Grounded in research. Shaped by experience.
TailoredPractice is grounded in educational research and shaped by classroom experiences in numerous settings across different ages. Together with schools, we connect the dots between relationships, memory and mindset to create a culture and climate that maximises learning for all – educators and the young people we support.
BELONGING | NORMS | EXPECTATIONS
BIAS | CULTURE
COGNITIVE LOAD | RETENTION
KNOWLEDGE | LEARNING STRATEGIES
SELF-BELIEF | METACOGNITION
FEEDBACK | CLASSROOM TALK
Build positive relationships by creating a sense of belonging, establishing norms and high expectations; and breaking down barriers like unconsious bias.
Maximise memory by managing cognitive load, using effective learning strategies, planning for long term retention and application of knowledge.
Cultivate learning mindsets by building self-belief; developing metacognitive skills; and using feedback, goal setting and classroom talk effectively.
Making it Stick:
Students learn about the science of learning
During form time, secondary school students participate in weekly sessions led by their tutors. They explore the science of how we learn and how to use different strategies to learn more effectively over the long term. Understanding memory is not just for teachers!
