Description Lev Vygotsky revolutionised understanding of child development and learning. He wrote about “learning through play”, “thinking out loud”, “scaffolding learning”, “internalisation”, “mastery” and the “zone of proximal development”. This day is oh-so-very-much-more than yet another visit to the land of “Smart Targets”, “Assessment 4 Learning” and “Steps 2 Success”. Come along and be (re)inspired by Vygotsky!

Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

A deeper understanding of each of the key concepts advanced by Vygotsky as an explanation for the way humans learn. Consideration of the implications for schooliong in general and classroom practise in particular.

Evidence underpinning this approach
