Project based learning, thinking on learning and amazing Art projects

Profound learning in Year 7

Author: Pete Jones

I am primarily an Art teacher, but over the past 5 years have been co-developing an experienced-based learning programme in the school I work in called Pebble, (short for Project Based Learning). I read extensively on learning and education, and I intend to use this blog to record what is going on in my head as well as in the classroom. Hopefully I will be able to share resources and ideas with like-minded thinkers in the future. The Pebble course runs through the whole of Year 8 for 5 periods a week. I am desperate for our world wide education system to catch up with the way we live our lives. Transformation of what we learn in schools and how we learn in schools is desperately overdue. Pebble is a skills centered curriculum with the focus very much on what students need to be successful learners, giving them valuable, deep learning experiences to boot.

  1. Hey Pete,
    Really like the sequence of work shown above. The quality of work is superb. This sort of thing will definitely be preparing students for IGCSE / GCSE down the track. Great to see more art teachers sharing ideas… (I too write art education blog, but it is targeted at senior students: http://www.amiria.co.nz/artist/).
    Keep it up!

  2. Thanks Amiria. Glad you liked it. Have lots more to put on in time and will definitely check out your blog.

  3. Do you have a lesson plan for this
