Creating better, more motivated learners

Students may differ in their academic abilities – but every student can become a better learner – if they are taught some research-proven learning strategies and techniques.

This is the driving idea behind two new and unique practical video training programmes.

Together they create a more active, collaborative class, helping pupils to become more independent, motivated, self-managed learners, which is essential if they are to take advantage of the new Digital School technology.

The author is Colin Rose, a founder-member of the UK Campaign for Learning, who has designed the teaching methodology for the EU-funded Eduscience project.

If you can learn HOW to learn, then all learning becomes natural; if it’s natural, then it’s quicker and if it’s quicker, you can learn more effectively with better results than before.
