Thinking Matters Training
During the phase one of the Thinking Matters Training, the
staff participated in small group discussions, thinking
activities and teaching methodology that can be applied to
develop a culture of thinking. They had also completed
additional reading on topics related to the brain such as
neuroplasticity, brain operating modes and deliberate practice.
The Drive Team contributed to the revision of the Vision
statement and had applied the De Bono Thinking Hats to a
reflection sheet that evaluates the learning that is currently
taking place within the school.
Phase two of the Thinking Matters Training will commence
towards the end of Term One and will focus on developing
metacognition using thinking processes and visual tools.
