3. An activity we want you to undertake before the training session

The very best way to help your learning in the session is for you to look at your school now with a Learning Power mindset. By doing this you will begin to connect practically with what learning power is all about.

  • Download A Learning Culture Review [PDF]
    • This tool is a what we call a ‘Learning Amble’. It concerns the learning culture in classrooms
    • Take a purposeful stroll around your school with the Learning Amble and note down what you see, hear and feel. Score your findings as suggested in the tool
    • Please bring the completed tool with you to the training session together with three questions your amble has raised for you.
