How to revise

As a school we want to support students and make sure they are using study strategies to support their revision, that work – based on educational research.

To do this, we are working with a group of cognitive psychologists from the USA, based in the University of Massachusetts, called ‘The Learning Scientists’ .  They suggest six evidence  informed approaches to studying, that can help students to revise:

Elaboration – explaining ideas in detail
Retrieval practice – practice ‘remembering’ what they have been taught
Spaced practice – spacing out your studying over time.
Dual coding – combining pictures and words to help you remember things.
Interleaving – switching between the topics that you study.
Concrete examples – using specific examples to understand abstract ideas.

Students and parents can download a booklet to give them more information about each strategy:
