First Term 2 Twitter Chat

Today we participated in our first Twitter chat for Term 2. The topic today was Outdoor Education. It was a flipped chat today. That means we watched a YouTube video before our chat. You can check out the YouTube video below. 

Then we discussed the Twitter questions in small groups and shared our ideas with the rest of the class. Here are the questions that we had to think about today: 

  1. Do you agree with the people in this video on what outdoor education is? Why?
  2. What do you think are the benefits of learning outside the classroom?
  3. Do you think learning outside the classroom should be part of all the 'normal' lessons? Why?
  4. Do you think going on a field trip is a good out of the classroom learning opportunity? Why?
  5. Where would you like to go for a learning outside your classroom experience? Why?
  6. Would you rather use a Virtual Field Trip instead of physically going to or visiting a certain place? Why/ why not?
  7. What does your school do for outdoor education?
  8. Outdoor education is about outdoor activities, but it is also about learning about the environment. Why is this important?

We all took turns at writing and tweeting a tweet today. Everyone had a turn at doing something. Miss Gentil helped us collect our tweets, by using Storify. Here are some of our tweets from today.
