Science and health lectures for 11 and 12 year olds (4)

21 December, 2022

Thanks for the added detail and thoughts Richard,very helpful and encouraging ...

Great to hear of the scope and duration of work on this.

A recent solar system trail in Liverpool was verygood:

Thank you for your observation re. the educationalpotential of Hodges' model ...

Yes you are on the right lines - even as I am fuzzy - rambling here - as *evidence* is needed ...

"The Hodges method is an educational exercise? ** and the building blocks are health and care concepts."

In EDUCATION Hodges' model can support -

reflection, critical thinking, problem solving(thinking IN and OUT of the box - INTEGRATION too)

vocabulary learning, personal development (within and as part of lifelong learning)

Subject driven applications

PSHE - (this is an obvious avenue - I will approach re. conference presentation?)


Social and Economic History - health

Sciences (all of them)

HumanitiesMind/Concept mapping (So yes!)

 More formally:

Curriculum development (design, planning,evaluation)


assessment, planning, interventions, evaluation

person-centredness, holistic care (parity ofesteem - achieving / demonstrating / measuring ? )integrating care

More formally:

SDGs, Social, Commercial and PoliticalDeterminants of Health

I may have noted previously ...

Idea of a pilot study - not 11-12 year olds butmight be possible from a 'key' year to another - part of a reflectivejournal that also supports and facilitates student well-being in anongoing educational career...

Previous idea of student nurses in Year 1, 2, 3. Using the model to map their well-being and 'progress' across themodel's four domains - spiritual too as appropriate across theirstudent career. Carry over as - newly qualified nurses - an aim being for to reduce burnout (quite an 'ask' for any model / conceptual framework*).

There is a very serious issue here, with the well-being of students generally, given suicides and need for prevention / safeguarding.

- to Planetary health. (The conference and videos,I can readily identify with - notions of Deep Space, Deep Time, DeepCare ...)

Many thanks Richard and all,

*But not for a relational ontology?
