Learning to Learn: Using the Learning Pit to Create a Culture of Learning
The Learning Pit explains why more challenge leads to enhanced learning. It helps teachers structure lessons, and students challenge themselves. It shows teachers how to develop questioning and facilitation techniques, and by encouraging students to go through the Learning Pit, it helps them to grow their resilience, decision-making and higher-order thinking skills.
During this full day interactive workshop, James Nottingham will share strategies and frameworks that can be used to teach students ‘how’ to learn as well as what to learn. He will support delegates in the effective use of The Learning Pit to encourage students to embrace challenge while building self-efficacy. The workshop is aimed at teachers, coaches, leaders, or parents.
Participants will learn about:
Creating a culture in which students talk positively about learning how to learn.
Teaching students how to learn, including questioning, reflection and thinking skills
Deepening students’ learning with improved questioning techniques
Encouraging the social and emotional behaviors your students will need to grow into expert learners
