Professor Deborah Eyre
This book provides a framework aimed at helping good schools become world class. Based on research from across cognitive psychology, gifted education and neuro-science, with 30 years of practical experience by educators in over 16 countries, High Performance Learning starts from the following key principles: high performance is an attainable target for everyone; ee can systematically teach pupils how to be ‘intelligent’ and how to succeed in school; and world class schools produce pupils that are intellectually and socially confident, workplace and life-ready with a global outlook and a concern for others.
There are 20 generic characteristics that pupils need to develop if they are to be high performers in cognitive domains (ACPs) and 10 values, attitudes and attributes (VAAs) that develop the wider learner dispositions needed for cognitive and lifetime success.
The author argues that schools can only become world class by fostering a professional community of practice among their educators, and that no quick-fix, governance model, instructional technique or technology can substitute for this.
In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
