In2edu I.C.T. Resources Enhancing Education & Learning

My I.C.T motto is, "Learn to Think, Learn to Learn" (available in banner form here - click on "Thinking and Learning" section) because I see that apart from values teaching, empowering pupils with thinking skills and habits is vital.

These resources cover a range of the current thinking styles and forms and will provide you with a handy range of blackline and coloured masters ready to print.

Keeping to to KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) I usually focus learning around the idea of FAT questions to enliven a sense of wonder and awe in children. FAT questions are simply ones that force us to "think/ wonder" about our world. FAT questions should help us see connections, patterns, differences and similarities around us an in our world. FAT questions are not about a whole lot of details and information, but how we are thinking about that information. (See FAT questions PDF) FAT questions are those that come from the higher end of Blooms Taxonomy (Creating, Evaluating, Analysing- see section below). Integrated learning resources/ rich tasks and thematic units will support learning in a deeper thinking environment.
