Discovery Time is a collaborative, action packed, inquiry based exploration of learning. It allows the students to be in control of their learning while developing the ATLs, and strengthening their connections to the learner profile and key concepts. 

We will take you through how our Discovery Time has developed over the years, beginning with Gay Hay’s book Discovering Key Competencies through Activity-Based , Child-Directed Learning, and how we track and assess the student learning, while allowing for student agency. We will also look at how we are incorporating the new guidelines of the Enhanced PYP on Play and Early Learning and look at what our next steps are on our journey. 

Key Takeaways
  • How to have rigour in both teaching and assessment of a program driven by student agency. 
  • Links between Discovery Time and  the Enhanced PYP - Play based Learning
  • Opportunity to consider how to use the resources (personnel, space and equipment) in your own school to develop a Discovery Time program that works in your context. 
  • A chance to collaborate, share ideas and expertise with teachers from across the foundation.
