Poetry in (all the com-) motion…

​“Tell me a fact and I’ll learnTell me the truth and I’ll believe. But tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever.”

Indian Proverb

I met a fantastic teacher at the ‘Computing At School 2020’ conference in London, who really inspired me with her approach to helping students recall knowledge about computing.

Now I’m a huge advocate of learning through music and telling stories, but I’ve never come across this approach before and I think it is truly marvellous. Learning computing, through poetry!

Have a look at her website: TEACHING COMPUTING WITH POETRY – MISS TOUGH

Not only is it full of amazing poems, but if you check out the menu you’ll find riddles, downloadable booklets, inspired artwork and even an escape room puzzle!

So thank you Miss Tough, for taking our learning to the next level! I’ve added a quick sample, which is one of my faves!
