    Dear Alex,
    What an immense learning experience for grade 4 students, making a picture book for a target audience, and getting feedback from them. It’s impressive to see how your students have used different apps […]

  • Hi Kim,
    I am fascinated by your idea of the final project i.e. to start coding in the whole of elementary school and also training the teachers to link it with their curriculum. With coding, students are not just […]

  • In May, when I was planning for course 5, I had no idea that I will have to re-plan everything from scratch. My family had to move back to Pakistan and I had a whole new role at a new school in Islamabad. In […]

    Hi Jennifer,
    I really like your idea of building technology routine in the classroom similar to other classroom routines. Most of the students from this generation probably have never seen the world without technology and therefore learning technology comes natural for them. Likewise, students at an elementary level are able to acquire…[Read more]

    It seems like yesterday that I was thinking for ideas for course 1 final project and now here I am submitting my plan for course 5. My mind was filled with endless po […]

    • Hi Sitwat,
      I’ve been reading your post for the last week. I was wondering what sort of tools you would use to collaborate between another teacher. Would this school or teacher be in the same similar time zone? What will you use to introduce or grab the student’s attention for this inquiry unit? I think its great that this is more of a PBL unit. I think PBL units create more of an ownership to the student’s own learning. They can take it as far as they wish and we are there to facilitate them. I think in the future this unit will help your students be better prepared to be self starters and curious problem solvers to the world around them. Good Luck. Pim

    • Hi Sitwat,
      I totally agree with you. Especially the “open the classroom” and “sharing of learning” makes a huge difference and allows us to create meaningful and authentic learning experiences for the students. That motivates them and lets them open their eyes beyond the classroom.

      Btw. … Heard of the challenge? Day 3 is also to introduce myself to a Coetailer. Here you are: I did the course 13/14 and I was amazed. Such a great experience. How is for you so far? Now I’m working as an EdTech Coach in Singapore and I love my job. Unfortunately I don’t find time anymore to blog which is a pity. Having a 2 year old makes it difficult. I have not given up yet though .. 😉

    Hi Sarah,
    I really enjoyed reading your blog. Your PYP students have done amazing projects. PBL or Challenge based learning not only engage the students but students choose their own path in the process of learning. PBL can be linked to highest level in Blooms taxonomy. I found this below mentioned post really amazing as to how they have linked…[Read more]

    Hi Debra,
    I think we are not far from where it will be part of mainstream education. More and more apps are being released everyday and price of VR glasses is pretty affordable now. You can pick any discipline, be it chemistry, physics, history or language class, you will find apps related to it.

    Thanks for the comment and sharing breathtaking views in 360º. Recently, I attended another session on google expedition where a teacher can choose any expedition, add his class and can monitor students too. You can find more information here https://edu.google.com/expeditions/

    Ever wondered how classrooms are going to transform in next 5-10 years?
    Will even there be any classroom or not?
    Does the role of teacher will change or teacher be replaced wi […]

    • Hi Sitwat,
      I was pondering Google Cardboard and will definitely try VR and AR this year. However, I believe it is only a “pocket” of overall classrooms and educators that are using this technology. What I wonder is how long before such devices and applications become mainstream? What are your thoughts?

    Hi Kim,
    The idea of letting students design their own game links well to all the 21st century skills. Recently our school participated in Global Codeathon and it was great to see every student busy designing their own game. It was amazing to see kids as young as of grade 2 not just gamers but designers of games.
    Minecraft has also started code…[Read more]
