About this Direct Impact Session

Given that dialogue is a curriculum requirement and research indicates its effectiveness for learning, why does teacher talk still dominate the classroom? The reality is that implementing a dialogue-centred approach that ensures all students are fully engaged in deeper levels of thinking, exchanging ideas and meaning making is much simpler in theory than it is in practice. This direct impact session addresses these issues with practical strategies for teaching thinking skills, designing group activities and promoting a collaborative classroom environment that can be used across learning areas and year levels.

Learning outcomes

  • Gain confidence in facilitating strong group dialogue among students.
  • Understand the development and applications of metacognition.
  • Learn how to teach various thinking skills, including critical, creative and ethical thinking.
  • Embed practical strategies for teaching critical thinking skills into everyday classwork.
