Pedagogical Focus

During the first cycle, the teacher wanted to make the lessons more engaging for pupils through using technology to communicate with other children, in another country - to bring the issues to life. 

Reflecting on this process, she could gather information on what worked well from her observations during the lessons each week, alongside looking at what aspects/functions of the technology on the online platform had been used. 

The teacher also undertook a summative survey, getting the pupils to reflect on their use of the technology at the end of the project. She explored what aspects of the online platform had been engaging for the pupils.    

Research Question

How can technology be used to gather data and share findings on a real world environmental problem to facilitate great intercultural understanding of climate change/threats across two countries.
