  • 2. Programme for today  Hopes and fears?  Characteristics of 16-19 learners  Potential pitfalls  Strategies to overcome such pitfalls  Reflection skills  Opportunity to feedback & experiment
  • 3. 16-19 learners (Cons and Pros) • If you: know it, use it, have heard of it, buy it, listen to it, do it… …it’s old to them! • Unpredictable, can and will catch you off guard, will ask challenging questions, and will want to get one over on you. • Have incredibly short attention spans and will drift off-topic at a moments notice, unless they see the relevance to them. • Always looking for a simpler, easier, more straight-forward way of doing things. (PIONEERING) • Entertaining, diverse, exciting, and rewarding people to work with (INSPIRATIONAL) • Capture their interest and they will want to let you into their world and show you who they really can be! (EAGER TO PLEASE) C H A L L E N G E
  • 4. Potential pitfalls 1. Why have we got to be here? How is this relevant to us? Why should I listen to you? 2. Low productivity and work rate 3. Not having enough prepared – running out of things to challenge learners
  • 5. Strategies to overcome – “Why have we got to be here?”  Relate topic to vocational area needs (Jobs, skills).  Find a common ground to connect with individuals (Your story, successes/failures)  Use a multitude of varied and engaging media (Text, Video, Internet, Social)  Young people love to be challenged (Solve a problem, create something new)
  • 6. Strategies to overcome – Low productivity/ work rate  Questioning  E.g. Pose, pause, pounce, bounce  Timed targets  Group work and defined roles/practice  E.g. researcher, scribe, presenter/ “book, buddy and boss”  “Pit stops”  Checking learning and keeping learners on their toes
  • 7. Strategies to overcome – Not having enough prepared  Arrival activity  Clear objectives  Open tasks  Element of challenge/competition  Extension activities
  • 8. Reflection skills After every session remember to consider the following (Reflection-on-action)… Don’t be afraid to try something new, or change in the moment if its not working! (Reflection-in-action) Positive Negative What aspect of that session went really well? What parts of that session didn’t seem to work? Why did the group seem to like this? Why didn’t the group seem to like this? How could we make more of this in future sessions? How could I modify this next time?
