PG Online produce exceptional resources, written and researched by experienced and outstanding teachers, to sound pedagogical principles. They seek to combat wasteful development and duplication of lesson resources across the UK. Their editable presentations, teaching guides, lesson plans, worksheets, homework and end of unit assessments free teachers up to teach, feed back and focus on the individual needs of their students. Schools using these resources have been shown to improve the grades of their students.
Lean Thinking Learning Space
Lean Thinking Learning Space (LTLS) is a flexible and innovative physical space which generates development of disciplinary and personal competences through experiential learning and challenge based learning. This innovative project proposes to create an environment of continuous production with all the real factors of a productive process where the students are immersed in the experience and make decisions to create an efficient transformation with zero waste. The results for this novel model competency-based education have been demonstrated a significant increase in the development of attitudes, skills and knowledge, as well as better perception of students in the teaching-learning process.
Applying an Instructor’s Point of View Filming (IPOV) for a Flipped Pre-Laboratory
The usual way in which laboratory instructional videos are filmed takes the third person view. However, such videos are not as realistic and sensorial. A more personal and effective way of educating students on laboratory procedures has been pioneered – the Instructor’s Point of View (IPOV) technique. To capture the attention of technology-savvy students in the 21st century, educators have to be innovative and reinvent new ways to teach procedures in conducting chemistry experiments. This 3-year study made use of GoPro/Google Glass to film realistic IPOV videos (Live and pre-lab) from the demonstrator’s point of view.
