London school to improve learning strategies

05/11/2013 Joanna
Primary school teachers in a London school are trialling technology to see how it can be used to boost learning. 

Rosendale Primary in south London has been given a grant worth £253,000 in order to carry out research that will see pupils photograph their work and add notes to it using tablets, the BBC reports.

It is hoped the move will encourage youngsters to develop their learning strategies by seeing what works well for them. 

The school's head teacher Kate Atkins said: "Poor learners are often overconfident about the power of their memories and can struggle to find alternative strategies. An emotional reaction is a key part of the learning process."

In order to make the scheme as effective as possible, schoolkids are being asked to reflect on every single piece of work they produce. 

Rosendale is not the only education centre taking place though, as 23 other schools in London, Essex and Manchester are involved.
