yep. isto sou eu a usar o scratch com os alunos: "não sei, não faço ideia, mas e que tal irmos descobrir como é?"

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, October 14, 2014 6:58 PM

Teaching could be about saying "I don't know" and waiting, in the uncomfortable silence that follows, for students to begin their exploring with you. As teachers and students become more comfortable with that silence, students accept responsibility for their learning.

Paul leslie large's curator insight, October 14, 2014 11:51 PM

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, October 15, 2014 1:36 PM

The first point is critical: take off your expert hat. I worked for School managers who cast themselves as experts failing to grasp the pace of change defies that thinking. Digital technologies and their impacts on School, learning, and teaching are continuing the change.
