Timeline Learning Circles Children’s Rights 2016

phase 1

 Phase 1. February 08 – February 28 – 2016: Introduction

Before we start to learn and work together, it is nice to know each other. In the wiki there is a school page for each group to introduce themselves. Everyone can read the wiki, yet to edit you need a login. Once you have access to the wiki, you can start editing your own introduction page. On this page you can share something about your school, classroom, fellow students and your teacher. A nice group picture or pictures of students, drawings or a video makes your page alive

phase 2

Phase 2:  February 29 – April 03 – 2016: Challenge 1

On Monday morning February 29th you can find the first challenge in the Wiki. Five weeks time to add your contributions on the school challenge page. Please try to be as creative as possible with texts, videos, photos or Social Media! You can also add an extra effect by using the Cool Tools Wiki.
In the last three weeks of this Phase there is enough time for feedback on each other’s contributions. All participating groups take some time for Questions & Answers. We are also organizing one or two Skype meetings for each group.

 phase 3

Phase 3:   April 04 – May 08 – 2016: Challenge 2

On Monday morning April 4th, we will start the second challenge. Five weeks time to work on the group assignments of your choice. We invite you to closely look at the contributions of the other students in your Circle. Also discuss in your group what the similarities and differences in the different groups are.

From April 18 – May 27 – 2016: students are working individually on this Challenge in a peerScholar assignment.

Based on the first two weeks of this Challenge, students will write a letter to UNICEF in peerScholar and give feedback on the work of three peers. In an amazing process of peer learning students can  reflect on their own work and with constructive feedback from three of their classmates in the Learning Circle, each student can improve their own work. That’s the way to learn together, with constructive feedback and by sharing critical and creative thoughts about Children’s Rights.

During this period, all schools are closed 1-2 weeks for holidays; take your time for a good planning!

phase 4

Phase 4: May 09 – May 27 – 2016: Completion and Evaluation

On Monday morning May 9th the final Phase starts. Until Friday May 27th there’s time to work on your Completion and Evaluation. We are all curious about your presentation of ‘eye-openers’, tips and tops and how you experienced working together in this ‘world wide classroom’.

Also in these final weeks you’ll give each other feedback. We will facilitate time and place for Questions & Answers and Skype meeting.

Evaluation: With your feedback we can improve our Learning Circles and make the next even more successful.
