With our country in Level 4 lockdown, in response to the Covid-19 epidemic, teachers are learning how to effectively adapt their pedagogy to ensure that their students are learning from home. For those of us in Manaiakalani schools, we are exploring new ways to have students participate in our Learn, Create, Share pedagogy from home. In addition, our Manaiakalani Class on Air team was challenged to begin thinking outside of the box when designing our lessons during this period of distance learning.
This past week, our country celebrated Anzac Day as we do each year. However, this year, due to the lockdown things were a tad bit different across the country. As a result, the lesson that I prepared for my students was also a tad bit different.
Check out my Manaiakalani Class on Air episode where students were encouraged to come up with a way to make their own poppy or poppy display around their house. After creating their poppy, students were tasked with writing step by step instructions and presenting those instructions in a creative manner on their blogs.
