Mantle of the Expert - Let the students be the teachers Part 2
With some tasks I have set the children I give a purpose for their work by adding it is something I want to show younger children in the school to help them with their learning or for people visiting the school, prospective parents, special visitors for example. This always means the children approach the work with a more mature attitude. It is giving the task a sense of worth and turning the children into teachers. Using the iPads give children the perfect opportunity to showcase this through some excellent speaking and listening opportunities.
