As a company, Challenging Learning held the official Visible Learning+™ licence for Scandinavia from 2013-2019.

During this time, we ran long-term Visible Learning+™ projects in more than 200 schools and colleges across Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. James Nottingham and John Hattie also keynote 30+ conferences together across the region and around the world during this time. As a delegate in Stockholm remarked: “I’ve heard people talk about Visible Learning before, but it wasn’t until I heard James Nottingham that I actually understood it and knew what to do next. Simply brilliant!”

The Visible Learning® database was built by John Hattie. It represents Hattie’s synthesis of more than 1600 meta-analyses, covering 95,000 studies and 300 million students. This makes it the world’s largest evidence base on what works best in schools to improve student learning. From that research, Hattie has identified more than 250 factors that have an impact on student achievement.

Hattie’s synthesis shows that when staff use strategies with higher effects (greater than an effect size of 0.4), there is an increased likelihood that student learning will accelerate. Thus, the effectiveness of Visible Learning® comes from helping leaders and teachers make strategic decisions about how best to use their time, energy, and resources to maximise impact.

Suitable for teachers, leaders and support staff working with students between the ages of 3-19, we can help you to:

  • Understand the truths (and debunk the myths) about John Hattie’s Visible Learning® research
  • Identify the key points from Hattie’s analysis of more than 1600 meta-analyses and 95,000 studies in education
  • Gain an insight into why many popular strategies for improving education are wide of the mark and – by contrast – which strategies will actually help raise attainment and improve progress
  • Find the best places to start with Visible Learning®
  • Learn how to use Visible Learning® to identify and respond to all students appropriately
