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

School leaders and innovators struggle to make the most of educators' and students' potential. My team at NoTosh cut the time and cost of making significant change in physical spaces, digital and curricular innovation programmes. We work long term to help make that change last, even as educators come and go.
