I run a Guide unit each week in a church hall. It’s about as low-tech as I can get in comparison to the day-job, but I think in a way that’s a good thing. When you have a classroom full of students with iPads, it can occasionally make you forget how to approach things unplugged.
Girlguiding is currently changing the programme (loosely, the curriculum) nationally for all units, which is a very positive step. It last changed significantly when I was still at the age to be one of my Guides. This means they are testing activities, refining the offering for this summer. The girls in my unit chose to try out a shadow puppet storytelling activity. As one can’t watch a performance when you’re in it, we recorded their progress just like the students in my classroom might independently with their iPad.

I compiled a summary of what they got up to using Apple’s Clips App, and then tweeted it. Members of the programme team were delighted to see.
