Time and study skills

Tim Frederick's been looking into why his students aren't reaching their full potential. The reason: a lack of study skills. I've always felt that we ram the meta-cognition thing down students' throats in Scotland - the words 'meta cognition' even made it into my last post. It all comes down to being organised and using one's time wisely. Working smarter, not harder. So, social software tools aside, what are the basic skills required for building study skills?

I recommended the two that I like most: Kelso High School's school website's advice and the BBC's huge Onion Street site. Do you have any other suggestions? A call to all scot-edu-bloggers out there!

Module Masterclass

Do you worry that your school or district could better harness its people, digital technology or physical space? Do you want some actionable inspiration, a mentor for a learning journey with your staff?

In a keynote or masterclass we can give them concrete ideas based on experience, enthusiasm fired by a vision of what can be, and backup before and after to make it happen for them.
