      SInce the workshop what is one in strategy, one takeaway you have implemented so far this term?

      My one implementation has been to share 2 unplugged activities - kids bot and treasure island . Such fun however the most important part of the session was to be explicit in the language, links to the Progress Outcomes and how it fits so it is more than just a one off activity and can be grown in many ways.

        Day 20

        Create
        First, create a studio and add all of your Getting Unstuck projects to it. Second, choose one of your projects from a previous day of Getting Unstuck, make a copy of it, and revise it. What's something about the project that would benefit from more time or fresh eyes?
