My interest in the idea of sharing pedagogical purposes comes directly with the contact I have had with the Project for Enhancing Effective Learning at Monash University in Australia. Now each of these teachers were very active in establishing learning agendas with their classes. The impact they were having was inspiring. Each classroom tool can have a purpose beyond delivering content, and this needs to be shared.
I suppose the purpose of this website is collate, crystalise and open dialogues about how to increase this within classrooms. As the quote from Carl Bereiter illustrates this classroom methodology can empower our students.

Metacognition of an Enquiry

Following on from my experience at Bristol. I have compiled all the recorded metacognitive thinking I did during this experience. In the hope of finding patterns in the thinking that one needs to do to be a successful enquirer, in order that I can provide tools and structures for my students. This is a work in progress. Any comments, analysis, ponderings are all gratefully recieved.
