We are now entering the last week in May and this means lots of work needs to be handed in for our students, and our teachers and staff are working as hard as they can to make sure the students can show all the knowledge accumulated during the year. I am so proud of how our school has worked during these troubled times but now is not the time to relax, but the time to focus and make sure we all finish well.
The coming weeks after this one will be a little bit different with outdoor activities and excursions so you could say this is the last normal week of the academic year. Hopefully, we can have some luck with the weather in June and our students can enjoy some sun before school ends.
This week's Team Kista Talk is on cognitive load and can be found here! Cognitive load is an important concept to understand for teachers, students, and parents since it is part of the reason for our pedagogical philosophy at IES Kista and also one of the reasons why we do not allow mobile phones in school.
