Like-minded Extension Group
Posted 20 Jul 2017 in
A small group of 12, mixed age students embarked on an extension project during Term 2. This group together with Jan Coleman and Sarah Weaving are working on getting to know the understandings and applications of ‘Basic Project Management’.
The purpose of this group is ‘like-minded students’ to build on and further develop the skills of an inquiring, knowledgeable, thinking, principled, open minded, risk taking, reflective and balanced learner, both as individuals and as a group. To also learn about goal setting that leads to success through focus and direction and to develop and learn Basic Project Management skills.
During Term 2 the students engaged in learning 5 steps within Project Management (Motivation, Smart Goals, Accountability, Action Plan and Stick with it), and started putting the processes into action. Each student is making a 3D model displaying their understanding and skill development in this area. Term 3 should see the finished products of their 3D model and commencement of several partnered projects, demonstrating both the learning and application processes of ‘Basic Project Management’.
