One of our focuses in Goochland over the past year has been on student engagement. We know that if kids are turned onto the activities we can do in classes, learning can be fun and invite active participation. I took this to heart in our big assignment for this semester in EDLP 714.
The other thing I took to heart is the great working relationship our capstone team has developed as we work on our research project. Being able to work with these teams for this class was smart. We likewise decided to take on a book that related to making change, but it’s directly tied to our study on ubiquitous computing. Michael Fullan’s Stratosphere is a book we’d recommend, and we’re going to have a lot of fun preparing this weekend to present it in class this week.
We can’t wait!
