ADE: Creativity And Technology

Katie and Nathan from Flitch Green

Creativity and Technology at the heart of learning. Everyone is a learner. The whole community is involved and collaboration is the key. When the pupils heard Katie and Nathan were coming to speak to the ADE Institute, they decided to create a movie to show us what learning in the school is like.

They also showed us some of the creative responses they've had to open ended homework. They also have a daily challenge time where they can choose a challenge to tackle, who they will work with, and how often they try each challenge. They don't want children to be constrained by age or anything else. An example of a whole school task was to make a film where questions about fractions are answered through the medium of dance (I think!). Example was children learning about fractions by counting the beats in their song.
