Quality work and Discovery Time

In the last two weeks, in two different classes, we have had a focus on quality work. What a difference this has made! Students stayed at activities for longer and really took their work to a noticably higher level than in previous sessions.

Our digi kids for the day took photos of what they considered to be quality work.

At the end of the session students reflected on what made their work 'quality' - which aspects they were happy with and what they could have done differently.
