Little Miss Teacher is a place where those of us in the classroom can share our ideas, resources and experiences. We can also have a good old moan and share some of those funny little things our children say!

Thinking Skills

The Mind Friendly Learning website, part of Cheshire LEA's site is fantastic for anyone interested in developing their use of thinking skills in the classroom.

It has a wealth of information on why and how we should use processes such as mind-mapping, De Bono's Thinking Hats and Brain Gym, as well as a lot of the theory behind metacognition.

The Mind Friendly Toolkit link is where you will find the lots of practical ideas and downloadable materials and relevant websites.

You can also watch video clips from the Key Note Speakers at The Learning Brain Europe Conference.

Developing Thinking Skills is something many of us are interested in and I find this site to be one of the best resources on the web for anyone wishing to find out more and start immediately. It gives you enough background to know what to do and why you are doing it, without having to plough through endless volumes of research. A great starting point.

Great links Deb. I didn't realise, and neither did my wife who works for Cheshire, realist that they have a MFL website! The Learning Brain Conference was excellent - I was lucky enough to be there. The David Sousa - "How the Brain Learns: Translating Brain Research into Classroom Practice" was fantastic. Didn't thing much of Kegan talks. Great ideas, but he wasn't very exciting to listen to.
