The best laid plans of a bracing walk through the wilds of Scotland with John were overthrown by the weather, and so we spent a great few hours in the cosy surrounds of the elegant lounge room at the Bridge of Orchy Hotel (in the west central Highlands of Argyll).
In The World According to Three Educators by a Fire, this is what we came up with:
Know your goals as you set out.
Take a steady approach, but always with your goals in mind.
Be prepared for serendipitous events, embrace them, use them and learn from them.
Allow students to lead their learning – support, encourage and celebrate learning as it happens.
Need to backward plan at times to enable a more open and exploratory type of learning to take place.
