Phase 5: Summary
Week 9: 05 - 11 March 2012
Dear friends,
Welcome to the "Summary" phase. This is the 9th week of the Learning Circle and the first of two weeks dedicated for posting your summaries.
Update of the Learning Circle
We have posted the update of the Learning Circle. Well done and thank you to all those who posted their answers. We thank you for your commitment and notice how much work has been done of the past week!
We congratulate the following school for posting all answers on time, well done:
  • EFS1 - K.A. Erasmus, De Pinte - Mrs. Lien van Acker & Mrs Evelyne Catry    
  • EFS2 - Sint-Aloysiusinstituut, Geel - Mrs. Carine Van den Eijnde   
  • EFS4 - SMU Cl. 2., Bayombong -  Mrs. Fe T. Lumogdang & Mr. Melencio G. Bernardino, Jr.  
  • EFS8 - CSG. Noordik, Almelo - Mr. Sebastiaan Pol & Mr. Simon Withaar  

We ask the following school to post answers to:

  • EFS3 --> all 9 answers   
  • EFS5 --> to EFS1
  • EFS6 --> to EFS 1,3,7,8,9,10
  • EFS7 --> to EFS 2,5,6
  • EFS9 --> to EFS 3, 5,6.7  
  • EFS10 --> to EFS2     

It is important that you do so as early as possible during this week or else your friends in the LC will not be able to take your research into account while working on their summaries. It will also be sad for them not to receive answers to their questions! 

Agenda for the week
We are in the first week of the "Summary" phase. This phase is meant to organise, summarise and reflect on the information received. Every class will read the answers to their question and write a Summary which they will all post on ONE page for all the schools to enjoy.

The students who post a question are responsible for using the information received and make comparisons across the different regions; for collecting and for editing the material. This process will help them to learn how to review, summarise, evaluate and present information. Remember that also summarising is more than "cut and paste" and an essential 21st century skill. Making a Learning Circle summary actually helps your students to learn and apply that skill.

The following questions are a great way to help students in the summarising process:
  • Why did we ask the question?
  • What did we know about the theme when we started?
  • What did we learn in our classroom?
  • What did we expect to learn?
  • What did we learn from the responses of the students?
  • What was similar or different in the research answers received from the Learning Circle partners?
  • Why do we think these differences exist
Once done, please go to the Summaries Page and post your summary in the page with your school name.
Important Information
Criteria for a quality summary:
  • is posted on time
  • the summary should not be a "Copy/Paste " of answers from other groups. It should be the  summary of what you have learnt during the process.
  • what you learnt from your research and the LC answers.
  • the minimum number of words in the summary for a Communication Based LC is 400.
Enjoy the Learning Circle, Bob Hofman and Ria Kattevilder
