Ideas for the As Pot - 200 ways to show what you know

Page history last edited by John Davitt 8 years, 5 months ago

Over 100 ways to turn learning into a right old performance -


  Moving the design of group learning activities  from afterthought to art form.

At the moment we expect far too much from individuals and far too little from groups.

Work is now underway on how we can allocate time to these challenges and how we can extend our repertoire of response to learning demonstrated beyond the page, the classroom and the timescale of a lesson.
