Professor Guy Claxton'sVisit to New Zealand




Last week Learning Network NZ had the pleasure of bringing Professor Guy Claxton back to NZ in order to enable you as teachers the chance to review how you can effectively "raise achievement & build character" within your busy classroom environment.

By all accounts it was  a successful tour, apart from poor Guy having a ghastly flu.  Each venue was at full capacity, all the attendee's that I had the pleasure of coming  into contact with, really enjoyed the intensity of the day and felt inspired to be there.  

The content  Guy shared and projected was both powerful and practical, enabling the attendee's to take away some know how and keep sake strategies to apply within the busy classroom/school environment.  

Essentially Guy enabled school practitioners to gain more confidence and know how on how to apply "Building Learning Power" more successfully within their individual environment!

BUILDING LEARNING POWERED CLASSROOM 

As Guy suggests, this can be gained by implementing gradual, cumulative adjustments within the class around some of the following key shifts:
The language used within the classroom, 
Timetable adjustments
Self-review
Implementing "a coaching culture"
Investing in teaching methods
                                              Cumulatively gaining long term results!
