Deep Thinking for Deep Learning
Deep learning is driven by deep thinking...What knowledge and skills do teachers need in order to make deep learning happen? It’s not simply about using thinking tools with our learners, it about understanding how the brain processes information and then facilitating that all important process by selecting, framing and sequencing thinking tools into the learning process - in the right place AND at the right time.
The infusion of thinking into classroom pedagogical practice is paramount because quality learning is dependent on quality thinking. In this webinar with Lane, you will develop your knowledge and understanding of deep thinking, so that you can enable and empower your learners to develop theirs!
•discover how the brain processes information; explore what hinders information processing; and learn what you can do to facilitate this all important process with your learners
•develop knowledge and understanding of the ‘acquiring and integrating’ and ‘extending and refining’ phases of the learning process
•explore specific strategies and tools to determine a learner’s foundational schema so that it can be strategically built upon
•develop new skills for deliberately aiding learners in the acquisition and integration of new learning
•develop knowledge and understanding of depth vs breadth of thinking; explore how to frame graphic organisers to deliberately guide processing in order to deepen a learner’s thinking and therefore learning
Target Audience: Teachers (all grades), Instructional Coaches, Allied Educators and School Leaders
