iLearn

 

iLearn is a new course on learning which was originally developed by Tim Manson and Mike Bennett at Slemish College.  


I am hoping to deliver this course in Cullybackey College from Sept 2015. 


The course is built on current good practice/ thinking/ psychology and pedagogy on education.  


What is iLearn?

  1. Bullet  an opportunity to think about learning

  2. Bullet  an opportunity to discover how to be a better learner

  3. Bullet  a place for motivation

  4. Bullet  a course that will support students in their understanding of the 5 R’s of learning


It is NOT study skills//  NOT Careers//  NOT PSE - its about creating your own learning toolkit!
