Cognitive Development and Reading: Introduction to Let's Think in English (Research and Pedagogy)
Limited Capacity filling up

Let’s Think in English (LTE) is a teaching programme created since 2009 to help young people develop the reasoning skills needed for success in English. LTE is based on 30 years’ research at King’s College London which shows that structured development of pupils’ cognitive skills raises their attainment. 

LTE draws on research by Piaget and Vygotsky that young people learn best when exploring ideas together. The lessons are based on structured challenge and include the development of understanding through discussion problem-solving and structured reflection.
Join Michael Walsh, co-developer of LTE, in this workshop, to explore the research and pedagogy that underpins the programme. The workshop will be interactive with participants sampling LTE lessons.

Limited Capacity seats available

All sessions will provide an introduction to key ideas, concepts, actors and terms across these topics. This will be accompanied by collaborative activities and small group discussions to explore more in depth your own opinions, experience and ideas around how to bring this back to your classrooms and students. While many of the ideas apply broadly to education at all levels, specific activities and examples will be focused on a secondary school level. 

AM 1
Framing


What do we want from education?
We’ll start with a brief overview of the broader discourses happening right now in education such as the SDGs, 4th Industrial Revolution, Socio-emotional learning/Life Skills, 21st century skills…There are many conversations, critiques and ideas about the direction education should be moving. We will get a sense of these discussions and place our conversation within this landscape.


What does this mean for the future of learning? 
We will start to talk about how to imagine a good education, what skills we want to develop in students, how can quality education and learning be assessed in this context and what is the purpose of educating. These are important starting points to thinking about what the future of learning means in the classroom. 

Break


AM 2

Big ideas in the classroom

What does this mean for teachers?
While this seems like a great deal of new information, possibilities and aspirations, we’ll dive into some key areas that teachers can focus on to begin to translate some of these ideas into student learning in concrete ways. The main areas of focus will be: communication & collaboration, digital skills, global citizenship, and resilience & adaptability.

LTE is based on 30 years’ research at King’s College London which shows that structured development of pupils’ cognitive skills raises their attainment. 

LTE draws on research by Piaget and Vygotsky that young people learn best when exploring ideas together. However, research suggest pupils need explicit training to work effectively in groups and develop exploratory talk. This workshop will review the research behind group work and dialogic talk, illustrate with examples from classrooms and consider how LTE lessons support development. . The workshop will be interactive with participants sampling LTE lessons.

Audience: Interest in teaching and learning, dialogic teaching, and group work. While lessons explored use text as a stimuli the pedagogy is applicable to many subject areas and ages.
