5 Bits of Advice About: Planning

  1. Always accept support; don’t reinvent the wheel.
  2. Prior learning: finding out what the students know makes planning easier and much more focussed.
  3. Guide everything: avoiding too much teacher talk doesn’t mean endless off-topic questions are good; narrow the direction and broaden the skills.
  4. Give them options. Students are more inclined to complete tasks when they have chosen the layout, give them a few options to bring out the best in them.
  5. Variety is the key to continued enjoyment. Not all topics are thrilling, but tasks can be, so be creative in how students obtain and apply information and skills.
