These are the learning experiences of children ages 7-8 years old as we explored and guided our wonders connecting our findings to the United Nations' Global Goals.
Behind each photo there is a story we tell.
Documenting Students Documenting Their Learning Process
This is a video that documents students documenting their own learning. We are working on the unit of inquiry: How the World Works, and how materials change to suit a given purpose. This way of documentation follows the SAMR model and amplifies student voice in the process of self-learning in a collective space.
Measuring with iPads
Children use the measurement app on their iPads to measure big structures in the playground. The use of Augmented Reality enhanced the way we see perspective in bigger things. Through this experiential learning adventure, AR was an additional tool after we explored using non-standard units, moving to a ruler, to a meter stick, and now using a device that gives a different learning experience. Notice how we were able to tackle not just fine-motor skill but especially, critical thinking skills in how to get the iPad to grasp the object and moving the points to see the length. The environment is a third teacher, and the technology a tool with a purpose.
