Habit Of Mind: Thinking Flexibly
Our School (along with many) has been accredited as a Thinking School (TSSA). One of the things we are always looking for is how to integrate these Habits effectively into the curriculum. This task was using the Habit of Thinking Flexibly. The girls were asked to look at the beautiful flowers in our school from a different perspective. We then looked at the AMAZING art of one of my fav Instagram artists “Spielkkind”. This was a good iPad lesson on picking a nice light spot, with a simple background when photographing something with your iPad. It also taught the girls how to hold the iPad correctly and still, something so simple that usually goes so wrong. I’m sure teachers around the world are nodding agreement. Who knew that 7 year olds could overwrite the autofocus function EVERY SINGLE TIME.
Loads of fun and the idea of Thinking Flexibly comes through really strong.
