After chatting with Neil Bramsen, we also look at learnings to be had whilst taking students on a bushwalk plus we revisit a grab from a past episode in which Sibylle Seidler from the Little Scientists where she discusses why your own enthusiasm & curiosity creates a foundation.
Top 4 learnings from this episode
- Whilst conducting your science lesson, have in mind a kitchen scale… is your lesson well balanced between having fun and delivering deeper meaning?
- Use the outdoors. This can be a fantastic circuit breaker for students plus the environment around you can provide a rich source of learning opportunities.
- Restricting the number of desks in the classroom forces you to creatively think of different methods of delivering a lesson.
- Invest in your colleagues. Provide as many opportunities as possible for professional development and the investment will pay itself back ten-fold.
