VLOG 12: Cooperative Learning and TGfU: Run the Gauntlet

Should we start a new unit focussed on a different activity? Or how can we progress learning by using another and different pedagogical model. This VLOG explores how connections can be made between models in a curriculum (or program of study) to progress student learning. The example given is of Cooperative Learning and TGfU.

In the VLOG the game ‘Run the Gauntlet’ is shown. This game is an excellent game to not only play and teach but it is a useful game that allows teachers and students to begin to understand how TGfU might work, particularly when it is adapted using the STEP principle: Space, Time, Equipment, People.
