Pupil independence through developing a metacognitively rich approach to Graphic Organisers!
Graphic organizers guide learners’ thinking as they fill in and build upon a visual map or diagram. Mentioned in the EEF Metacognition Guidance Report, they are some of the most effective visual learning strategies for students and are applied across the curriculum to enhance learning and understanding of subject matter content – they help the learner build and connect learning and structure thinking.
This day is aligned with the Ofsted and ECF Framework and covers key topics to support learners to:
Actively present and structure material
Make enduring connections that foster understanding helping to integrate new knowledge into larger concepts
Structure elements to both facilitate memorising of information and to understand relationships between parts and the whole
‘Chunk’ new learning to reduce demand on memory capacity
Know how to learn and study effectively
Who: This event is open to practitioners from all phases and all settings.
