Words about learning: themes

This week has seen a series of five ‘words about learning‘: you may have noticed a theme. First we explored sculpture, then weathering. We moved onto a different type of carving with ‘journeymen‘, then talked about metal. They’ve all been around a theme, each drawing the story forwards, each combining narrative and reflection.

Themes are useful: ways of collecting associated but possibly divergent stories together. We use themes in learning a lot, but usually call them curricula or programmes, which is a fancy name for a theme. Themes can help us develop magnetic learning.

The blog is in New York this week on a combination of workshops and holiday, so we’re defaulting to our holiday game of sharing short and reflective ‘words about learning’.
