There are a few places available on our July online A-Z Thinking Moves (Metacognition) training course, accredited by Dialogueworks. This course is excellent for teachers, school leaders and youth group leaders – plus we are offering significant discounts for student teachers who attend the July training.
Why Thinking Moves?
Our thinking ability is what makes us distinctively human. Yet we have no generally accepted approach to teaching thinking – and no common vocabulary to describe different ways of thinking. This, when you think about it, is extraordinary. Imagine trying to teach or learn maths if we did not have commonly accepted terms such as add, subtract, multiply and divide.
Thinking Moves A – Z provides a vocabulary for thinking. The moves themselves are not new – we all use them in our learning and our life every day. But now we have a way of talking about how we think, and that gives us a means to work on improving the effectiveness of our thinking.
Each place costs only £125 per person and includes:
- 6 hrs online training plus webinars and a PDF copy of the A-Z Thinking Moves book.
- Access to the premium resources from Dialogueworks – a comprehensive bank of lesson plans, assembly plans,
- Online support from Paula and Rebecca at Permanent Education once you go back to school.
The next course is:
3.30-5.30 pm – 6th, 8th and 13th July – To secure your place contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07914 853919
Metacognition made simple
Research by the Education Endowment Foundation has shown that effective strategies for metacognition and self-regulation have consistently high levels of impact and can be particularly effective for low achieving and disadvantaged pupils. This Thinking Moves A – Z course supports every step of the EEF’s recommended framework for metacognition and self-regulated learning.
