‘Vesterbro New School’ worked for 5 days with an educational Scenario with lessons using Build A World EDU. The students were set in an environment of a large city, and had to work together in their teams to solve the tasks. The assignment topics ranged from power production using sustainable energy and conventional energy, to infrastructure of a large city and architectural design and construction.
Everyday started with the teacher giving an introduction to the assignment and teaching about the subject. Each day finished with a ‘show and tell’ meeting where the students shared their findings, learnings and achievements.
The students worked with deep concentration for many hours, they were very positive about the new way of learning and even forgot to take breaks.
(The course was facilitated by UCC at the 21st Century Learning Skills Lab)
