Learning happens every day for everyone. Why? Because we move around. We don’t stay in the same place. We don’t stay in the same room. How much would you experience and learn if I told you to stay sat where you are all day? How about all week? All year?
To maximise my students learning I get them out of the classroom as much as possible and they can bring their tablets too. You see a tree, I see a way of measuring it using a mirror. You see an exam hall, I see a giant co-ordinate grid. You see a dog tied up outside, I see a loci problem! The world we live in is our ultimate tool, coupled with the technology we now have and I see no reason to keep my students cooped up in the classroom.
