I was so fortunate to be asked by the students of 3UU at Cameron Heights School in Kitchener, to sit on a panel to discuss with them the Future of Learning.
Here is a wonderful explanation, written by the class, of what their class is about:
“3UU is an extraordinary class, it is a Future Forums style class (a WRDSB initiative) that is worth two credits combining English, Sociology, Anthropology, and Psychology. This class allows us to express the way we learn and present our thoughts in our own personalized way of showing the knowledge we possess (through different mediums, such as videos, class discussions). We learn at different paces and take in information in various ways, therefore it’s easier for us to understand. In this environment, we function in a more self – directed style. Finally, we work more on developing skills that will help us in the future, rather than just focusing on what will help us pass this class.”
This is what they were hoping to achieve:
