Personalised Learning at Primary - Talk to Learn

Description

At South Milford Community Primary School in North Yorkshire, Year 6 teacher Lesley Dennon encourages talking in class by using a technique called "dialogic talk".

The technique, which has been pioneered by Lesley over the last six years, teaches pupils that all opinions are valid, and demonstrates the importance of pupil-to-pupil dialogue in personalised learning.

In this programme, Lesley encourages her class to suggest plot developments and alternative endings during a discussion of the early twentieth century poem, The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes.

A new teacher then works with dialogic learning for the first time and examines how the technique can be developed by video recording the pupils and playing it back in class to stimulate more discussion.
