I will describe my work as a primary teacher and co-author of “Powering Up Children”, and illustrate the kinds of changes that I have made to my practice over the last few years to get the children to take more confident responsibility for planning, trouble-shooting and evaluating their own learning. Some of these ‘tweaks’ include integrating self-reflection and feedback, capitalising on the learning environment to boost learning power, and unpicking and teaching collaboration skills. I will give participants a flavour of the LPA, and respond honestly to questions about the ups and downs, and what I have learned so far.
Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
