Making Learning Matter:

creativity, investment and challenge for all learners 


Thursday 11th October 2018, London

Independent Thinking Ltd and IAPS

Location: Avonmouth House (etc.venue) 6 Avonmouth Street, London SE1 6N

Why should children care about their learning? How can we protect children into complex curriculum areas?

Our conference will map out the big thinking around how children can be hooked into learning and that learning be made relevant, important and worth investing in. The day will be led by experienced leaders and teachers, each offering their unique take on the subject, whilst offering time and space for colleagues to consider their own settings. The conference will take the form of a variety of inputs including keynotes, practical session and a Q and A panel. This will be an innovative and informative conference with sessions around pedagogy, curriculum, warmth and optimism.

Audience: School Leaders interested in curriculum innovation; KS 1-3 class teachers; teachers with teaching and learning responsibilities beyond the classroom

Objectives: A day of cutting-edge professional learning, interaction, reflection, dialogue and optimism focusing on how educators can help children care more about what they are learning. Colleagues will be given grounded examples of inclusive curriculum provision from leadership and classroom perspectives. These will be underpinned with up-to-date research around creative and critical thinking, coupled with credible and usable strategies to take back to their settings
