How to Use a Knowledge Organiser

To be completed by: Tue 16 Oct 2018

Time: -Tue 16 Oct 2018 | Venue:

We are pleased to announce that our first Research Roadshow event of the year will be held at Grange Technology College and focus on the evidence informed principles for the effective use of Knowledge Organisers.

Knowledge Organisers are becoming increasingly popular in schools. They offer many benefits and we think they can be a hugely effective tool. But there are inherent dangers in the use of Knowledge Organisers. When they are poorly designed, when teachers and students don’t know how to use them effectively and when there is no real plan for effective implementation, they are not effective at all.

Mark Miller, Head of Bradford Research School, will explore the following ideas:

  • The purpose: what is the point of a knowledge organiser?

  • The content: what should be included and how should it be presented?

  • The pedagogy: how can knowledge organisers become a practical tool used effectively by teachers and students?

  • Implementation: how can you ensure Knowledge Organisers are implemented effectively in your context?
