A2 level students now on study leave still working together

This year we have trialled the very simple device of a wiki to keep collaborative working going during A2 study leave. Rather than students coming into school for history lessons, thus potentially disrupting a study day with travel etc, we have fixed times to communicate online via the wiki. With one tricky question per session, students can contribute, question, challenge each other and prep possible responses together. Have a look at this example, to see how the group are deepening each others thinking, helping each other out with evidence, correcting errors, challenging interpretations etc. Great historical thinking in action!
