 COMPLETION

 

May 11 - May 22  /  2015

 

In this final phase, we can use the amazing process of peer learning

to write and reflect in a very creative way.

With the feedback of all your peers in the circle we ask you to think about a new children’s right.

One you haven’t seen yet during the Learning Circles.

Think about it and find your own new right to add to the 54 already existing ones.

What can you do to ensure that your own identified child’s right is successful?

 

We invite you to choose for one of the options:

                                        1. to present your new children’s right as a group in a creative way in the wiki.

                                        2. ‘the peerScholar way’: all your students will write an individual letter to Unicef,
                                             describing their new children's right.

 


Please choose one of the two options for the last challenge of this Learning Circle 
on this page, before April 24th.

 

 

On November 20th 2014 the world celebrated the 25th anniversary of the adoption of

the International United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

We sincerely hope that more and more people and governments continue to stand up for these 54 rights!

If children know their rights and learn to think and act critically, more progress will be possible.

  

Option 1: Completion with a group assignment.

 

During the 12 weeks of your circle participation you have seen a lot of information about the present Children's Rights and how the world is dealing with it. 

We invite the students of your group to create a new Children's Right.

 

Group assignment.
We ask you to share on your schoolpage:

 

  • Your lessons learned and eye-openers during the Learning Circle process

  • Your own, new, to be added, Children's Right and your motivation why you think this specific Right needs to be highlighted. 

  • How can you make this children's right to a success?

 

Present this new Children's Right in the wiki in your own creative way,

by making an essay, letter, poster, presentation, film, drawing ..
You can use all kinds of media to share your contribution with the other participants.

 

 

Option 2: Individual assignment for each student in:

 

 

 

All students of your Learning Circle group will make an individual assignment.

We will use the process of peer learning by giving and receiving feedback to/from three peers, your global classmates.

 

What will we do?

In this assignment we request each student in the Circle to write a paper to UNICEF.

By giving and receiving feedback to and from three peers we ask each student to critically think and learn together.

 

Why will we do it?

Collaborative learning in a Learning Circle allows students to learn and work together; the diversity in their countries and backgrounds creates a rich learning environment.

To end a circle with a regular test, in a closed classroom setting, would take away the global dimension of your amazing work in the past 13 weeks.

Supported by the University of Toronto, we are offering a new way of assessment, based upon peer assessment and the main idea that also during the assess phase students continue to grow and learn together.

The tool we will be using is called peerScholar - We are thrilled to be able to invite you in this global classroom assignment!

 

What is peerScholar?

peerScholar is an innovative on-line pedagogical tool that supports students’ collaboration, learning and reflection.

peerScholar facilitates learning through 3 phases;

  • Create
  • Assess
  • Reflect/revise

 

Students first submit their assignment, then they give feedback to their peers work, and finally they reflect on and learn from the peer feedback that they received.

The Assignment.

 

Call for Papers - International Conference 25 Years CRC

 

On November 20th 2014 the World celebrated the 25th anniversary of the adoption of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). UNICEF has opened a ‘Call for Papers’ to invite youth to propose one extra Child’s Right to be added to the present Convention. During the 12 weeks of your circle participation you have seen a lot of information about the present Children's Rights and how the world is dealing with it. We ask you to write a paper (1A4/500 words) to UNICEF in which you include:

  • A brief personal introduction

  • Your lessons learned and eye-openers during the Learning Circle process

  • Your own, new, to be added, Child Right and your motivation why you think this specific Right needs to be highlighted.

 

Instructions and tips

During the first phase, from May 11-13, you will write your paper. During phase 2, the assess phase, from May 14-18, you are invited to give feedback on the work of three of your global Circle classmates. In phase 3, from May 19-22, you will receive and read feedback from three global Circle peers, after which you can revise your work and benefit from your peers suggestions.

Place yourself in the position of the UNICEF committee; they will receive thousands of papers. What can you do to make your paper ‘out standing’?

 

How will we do it?

To access peerScholar each student will receive an individual login username and password, sent to the teachers by email.
