How can teachers ensure that students connect with all their learning?
Creativity is connecting new dots in new ways.– Sam Horn
Our cast-iron approach to teaching topics will enable students to connect their learning and their wider world.
Once this educator has connected with the hearts and minds of his own students, the time is right for him to begin making connections with his student’s learning. CASTOR’s cast-iron approach can be applied to any framework or any curriculum, anywhere in the world. Great teachers make connections meaningful, and these resources will help teachers to create memorable learning journeys that can also be shared with others.
Students will embark upon a Castor learning journey, moving towards completing a 360° orbiting challenge. Science, computing, history, geography, design and technology, art and information technology are all incorporated, but other specialist teachers can also adopt this effective and proven approach. During the planning phase, learners and teachers work together to shape the intended learning journey.
Planet Castor is passionate about lifelong learning, and, by making effective use of our other Planet systems, the journeys that teachers create will certainly enthuse and empower their students, not just now but for the foreseeable future. Our Exemplar Toolkit contains a UK national award winning Castor learning journey that has been cast out to students throughout the world. It demonstrates how our extensive set of resources can help both teachers and learners in their quest towards completing their own Castor learning journey.
