Learning how to drive?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if learning how to drive outside of school counts towards creative hours?

My logic is that since i'm being taught how to drive and actually learning it does but thats just me. What are your opinions? If not, do you guys have any alternate ideas to do for creative hours?

- Thanks

I have no idea about the driving, but apparently learning how to knit then donating the scarf or whatever you made counts. That seems like a pretty quick and easy CAS idea.

I am not sure that it is even a CAS activity, In CAS guide for 2010/2011, it state in "What is not CAS?" :

* Work experience which is only benfits the student.

But you can make it a CAS activity by proving that:

*It has a new role that develop you.

*That you learn something from the activity.

*It has a consequences on other.

*It has a benfit on you and others.

* And you can reflect on.

If you were able to do that, i think it is mostly to be action, or service.

Likely an action since you aren't providing a service to others by simply learning. But you are learning something and taking on a new challenge (outcome)

For creative hours, i have a set of activities:

1- Poster construction or advertisment.

2- Learing how to design and design it.

3- Writing a short story, Play, Scnario.

4-Photography.

5- physics inventions.

6-Website designs.

7-Producing a multimedia.

8-Writing poems.

and you can think of many other.

According to my CAS-Coordinator, doing your drivers licence does definetely not count for CAS (as you would do it anyway). Don't you have a coordinator or someone who is in charge for that? If they will accept it, then it is their problem...

I don't think it is considered CAS, unless you are purposely getting your license in order carpool people or for a part-time job or something that benefits others as well in the long run.

I would say no. This isn't benefitting anyone but you.

Sorry to contradict you, but of course it's benefitting others. The man taking driving license would become much more aware of how the traffic rules work and hence he won't, for exampel, drive away when he has a duty to give away so the other travelers won't be disturbed. He will become better at forecasting possible accidents on time in which other people could have been involved and be able to prevent it from happening.

To be honest, I can't find any comprehensive reasons for why this activity cannot be considered as "CAS" ...

You would not get any cas hours for it. A few friends of mine has tried that also.lol And anyway I would find it rather difficult to write a CAS reflection sheet on driving :P
