DISCOVERY LEARNING

Discovery Learning from Simon on Vimeo.

In Discovery Learning at Woolsthorpe where our Learning Process is most visible we use students, parents and teachers passions to hook learners in, generate curiosities, wonderings and questions. We then give learners ownership, space and time to Grow Knowledge, Dig Deeper, and Share their learning with the world. ‘Knowing what to do when learners don’t know what to do is a valued part of Discovery Learning’

‘Learners are motivated and engaged in their learning, developing independent Learner Traits – collaboration, initiative, tolerance, curiosity, creativity and determination – and take responsibility for their own process of learning. Discovery Learning encourages autonomous lifelong learners’

We use emerging technologies to inspire like, Spider Drones, Dash and Dot Bots, Sphero, 3D printing, Maker Spaces, Makey Makey and iPad apps.
We use iPads powerfully to capture, share and reflect learning through stories, images ad movies.

We use Twitter to connect, learn share and showcase.
