Exploring Key Competencies through BLP


Building Learning Power - Guy Claxton
Building learning power is my main inspiration for pedagogy development this year. 
 I believe that this addresses the HOW of learning rather than focusing on the WHAT 
of learning.  I believe that teaching improved attitude towards learning and strategies 
for achieving true learning will be of greater benefit to our students than just aiming 
for national standards.  
Building Learning Power (BLP) splits learning into 4 areas Resilience, Reciprocity,
 Reflectiveness, Resourcefulness - which are further broken into 17 attributes of an 
effective learner.
