Where is the learning?


This video is my latest attempt at capturing what learning looks like.

I have chosen to use the example of our shopping trip to buy notebooks as a trainee teacher who went with another class found it very difficult to understand how there was any more learning going on than just a bit of maths involved when buying the notebook.

Of course, experienced/talented teachers (not always the same thing!) can see how rich in learning this experience is for the students and how much was happening on three levels of learning:

  • Conceptual understanding
  • Competencies and skills
  • Citizenship
