Engage

How to improve learning through games, competition and classroom adventures.

'Engage' is one of our Deep Dive Days - training designed to arm teachers with classroom ready strategies from the latest findings in the fields of cognitive and behavioural development, neuro-science and psychology. Whether you are a Thinking School or not, our Deep Dive Days are ideal CPD training for any teacher.

Workshop Description: This Deep Dive workshop will be developed, in consultation with the school, to present a wide range of activities and processes aimed at deepening pupil engagement in learning. The day will demonstrate how a pupil’s classroom experience can be transformed with tried and tested approaches underpinned by research. Using Costa and Kallick’s Habits Of Mind as a roadmap - staff will participate in a number of activities that will demonstrate how problem solving activities, games, classroom drama and competition can enhance their pupils' learning experience.

Target Audience:  Anyone in school including teachers, teaching assistants, headteachers, leaders, pastoral teams, Senco's and/or whole school staff. Sessions can also be adapted for groups of parents or older students wanting to apply this to revision strategies.
