Integrated Learning Planning Model
As Jamie McKenzie demonstrated to our staff on Friday 21st September, educational technology plays a role in good quality 21st century learning. However it is not alone.

Other equally if not more valuable "ingredients" play a vital role in developing a purposeful unit of project-based learning.

We are currently trialling a school-based planning model that supports teachers in planning a unit of work. It incorporates technology as well as other vital strategies such as authentic learning, reading comprehension strategies, high-order thinking, assessment, questioning and the physical environment. Each section requires good knowledge, teacher expertise and skill to develop well.

As a critical friend of Sacred Heart pointed out, the sections come under three main headings:
Physical, Virtual and Pedagogical Environments. - Thanks Louise!
