The teachers were then issued with loan tablets that they can earn by attending the entire course as well as implementing what they have learned in their classroom, using a badging system. The course consist of 10 modules with 13 compulsory badges and 5 challenge badges and the Carnarvon teachers are certainly up for the challenge!!
The magic about this teaching strategy is that each expert group member has to take responsibility for their acquired skills and have to explain it back to their home group members. This results in everybody being involved in the learning process. The Carnarvon teachers were fast learners and lots of fun was had by all.
They were introduced to the requirements for earning badges and brainstormed some ideas regarding how to integrate, not only the tablet, but also the teaching strategy into their classrooms.
