Thinking Matters advocates the need for there to be a joined up understanding of the science of learning, the role of the teacher (the cognitive coach) and the social and emotional elements that play an essential role in successful lifelong learning.
With input from practitioners in the Thinking Schools Network, we have created
training that enables this research to be put into practice by teachers in the classroom. Crucially our consultants work with schools in how to apply the Big Picture in a WHOLE SCHOOL context so that it is understood and is used by all members of the school community across all subjects and by all student cohorts.
The Big Picture also echoes the University of Exeters criteria to become an accredited Thinking School.
Roll over the titles on this interactive image of the Big Picture for further explanations and entry to the Thinking Reference Library.
