One Thumb Up, One Thumb Down
Posted by Greg Wilson on 2009/11/24
We’re coming up on the end of term, so it’s time to start thinking about what went right and what went wrong. I’ve asked the students and mentors to post their ideas here, but to lead off:
Thumbs up: our broad geographic range. I was really pleased to have schools from three oceans (four if you count the Great Lakes) take part.
Thumbs down: most projects weren’t ready to roll on day one. Next term, each project should try to have a bag full of small, specific tasks for students to tackle during the first few weeks so that no time is lost.
