If you’re looking for inspiration for a challenge-based learning project, check out this brilliant new iBook from Apple Regional Training Centre WOW Zone, ‘Exploring children’s heritage using photography’. Detailing a photography project they ran in the summer at Quarry Bank Mill, the iBook has been picked up as part of Apple’s One Best Thing series on the iBook Store.
In the iBook, authors and Apple Distinguished Educators Lisa Whittaker and Louise Zwanepoel “document the journey of a group of 9-11 year olds as they embark upon a Challenge Based Learning project centred around exploring their heritage through the medium of photography. Delve into the iTunes U course that they used throughout the project week, admire their photographs and discover how they edited them to convey a mood.
“This book will inspire and guide educators through the process of setting up your own Challenge Based Learning Project and will provide you with skills that are transferable across the curriculum.”
