-> More about Børneuni & what they are looking to investigate. Briefly Børneuniversitetet (Child University) is a school covering from reception to 9th grade (6-16 years). Keywords about the school: Project-based, real life and outdoor learning. Cross-age learning. Keywords about what they would like to investigate when in Bedford: Differentiation and personalization, classroom management with big classes, student-led learning (students organizing their own schedule/work day if any such examples exists).
-> More about Utterslev & what they are looking to investigate. Briefly Utterslev Skole is an all-through school from 6-16 years with a science & nature specialism.
– Third group: Copenhagen School department is hosting the visit and will take you to experience different schools and projects in correspondence with the wishes indicated in your matching forms. When visiting Bedford, Johnny will be particularly interested in digital change-mangement (or digital change leadership), the mixing of top-down and bottom-up in the everyday life of schools, and in-service teacher training as the programme for 40 schools that the head in his B2 group was leading (not the college approach). Much of this can be accommodated through joining one of the other groups.
– Facilitator: Autens (third partner in the Comenius project), Lene Jensby Lange, school development consultant and Mads Bonne, innovation consultant (arrive Sunday)
The general picture: In general, visible learning, assessment for learning, goal-based learning etc are all very high on the Danish agenda at the moment and will be of huge interest to Danish schools to explore in other contexts. Also ‘the open school’ (collaborating with the local community, businesses, sports clubs etc), ICT, personalised learning, and student-lead learning would be highly interesting.
