Structural Learning is a teaching method that helps pupils
organise their ideas and think critically about lesson content. Find
out how this strategy can enhance outcomes for your learners.
Answer: At its essence, learning involves organising and connecting new information into meaningful mental structures (schemas). This innovative concept makes the hidden cognitive world of thinking visible and accessible for everyone.
Help children understand what learning looks like and how to make it happen more effectively.
Get your learners asking more questions and taking on new perspectives.
Help your students make connections and generate new ideas.
Show your pupils how to organise information for better understanding and retrieval.

"Engagement levels and marks in the longer written responses have both improved."
"‘An amazingly effective and flexible process being grasped by schools for its genius and simplicity’."
"Results clearly show a higher percentage of childrens progress being recorded as 'Better Than Expected'."
Over the last year we have been implementing Structural Learning in Schools around the world.
The early results are very positive and we have learnt a lot about where this new tool adds the most value.
Teachers love the flexibility and the engagement they get from their students.
On the 1st March 2014 I suffered a brain haemorrhage. This event was to change the direction I wanted my life to take. The immediate consequences were quite severe and after a spell in hospital it was time to return home. Cognitions I had taken for granted like problem solving and planning had been vastly affected. This tool started life as a rehabilitation aid, I quickly saw the potential for broader scaffolding processes.
This project puts the process of learning under the microscope and gives teachers the tools they need to embrace educational evidence. Our students will need to fulfill their potential in an increasingly complex world.
