Our Independent Learning Skills

The Independent Learning Skill for after February half term is Resourcefulness.  This is being ready, willing and able to learn in different ways – using both internal and external resources effectively, calling on different ways of learning as appropriate.

  • Recognises how to get help from a range of sources
  • Can apply reasons by comparing and contrasting situations
  • Can question effectively
  • Can use initiative in a  range of situations
  • Can motivate self and sustain the motivation
  • Chooses a variety of techniques to collect and organise information
  • Can discover and make connections through play and experimentation
  • Tries alternative or different approaches

Resourcefulness is made up of:

Questioning—Asking questions of yourself and others. Being curious and playful with   ideas – delving beneath the surface of things

Making Links—Seeing connections between disparate events and experiences – building patterns –weaving a web of understanding

Imagining—Using your imagination and intuition to put yourself through new experiences or to explore possibilities.  Wandering ‘what if…?’

Reasoning—Calling up your logical and rational skills to work things out methodically and rigorously; constructing good arguments, and spotting the flaws in others.

Capitalising—Drawing on the full range of resources from the wider world – other people, books, the internet, past experience, future opportunities…
