Mrs Blackhurst talks about Visible Thinking

The Spring edition of ISASA’s magazine, called Independent Education, features Mrs Blackhurst’s article on some Grade 1 and 2 rich task projects that are bringing 21st Century Education to life.

In her article, Mrs Blackhurst highlights the importance of 21st Century Education (being one that focuses on innovation, creativity, pupil-directed activities, critical thinking, collaboration, communication and diversity). She goes on to explain how some of the rich tasks developed by the Grade 1 and Grade 2 teachers, are harnessing all of these aspects of education. And the results have been nothing short of powerful. Pupils emerge from the exercise armed with new abilities (such as the ability to collaborate with peers in order to grow their thinking and generate ideas, or the ability to pursue a line of questioning in order to find clarity on something). And what became clear was how engaged, enthusiastic and confident the pupils were; they produced presentations, maps and booklets that impressed their peers, teachers and parents!
