It is great that the new techniques of teaching that are being utilised and developed are being shared. On Wednesday 3rd September. Ron and Anne Matheson led a workshop: “Active learning”. It was a great success with 20 teachers involved in the day. Teachers were able to see that teaching could take different forms and that having students actively engaged bodes well for students gaining understanding.
This is likely to be the first of many and a good day was had by all. Subjects included English, discount Science, decease Maths, Art, Social Studies, Physical Education. Each subject was presented differently giving a variety of methods that can be utilised.
