What started as the seed of an idea has bloomed into a brand new course at Otago Girls' High School.
In a nutshell, Launch is a Project Based Learning course (PBL). But it encompasses so much more than the title possibly suggests.
In 2019 the course is pitched at Year 12 & 13 students who wish to embark on a self-driven and directed project. It might be to design a product they see a need for, provide a service that currently is not available, or perhaps start a movement around an issue that is important to them.
How does it work?
Amy-Lee Budd is the new Coach for the Launch course at OGHS. Together with the students we will blog about our learning journey in 2020. Previously, Launch has been coached by Rowan Taigel who is now Director at www.whatifpld.com
