What IS Learning Studio?
A million years ago, when I was in Years 7 and 8 school subjects included things like English, Maths, History, Geography, Economics (even this waited 'til you were older) and maybe some typing (ON A MANUAL TYPEWRITER)
Anyway, we've learned lots since then and realised that sometimes learning is better when we mix some of those subjects ALL TOGETHER.
So Learning Studio is a mix of History, Geography, some Economics, some ICT skills, some English BUT ALSO some researching skills, personal management skills, cyber safety, thinking skills PLUS MORE. It's a big bundle of learning!
Every year we have an over arching big idea or big question. This year, 2013, our big idea is:
Learning Studio B

We will cover one aspect of that big statement. Our specific area of research will be.......
Finally, there's a blog linked to this page and it'll be your job to read it and to post comments that are related and appropriate to the task.
Eventually we're hoping that you'll create your own blog (and even your own Learning Studio website) and we will be able to read and respond to each others' blogs.
Even the occasional poll...
