Time is a finite resource in all our lives. With the pressures of an over-loaded, exam-driven curriculum, showing our students how to maximise time and learn to plan is a skill that will be of immediate and lifelong benefit.
This webinar will yield immediate benefits for teachers and parents in their busy lives too!
This webinar will enable participants to:
reflect on their use of time and the benefits of planning for learning
explore the link between motivation and planning
outline a range of strategies and resources to maximise time for practical use in the classroom for pupils’ use and in teachers’ decision-making
demonstrate planning techniques that have been shown to optimise the brain for learning and ways they can be practised in the classroom.
