The winner of the IBSC Action Research Award for 2018 is Nick Little from The Scots College in Sydney, Australia. Nick receives this award for the completion of a highly innovative action research project of the highest standard, and for his valuable contribution to the IBSC action research community.
Nick's research, working within the topic of 'Adaptability in a Changing World,' focussed on exploring effective teaching strategies for Next Generation Learning Spaces, and, in particular, how Task-Based Learning might help Grade 9 boys better adapt to learning effectively in these spaces. Through this action, the boys were able to identify tasks that worked well in NGLS spaces and link their learning to those tasks. They demonstrated increased engagement in their learning and an awareness of the need for increased focus and responsibility, to adapt to the increased independence given them in those spaces.
