One of the reasons I went self-employed was to avoid being forced to do things in particular ways to suit somebody else's agenda. However, it was bound to happen that at some point a school that I did PPA in would get the call, and so it has transpired this week. I've been doing some digital mapping with year 6 at Chorlton Park with a view to creating a Google Map mashed up with images from Flickr and hyperlinks to popular tourist destinations some of which were suggested by my Twitter lesson last week. I've created a Google Doc with my lesson plan on from which you should be able to deduce what the prior learning was and where we're going next. As a plenary, I put up a blog post on the Y6 class blog and invited comments as to where we might take the project in future weeks. I'm pleased to say that my Twitter friends have risen to the challenge and given us much food for thought. More comments welcome on the Y6 blog.
