Golden Age of Invention

Young learners at the Isle of Portland Aldridge Community have been studying 'Inventions that changed the world'. The knowledge harvest (carried out at the start of a topic) highlighted that the children wanted to focus on the earliest inventions. With this in mind,  the learners researched the Golden Age of Invention commonly known as the Dark Ages. The learners focused on the scholars from that era.

Learners worked in four groups and were asked to create a presentation on a particular scholar. Children learnt to cope with set backs, learnt to delegate roles between them and were able to take control of their own learning. The learners were fully engaged and developed successful presentations using an online program called Prezi. The pictures below show the learners presenting their work -
