Hooks into learning
How can we get Declan to care about Tudor houses or Imogen to appreciate writing?
What’s the best way to build ‘botheredness’ and how can we help our children emotionally engage in the work we need them to do?
These are some of the questions Hywel Roberts will be answering during this very special event at the Black Country Living Museum.
With 16 years teaching background, he shares experiences of enticing children into learning. Join him as he reports on his discoveries from primary classrooms and mainstream and SEN schools.
‘Imagineering’ is what Hywel likes to do prior to the engineering of planning and delivery. It’s that reverie time where teachers think about what they’d like to teach and when staff are at their most creative and imaginative.
This is where Hywel likes to step in and wrap humanity around a cold, dead curriculum. Hywel brings lessons to life. It’s a skill, that every teacher posses but one that is being slowly eroded.
It’s time to reclaim that professional imagination.
Hywel’s ‘buzzing’ pedagogy adheres to a passionate belief where professional responsibility means connecting with children and making their learning relevant. As a consequence they become empowered and able to see and understand the real world. Join Hywel as he delivers his brilliantly creative ideas which are delivered with infectious enthusiasm at this not to be missed event.
