The point is often made that traditional teaching strategies become increasingly ineffective for the mobile phone generation in the UK. Can we make a difference for young people here?
Incremental learning in key skills like Maths and English, and gathering participatory data might be applied to the poor and marginalised youth of the United Kingdom both born here and members of the African, Asian or South American diaspora.
I tested the idea with some frustrated teachers required to teach complex maths and other concepts to young people who can’t demonstrate prerequisite key skills. They were very positive.
