structure of the lesson step by step. The video shows how a debate lesson can move from pair work to a whole class debate, explaining the different stages and learning outcomes in detail I have used this debate structure for years 7-13, but it would also work for primary school students. If you would like a copy of the supporting handout please contact me.

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
