one student at a time.
Big Picture is an innovative learning design that has had meaningful impact in the US and around the world. It puts students at the center of their own learning, following a mantra of ‘one student at a time’. The approach explicitly drives engagement in and motivation for learning by unlocking each individual learner’s passions and interests. After the age of 14, every young person spends two days a week on a term-long ‘Real-World-Learning placement’ which pairs them with a mentor, learning in a real world setting linked to their passions and interests. They pursue a rigorously designed project that has meaning and authentic value, and gives them the chance to see how what they learn in the classroom relates to the outside world.
Doncaster will be introducing Big Picture Learning UK for a cohort of up to 60 students per year, starting in January 2019.
