The Blended Learning Experience: Part 1 4 March 2020
The school closure has not slowed down learning at Aoba. Instead leaning on the strength of our blended learning tools and culture our students and teachers have picked up right where they left off.
Here are a some highlights of lessons that have taken place over the past 2 days.
Grade 7 Math
- A living room
- A kitchen
- 2 bedrooms
- 2 bathrooms
- A garage
- At least one room is trapezium shaped and one room a parallelogram ( they are investigating the formula for finding area of a parallelogram and Trapezium)
Grade 7 Drama
“Today during Drama class we started like any lesson, checking in! But instead of sitting in a circle sharing our feelings we joined a google meet and shared our feelings via the chat. After this, students warmed up in pairs over google hangouts and then completed a research task exploring what monologues are. Students worked in their teams to analyze examples of monologues. Students then selected a monologue, rehearsed it and made a video recording of their performance. At the end of the lesson students successfully uploaded their work to Managebac and joined the google meet to check out! The Grade 7’s are demonstrating impressive self management skills and teamwork as they work and support each other during online lessons.”
