Hi, I was invited to a conference on RPL recently and imagine my surprise when opening up the brochure!  I was down as a speaker.  I had not agreed to speak.  This is completely dishonest and I was…Continue

Re-establishment of the SETAs

Started this discussion. Last reply by Lynel Farrell Oct 13, 2015. 7 Replies

So all the SETAs have been re-established until 31 March 2018. At least this takes the uncertainty out of business for another two years.  But are there no consequences for non-performance at all? Continue

Engaging with learners using on-line tools In the flipped classroom

Posted on September 17, 2013 at 12:17 0 Comments

 We are using the Edmodo platform to liaise with learners between classes. Edmodo is a free, on-line application that allows a “teacher” (it’s a system designed for schools) to hook up with “students’ by posting messages, quizzes, surveys, marks, chats, etc. I also used it for providing the learners with a library of articles for each class intervention and for doing the formative assessments. It’s a really cool app (well I thinks so) and its free, which of course makes it all the more…

Confessions from a flipped classroom - day 5

Posted on August 30, 2013 at 15:11 8 Comments

The learners have all just left, full of excitement to be going home after a full week.  Many mentioned feeling mentally tired from needing to think and constantly justify their arguments and points of view – good evidence for me that they really had been applying themselves.

Confessions from a flipped classroom – day 4

Posted on August 29, 2013 at 15:29 3 Comments

Today has been interesting.  The group is really getting to grips with the methodology and are participating beautifully – but I have had moments where I have not been in control at all.  The group has taken over the learning experiences almost entirely.  As I am writing this blog, two groups are standing around the assessment tools they designed yesterday and offering really constructive critique and feedback.  The level of their application is really impressive.  I have not seen this level…

Experiences from the flipped classroom - day 3

Posted on August 28, 2013 at 15:00 6 Comments

Today didn’t start off that well.  I started by asking how they were finding the methodology and the project they were working on (they are designing assessment tools, guides and activities a la the “Design and Develop OB assessment tools unit standard).  They reported being frustrated with their knowledge level in comparison to the tasks at hand.

 

We debated whether they would be in a better position if I had taught the theory (from experience of having done just that I know…
