    UKEdPodcast - Episode 37 - High Impact Revision

    UKEdPodcast - Episode 37 - High Impact Revision

    A learner’s work is never done… Continually refreshing and revisiting one’s toolbox of skills and knowledge is a vital part of the learning process and allows us to build on solid foundations.
    Yet, revision can often have negative connotations where students adopt a hermit-like existence as they cram for an exam, which they can then forget about. As educators we should reclaim revision to be an integrated part of lessons, which connect past lessons with ideas that are being learnt today.
    Hosted by Martin Burrett, this episode features the audio from the #UKEdChat After Hours webinar session, with guests @dnleslie & @ScienceTeachTw1
