Connected Learning - schools

Impact on Learners

Connected Learning is all about starting conversations that allow learners to connect with the spaces within which they learn. 

We have developed this approach over many years of working in schools, with 1000's of children and adults already being impacted. 

We recognise that learning is complex. Our model responds to these complexities by engaging the learner in shaping their learning experiences. By 'connecting' the different dimensions that shape and motive both the learning environment and the individual - a shared learning community can be created. Embracing complexity to maximise opportunities. 

Designed for schools, this model is now evolving as we look at its impact within the home.

Testimonials from Schools

What it means for the children, is that they now have the ability to apply and even synthesise ways of implementing the learning attributes (metacognitive tools) in all facets of their learning and socialisation.

Ducan Robers, Head of Little Green

Equipping kids have breathed new life into our school. We are on the journey for giving them the skills to navigate life, not a text book. The bespoke, knowledgeable, research-based approach of Equipping Kids allows us to do this; to find solutions but most importantly all be ourselves. There is no 'lunchbox' of tricks, just knowledgeable, passionate professionals who want to maximize the opportunities for every child to make a difference.

Philip Grey, Principal, Hertfordshire

The impact has transformed the adults in school to see themselves as partners in learning rather than learning that is something that is done to children

Hannah Trickett, Head, Maple Cross

The methods used by equipping kids to gather tangible qualitative data and make visible the learning process have enabled staff and governors to value priorities that are 'hard to evidence' and as a result maintain sustained focus on longer term changes to ethos and culture in the school, such as a focus on developing growth mindsets and developing pupils as learners.
