The Honda 'School of Dreams' Group
A group attended a ‘School of Dreams’ workshop in July 2012, which helped develop our ideas about learning styles and ways of learning. We now want to pass this information to the rest of the school. At the workshop, we did many activities, from juggling to skygliding (metaphorically, of course!) using different techniques to help us absorb information effectively. We specifically liked the “apache relay”, which involves members of different teams competing small tasks and could be anything from tying a shoelace to drawing pictures. This can be used in many subject areas using different skills. We also had to present an “elevator pitch” which focussed on making what you want to say short and concise for impact. The third idea from the workshop is “reflection” which we did after each activity. This involves thinking about how we did the tasks, what we could do better and which were easy, difficult or interesting.
