Punk Learning – If the Kids are United…

Posted: November 7, 2012 in Punk Learning

“Just take a look around you. What do you see? Kids with feelings like you and me. Understand him, he’ll understand you. For you are him, and he is you. If the kids are united then we’ll never be divided” If the Kids are United, Sham 69

Two lessons in and:

  • we’ve launched Punk Learning and the DIY ethos using music, images, iconography, discussion, reactions and media
  • we’ve looked at what a Punk Learner is using examples of famous Punk Learners such as Charles Darwin, George Orwell and Jessie J
  • we’ve used our manifesto to look at scenarios and attacked them in a different and creative way
  • we’ve articulated what skills and attributes we need to become a Punk Learners

To quote the thoughts of one group – “Be Creative; be resourceful use everything around to help, not just what you have been told to do. Take Risks; take creative risks even if they sound bad it could be good. Be Different; make your own style. Be Yourself; Don’t just do what people tell you to; follow your own path”

My students are “getting” the concept – why wouldn’t they?

“Freedom is given, speak how you feel. I have no freedom, how do you feel? They can lie to my face, but not to my heart. If we all stand together, it will just be the start. If the kids are united then we’ll never be divided. If the kids are united then we’ll never be divided” If the Kids are United, Sham 69

Part 4, in nasty green vinyl, will show how we created our punk driving questions using QFT to help us plan and create our learning – proper Do It Yourself Learning.
