Last Term we had our Paideia Seminar. We had to get into pairs and then talk about a perspective. Me, Amelia, Pisirina and Jahzara were in a group.
We chose the perspective of schools. This is what we had to think about. Schools - what will schools do? How will the day be different to what it is now? Or will it? What will be the advantages/disadvantages of not coming to school? Will we have to come to a building called school in the future? What would we miss out on or gain?
When we got in the tusitala it was all set up with our names in front of our desk. Then we started. My group started the polite argument off first.
Myself and Amelia said being at school is more easier than getting home schooled or learning online. If you are home schooled you won’t be able to communicate with other people face to face and you won’t be able to play with your friends. If you don’t go to school you will also miss out on the really cool things happening and playing sport.
Then after talking and arguing politely Mrs Lagitupu told us what we had to talk about. She said “ this is what you have to speak about stop telling us to switch off our devices we are a digital tribe now. As soon as she finished talking I said well I mean sometimes you can go on your devices but you also should go play outside with other people. Also people are stuck on new games and youtube because they get there new trends from the internet.
At the end of the seminar we had to say one thing that we’ve learnt. My one thing I had learnt was that I can speak more. The one thing I can work on is preparing for the Seminar.
