Looking for generic tools to develop thinking and AfL that will work across the curriculum and Key Stages? Then NGfL Cymru has just what you need.
We’ve had great fun creating a bank of generic thinking tools that can be used to help develop meta-cognition. Many of our tools complement the Welsh Assembly’s Developing Thinking and Assessment for learning document (for example this living graph is a flash based resource that can be edited and saved to create a bespoke activity for your class).
Others have evolved from projects we have been involved in with teachers across Wales, looking at the most effective ways to enhance teaching and learning (like this activity called ‘It’s your choice’ – another flash based resource than can be edited and saved).
Through our Good Practice area you can now access, in both English and Welsh, these ready to use ideas and adaptable templates. Initially, you will be able to view a few examples, but once you’ve become a registered user you will be able to access the entire range of resources. Registration is free, will only take a couple of minutes and can be accessed by clicking on ‘My NGfL Cymru’.
Why not take the opportunity of having an NGfL Cymru Field Development Officer visit your school to help you get the best out of these tools? If you wish to arrange a visit please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 029 2026 5177
