Guiding Students Through the Learning Pit

A popular & effective model for enhancing dialogue, questioning, and student motivation

Workshop Description

 

James Nottingham created The Learning Pit to encourage his students to step out of their comfort zone and seek challenges that will deepen their learning. Today, the model is used around the world to enhance students’ language of learning, metacognition, resilience and curiosity. It also helps teachers identify when to move students from surface-to deep-learning, as well as providing a framework for effective questioning.

 

Learning Intentions

 

• Understand how the Learning Pit can be used to encourage learners of all ages to step out of their comfort zone and take on more challenges.

 

• Know when to support, when to challenge, when to confuse and when to engage students so that they move from surface to deep learning.

 

• Learn how to teach students to use “Pit Tools”so that they grow their independence, resilience and self-efficacy.
