BRIST: Case Study 2

Author | View as single page | Feedback/Impact


The lead-school is in a large urban city, with high rates of poverty and geographical movement of families and children, with newly arrived citizens seeking asylum alongside other migration and movement patterns. The city has a long tradition of being multicultural with an ethic majority and the school has 68 languages spoken. This means that there are many EAL (English as an additional language) pupils and many are entitled to free school meals. The Year 10 (age 14-15 years old) geography teacher wants to undertake a project to explore the impact of climate change and use digital technologies, as a way of both gathering data for the project and working online with children in another country.
