Digital Immersion Day 12 - Create!
Today we had another Manaiakalani day, but today we shared it with all the new teachers to Manaiakalani as well. I found that awesome, as I got to work with some of my colleagues from Tamaki Primary who I normally don't.
One of the things we discussed was the
LEARN CREATE SHARE
pedagogy that Manaiakalani holds, and in particular the CREATE part.
We shared with our table groups our thoughts on it, and a few people seemed struck by what I had to share. I told my new friends about how during some of my planning, I realised that the lessons I wanted to do fitted better when I changed the learn-create-share pedagogy around. Some lessons started with create, some started with sharing, and finished with learning, some went back and forth and around and around.
The point being, it is neither linear, nor cyclic.
You don't have to do one then the other, nor do you have go 1-2-3-1-2-3 either.
