This webinar is being delivered by the Driver Youth Trust. It will explore the cognitive challenges an individual may experience when learning. It will cover what it means to be ‘ready to learn’ and provide strategies to support those children and young people that may find learning a challenge. This might include, comprehending the class teaching, retaining it and recalling it when needed.
Evidence suggests the use of ‘metacognitive strategies’ – which get pupils to think about their own learning – can be worth the equivalent of an additional +7 months’ progress when used well. However, while the potential impact of these approaches is very high, particularly for disadvantaged pupils, less is known about how to apply them effectively in the classroom. This session will outline and share a number of practical approaches teaching assistants can use in their work with pupils which translate key principles in to practice and develop their pupils’ metacognitive skills and knowledge.
