Ok, so it’s only Monday but I know that the biggest event of the week has already occurred so best to do this week’s entry right now. This afternoon Nic and I spent the afternoon with around 120 students from Bristol Grammar School. We showed them the model and talked about our plans for learning activities. The students gave us loads of useful feedback, with inventive ideas and thoughtful comments that will certainly help us plan the rest of the project. We collected data in two ways: quantitative data was collected on the spot by using an electronic voting system to register the students’ responses to key questions throughout the session  and we are very lucky to be able to gather more detailed qualitative feedback because we were allowed to set them homework to design an activity in the model and to reflect on its usefulness. We would like to thank Mrs Nesbit and the other staff at BGS so much for inviting us and many, many thanks to all the students for their excellent ideas and encouraging response.
