Learning to Learn - Teacher Only Day
What a great day we had and the feedback keeps coming in. So good to hear about what is happening in our classrooms that was introduced (or reinforced on this day). It ties in particularly well with the Infolink focus & am hearing everywhere I go about a range of things being tried out with our kids - reverse brainstorming, cooperative learning strategies... The theme for the day “Learning to Learn”, had the main aim to support teachers with a range of practical classroom strategies that can help our children develop towards independent life-long learners. The presenters we invited addressed this theme very well in ways that were both complementary and diverse in their approaches. It was awesome to see the commitment from schools to have everybody on board & renewing the networks that began last year - as well as learning some great strategies to work with in the classroom.
