Description

Rethinking the relationship between Formal and Informal learning

Layman's description

I initiated this project as Research Director at Futurelab, on the basis of my work on the ScreenPlay Project. Funded by Microsoft, this project was intended to explore the question – how might you design a curriculum that would build on young people’s own passions, interests and experiences? John Morgan and Ben Williamson, later also Sarah Payton and Tash Lee, working with two local schools in Bristol, further developed the project in important directions, developing a range of materials that support educators to think about the relationship between knowledge, students and schools.
