9:30am – 3:00pm Live Online Training

This online and interactive course will give teachers powerful tools to develop better learners in two really powerful ways. We’ll briefly consider what great learners are, and then explore the first key focus on metacognition. Metacognition is well established as a powerful aspect of learning, but what exactly is it, and how can it be practically applied in the classroom? How can metacognition contribute to independent learning & wellbeing? The second key focus is on memory. Arguably, ‘if nothing in the long-term memory has been altered, nothing has been learned’. So how can we help children to retain, recall, and apply all the learning they do – and that we teach – more effectively? What practical techniques can we use & share with pupils and colleagues? This course aims to equip teachers with ideas that will empower their professional practice, and their pupils.


Course Objectives:

• Briefly consider what ‘great learners’ are in today’s context
• Explore five powerful ways of thinking about metacognition & how to apply it in school
• Learn about the core teaching & learning messages from research on memory
• Encounter lots of practical techniques for upgrading longer-term learning
• Enjoy an interactive and really useful day!
