Laisser 20% du temps aux élèves pour des projets

Laisser 20% du temps aux élèves pour des projets
I love learning and am a big advocate of creativity. So when I read about Google's concept of '20% Time' I knew I had to find a way of sneaking it into the ethos of my classroom. In short, Google offers its engineers 20% of their timetable to work on their own projects – things that they are truly passionate about and not things necessarily in their job description. Fairly radical. And I couldn't help thinking, if it works for Google, could it work for education? Some teachers out there are using it (some don't give it a title) and therefore I planned to launch 20% time in my classroom at the start of the fifth term and, naturally, I wanted to make a big thing of it to the children. • It must be some type of learning and you must document it in your Homework Diary• This work, and all other work, must be of the highest standard• It may be continued at home• You have access to most resources as long as the use can be justified• You may work in groups of up to four people

The 20% Project (like Google) In My Class — Teaching & Learning I recently assigned a new project to my 11th grade English students: The 20% Project. Although it’s called a “project”, that term is merely for student understanding and lack of a better word. This project is based on the “20 percent time” Google employees have to work on something other than their job description. It has been well documented, and Google has exponentially grown as a company while giving this 20 percent time. How Google's Larry Page became a responsible entrepreneur Our planet's natural systems are under siege, whole communities are filing for bankruptcy, and the ​disparity between rich and poor has widened. These reasons, among others, are why we need entrepreneurs who challenge the world to rethink assumptions about how business “should” be done. These kinds of leaders can make sustainable the status quo. My​ book, The Responsible Entrepreneur, calls upon entrepreneurs and businesses to step up their game.

Google's 80/20 Principle Applies to Students The 80/20 principle that Google practices has trickled down to students in classrooms across North America. For at least 20 percent of their week, students work on projects that interest them. Whether educators call it 20 percent time or genius hour, the concept is the same, said Gallit Zvi, a teacher at Georges Vanier Elementary in British Columbia's Surrey School District 36. Project-Based Learning vs. Problem-Based Learning vs. X-BL At the Buck Institute for Education (BIE), we've been keeping a list of the many types of "_____- based learning" we've run across over the years: Case-based learning Challenge-based learning Community-based learning Design-based learning Game-based learning Inquiry-based learning Land-based learning Passion-based learning Place-based learning Problem-based learning Proficiency-based learning Service-based learning Studio-based learning Team-based learning Work-based learning . . . and our new fave . . .

Montessori, why not? I choose a Montes­sori school for my son al­most as an act of faith. At that time my knowl­edge of the method was null, be­sides hav­ing heard of small chairs and col­ored beads. But see­ing my son happy day af­ter day en­cour­aged me to study and deepen the Montes­sori’s ideas. What I had dis­cov­ered as­ton­ished me as a fa­ther and as a sci­en­tist. As a fa­ther, I found how chil­dren are re­ally re­spected and pre­pared for the fu­ture. As a sci­en­tist, I found solid sci­en­tific foun­da­tions for every­thing Maria Montes­sori pro­posed. 10 Reasons To Try 20% Time In The Classroom If you haven’t heard of 20% time in the classroom , the premise is simple: Give your students 20% of their class time to learn what they want.

By design, it is student-centered, student-driven, and gives space for teachers to meet the needs of students in a variety of ways. PBL can allow for effective differentiation in assessment as well as daily management and instruction. PBL experts will tell you this, but I often hear teachers ask for real examples, specifics to help them contextualize what it "looks like" in the classroom. We all need to try out specific ideas and strategies to get our brains working in a different context. Here are some specific differentiation strategies to use during a PBL project.
