    20. 21. One of the core functions of 21st century education is learning to learn in preparation for a lifetime of change. David Miliband, 2003
    21. 22. We need to produce people who know how to act when they are faced with situations for which they were not specifically prepared. Seymour Papert, 1998

    24. 25. The test of successful education is not the amount of knowledge that pupils take away from school, but their appetite to think, know and their capacity to learn. Sir Richard Livingstone, 1941
    25. 26. Pedagogy should at its best be about what teachers do that not only helps students to learn but actively strengthens their capacity to think and learn David Hargreaves, 2004

    39. 40. Moving knowing to understanding The hub is central to deepening knowledge As much time should be spent reflecting, imagining, questioning and dialoguing about a learning experience as was spent doing the actual learning experience We must move away from a hoop hopping mentality of doing a whole lot of activities one after the other.

    45. 46. Deepening thinking My matrix identifies several relevant comparisons or contrasts, explains why these are relevant and makes a generalisation about the comparison My matrix identifies several relevant comparisons or contrasts and explains why these are relevant My Matrix identifies several relevant comparisons or contrasts My timeline has several ideas sequenced correctly I can explain why they are linked in this order, and predict what might happen next. My timeline has several ideas sequenced correctly and I can explain why they are linked in this order My timeline has several ideas sequenced correctly My timeline has two sequenced idea My definition has several relevant ideas and links these to the whole and looks at the idea in a new way My definition has several relevant ideas and links these to the whole My definition identifies several relevant ideas My definition has one relevant idea My brainstorm has several relevant ideas, I can explain why they are linked to the main idea My brainstorm has several relevant ideas and I can explain why they are linked to the main idea My brainstorm has several relevant ideas My brainstorm has one relevant idea
    46. 47. Using Solo
    47. 48. Student Self Assessment I can use the thinking verbs at the use it stage to explain my new learning and I think beyond what I know and create new ideas and understandings {generalise, predict, Evaluate etc} I can use the thinking verbs at the use it stage to explain my new learning. I cannot ‘use it’ on my own. I need support, prompts or scaffolds. Use it Apply it I can sort information using a variety of thinking tools and explain why I have chosen a particular tool and reflect upon/ evaluate my choice of tool I can sort information using a variety of thinking tools and can explain why I have chosen a particular tool I can sort information using a range of thinking tools e.g matrix, venn, part-whole I can sort information using a thinking tool e.g a matrix or venn I cannot ‘sort it’ information on my own Sort it Compare and contrast findings. Make sense of it I can locate and gather relevant information from a range of sources and show how it links to the topic. I reflect, dialogue and question the information I can locate and gather relevant information from a range of sources and show how it links to the topic by starting to use the hub I can locate and get information from a range of sources I can get relevant information from a single source I cannot gather information on my own Get it Gather information together Extended Abstract Relational Multistructural Unistructural Prestructural Profound Deep Shallow 2 Shallow 1 Emergent
    48. 49. I make more links and connections between pieces of knowledge to create new ideas or deeper understandings and look at these connections in a new way. – generalise predict evaluate I make more links and connections between pieces of knowledge to create new ideas or deeper understandings. I sometimes have an ‘aha’ and I see a link or connection. I can sometimes make connections with support or modelling. I am unable to make connections or links Connect I can imagine many ideas about what might be (fluency) from many different perspectives (flexibility), I can elaborate these ideas (elaboration) and come up with an original idea (originality) I can imagine many ideas about what might be (fluency) from many different perspectives (flexibility) and I can elaborate these ideas (elaboration) I can imagine many ideas about what might be (fluency) from many different perspectives (flexibility) I can imagine many ideas about what might be (fluency) I am not sure what it means to imagine Imagine I can talk about lots of things I found out and listen to what others say in response and explain how these responses will or will not change my thinking and generalise about what I have found out from dialogue with others I can talk about lots of things I found out and listen to what others say in response and explain how these responses will or will not change my thinking I can talk about lots of things I found out and listen to what others say in response I can talk about I few things I found out I cannot share what I have found out Dialogue I can use a wide range of questions, ‘skinny’ and ‘deep’ to get and connect information. I reflect upon evaluate the effectiveness of the questions I use I can use a wide range of questions, ‘skinny’ and ‘deep’ to get and connect information. I can ask a ‘skinny’ question to ‘get’ information I can ask a ‘skinny’ question I cannot ask a question on my own Question Understands reflection will help learning. Uses it continuously across a range of situations to advance understandings and learning I know reflection is an important and helpful part of the learning process. I can talk about when, what and how I reflect. I am starting to reflect on my learning with support or prompts e.g. question starters What am I learning? How am I going? I cannot reflect and am unsure of what it means. Reflect The HUB – Moving ‘knowing something to understanding it’ I use the hub to ‘make meaning’ and ‘make sense’ of new ideas, knowledge and facts
