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?
