My year 11s are working towards their first text essay of the year. I am aware of the need to make Ako more overt. To this end I have added animations to the words gathering, processing and applying. (They have not translated into this embedded presentation, but the Keynote that the students get have fireworks animating the Ako words) This should get them thinking about the thought process. It also serves as a reminder for me to discuss the common language of learning.
