About the Webinar

As schools continually feel the pressure to improve pupil outcomes in maths, Cognitive Load Theory (CLT) is fast becoming a well-known approach to raising standards in teaching and learning. Dylan Wiliam, internationally recognised leader in formative assessment, has described CLT as ‘the single most important thing for teachers to know’. In this webinar, Ben Harding, a former primary school headteacher, will bring the implications of CLT to life. Discussing the importance of CLT within a whole school approach to teaching numeracy, Ben will explain the benefits of CLT and how it can strengthen and enhance school maths curriculums.

Learning Outcomes

  • The implications of CLT as an integral part of a whole school approach to teaching numeracy

  • The importance of CLT to individual teachers and school leaders

  • How CLT can help ensure children acquire, store and use the core knowledge of the primary mathematics curriculum

  • Demystifying good practice and expose illogical approaches that have recently crept into UK classrooms

Using Cognitive load theory to teach and improve numeracy

This webinar showed me how the working memory of our brains are very limited and that the brain can retrieve information from previous learning. I will make me think when working with a group of children in Maths and supporting my teacher.

Clearly explained CLT

Very informative in relation to making learning stick, the CLT ideas were broken down into practical advice and models. It's given me lots to think about and implement building on current practice.
