We have set up a pilot Discovery Web which is a team of five people workingÂ together to do some research. The first web comprises of three pupils and twoÂ adults. They have agreed that every member of the web has equal status âÂ so that the adults donât slip into âteacherâ roles but act as components of theÂ team.
Discovery Webs do research at a simplified level. They find things out,Â they use their skills or learn new ones to get it done, and once answers orÂ relevant information has been discovered they let others know [using inclusiveÂ language or symbols].
Potential research questions ranged from ‘Healthy Eating’ to ‘Who decides ourÂ timetable’ in the end the agreed question was âWho are the bulliesâ.
