Do you know of any primary schools that are doing interesting things pedagogically that build on digital practices that pupils have developed outside school?
We are trying to identify primary schools that are doing interesting things pedagogically, which recognise, value and build upon the digital practices that pupils have developed outside school.
This is proving challenging - which may be because of our timing (July/August/September not being great times to try to engage with schools!) and/or because schools who are doing this sort of stuff don't want to shout about it, and/or because few schools are doing it ...
Do you know of any schools that might fit the bill? Do you have ideas about how we might find such schools?
Help us by replying to this message with suggestions ...
I'd be happy to forward things to our Learnign Design mailing group or put on Yammer, if you could put something short together to go out that way? If all that attended the workshop last week, that might help?
Great. How about something like:
Do you work in a primary school that is building upon the digital practices that your pupils are developing outside school? Do you have a BYO policy? Do you have class blogs? Is digital technology enhancing your pedagogy? If so you might be interested in NP3 - a new project that is looking at the digital practices that young people develop outside school, and how these come to be recognised and valued inside school, leading to changes in pedagogy.
