Activity 9 - @CTIVATED Classroom - Creating Activity
The ACT Model consists of five active layers, where each layer is a pedagogy that can be applied in the classroom. In this section we will consider the fourth layer of the ACT model - the Creation pedagogy.
It's getting cognitively tougher as we climb the layers. You know the fear - if you don't you soon will - of being faced with a blank document and having to write something. It's one thing to talk about content or even correct content, but to create your own content really requires us to be intellectually invested. And then the best part, after putting in the effort, an artefact remains.
- This next activity will take about 5 minutes of your time. But it really is an ACTIVITY. That means you will need to move around a little bit. So only do it if you have 5 minutes to spare. You will see how powerful the creating pedagogy can be. If you're ready to take on the challenge then GO HERE!
There are some amazing tools that can be used to support the creating pedagogy, such as Powtoon that allows you to build animations, to Easelly that lets you build infographics. Visualising and creating content is an extremely powerful pedagogy.
