The essence of transformed education

Transformed education - getting much higher achievement for the same teaching input (or maybe even a little less teaching) - is really very simple. It happens when schools get pupils to engage much more strongly in learning, using time in a more concentrated way in class and committing more of their own time to things that support their learning.

How schools get this to happen is a little more complicated. It requires a ‘virtuous spiral of improvement’ to be created, where the school generates amongst all the pupils a much more positive attitude to school and learning. Technology is the key enabler but the change in attitude comes about because of how pupils view their learning capabilities and achievements.

See the Naace guidance for schools engaging with the 3rd Millennium Learning Award for more on this.
