Most of us have fond memories of a fantastic experience we had with our teacher and fellow classmates.
Maybe it was creating soundtracks for dramas. Or perhaps making a board game to show off your knowledge of biomes. For many of us, it was just having the choice to do something that we enjoyed.
It probably wasn’t a memorable worksheet.
A learning experience happens when the teacher designs the activity for the students. It doesn’t come from a standard lesson plan.
So what does it mean to create a learning experience for our students? And how can we use our fondest school memories to help us design experiences for our students that they won’t want to miss?
As always the #Ditchbook community has you covered. In a recent Twitter chat moderated by David Platt educators shared 25 ways to ditch those lesson plans and start creating experiences for your class!
Check them out in the summary of this week’s chat below.
