Memorable learning.

Think back to school and remember  a time when you learnt something that you still remember  today. What were you doing?

Well,  I can bet you it involved watching and listening (a little) but there was predominately a series of your own practical trails and errors, with some help here and there, until finally, ‘ah ha! You got it!’

Then why do all the Govian suits in their grey tower seem to forget what we all intuitively know: that memorable learning is active with a  practical content.

The academicisation of the new curriculum will set learning back a great deal.

    The suits as you call them, love academicisation, because it makes teaching more measurable, more like a process and so more easily controlled. It is much harder to monitor, practical content.
