Below is my 2nd Assignment for this paper; Implement, document and critique a digital and collaborative learning innovation applied to a specific area of my practice.
Problem: The students were tech savvy, they were already demonstrating reciprocity with other members of staff (their class teachers and teachers in other areas of the school), they were scaffolding, engaged and beginning to bring new ideas to the group.
Solution: Student Agency - Students will work collaboratively to develop their own company that will provide funds for the school using their digital competencies.
Unique Value Proposition: Learner Agency driving entrepreneurship in Primary School.
Stakeholders: Year 5 & 6 eLearning Leaders
Teachers & Staff, All Students, Principal, School Community, Board of Trustees, PTA
Early Adopters: Group of 12 Year 6s eLeaders
Subsequent Groups: Year 5 eLearning Leaders, Senior School Students, Student Clients
Resourcing: Students to problem solve (school library is available)
Sustainability: THIS IS MY FUTURE FOCUS
Scalability: Learner Agency allows for the students to continue moving forward at their own pace. There is a large scope for ideas and skills to be developed.

This blog will track my learning journey with MIND LAB and how I implement this new knowledge into practice.
