What is #Unhomework all about?

However, the fuller answer is – as the book subheading says, how to get the most out of homework without really setting it. The premise is simple; create an effective learning environment whereby children can set, mark and evaluate homework for themselves with the teacher’s support. It frees teachers, children and parents from the constraints of traditional homework, yet still meets the expectations placed on teachers by policies, SLTs and parents. Though, perhaps, the greatest achievement of #Unhomework is to utilise all of the things that parents and children do already – or actually cannot do because traditional homework gets in the way. By using these as valuable learning experiences #Unhomework literally transforms learning in and out of the class, as well as home life for the better.
