Using Cognitive Load Theory to Teach and Improve Numeracy
In this webinar we will bring the implications of CLT to life by discussing the importance of CLT within a whole school approach to teaching numeracy.
As schools continually feel the pressure to improve pupil outcomes in maths, Cognitive Load Theory (CLT) is fast becoming a well-known approach to raising standards in teaching and learning. Dylan Wiliam, internationally recognised leader in formative assessment, has described CLT as ‘the single most important thing for teachers to know’. In this webinar, Ben Harding, a former primary school headteacher, will bring the implications of CLT to life. By discussing the importance of CLT within a whole school approach to teaching numeracy, Ben will explain the benefits of CLT and how it can strengthen and enhance school maths curriculums.
