`Full On Learning` provides a blueprint for educators in all settings to construct the ideal conditions for effective learners to grow and develop. This is a no-compromise approach to the architecture of learning, creating quality learning experiences that foster a love of learning. The start point is your end-point: the learner. What kind of learner do you want to develop? What are the characteristics of an effective learner and how can we teach to support the development of these characteristics? If future employers are looking for people who can solve problems, think creatively and be innovative, what can we do, as part of our current curriculum provision to enable students to deliberately practise this skill? If being intelligent is not, in fact, measured by your IQ score, and has far more to do with the ability to apply higher order thinking to unfamiliar contexts and create new solutions to existing problems, then what learning challenges can we design for Year 9 on a sunny Wednesday afternoon that will allow them to develop the emotional and intellectual resilience required to be able to do this? Full On Learning offers a range of tried & tested practical suggestions and ideas to construct the ideal conditions for the characteristics of effective learners to flourish.

Product Description


Zoe Elder's book makes a compelling case for teachers' and students' effortful engagement in the many processes of learning, and she sure walks the talk: this book exudes hundreds of hours of thought, reflection, planning, redrafting and reorganising, and it's all the better for it. The author clearly has a relentless curiosity (more talk-walking), and a remarkable capacity to synthesise wide reading at the frontiers of educational theory in a format which is attractive, accessible and very readable - without once talking down to her reader. On the contrary, potential readers of this valuable addition to the canon of classroom praxis had better be prepared to step up. If they do, they will find much to intrigue, provoke and feed their appetite for educational excellence, and they will take away practical strategies for translating often subtle insights into the rich melee of the classroom. --Barry J Hymer, Professor of psychology in education, University of Cumbria

`Full On Learning` sits at that intersection where the craft of teaching meets the science of learning. Packed with practical ideas, it proves what Zoë expounds: that effective teaching is fundamentally a creative activity which focuses relentlessly on teasing out the capacity and potential of each student. Defining an architecture, creating with the building blocks, it will not only transform classrooms but will take teaching and learning experiences to another level. --Sir John Jones. Writer, presenter, educational consultant

This very special book is a beautifully produced treatise on learning. Each page is a pleasure, with something new to learn and explore. It reminds me of when I first got my iPad, it was so full of interesting things I took it everywhere and played with it endlessly, constantly surprising myself with its potential. Same with Zoe`s book - there is so much in it that I know it will be filled with post it notes and bookmarks on every teacher`s bookshelf. This book really does cover everything you need to know about learning for the 21st century. The author`s voice is consistently heard throughout the book, demanding that we consider the importance of the learners owning their experiences and being fully engaged to reach their amazing potential. This book also practises what it preaches, as it is fun and engaging and makes you think in different ways. It also sets up very useful checklists and informative links to make it an extremely practical read too. I haven`t read a better book that sums up all the essentials for outstanding learning in such an engaging format that will make it one of my most treasured tomes, lovingly taken everywhere and only lent to trusted friends. Teacher, buy this book! --Jackie Beere OBE, Author, trainer and educationalist

5.0 out of 5 stars Treats You Like A Professional 31 Mar 2014
This'll inspire and energize, and may just recharge you if you've lost your way a bit. A ‘done with’ not a ‘done to’ resource. If you’re after a series of photocopiable lesson plans, look elsewhere; if you want a guru to make all your classroom challenges go away, it’s the next shelf down. But if you want to make learning more relevant using a clear and visual text, to explore the principles behind effective teaching and make them you own, get this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for Educators 20 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is beautiful as it is useful. Bursting with ideas, each chapter requires deep thought and a bagful of notes to track the great ideas. Rarely in educational literature has an author spanned so much breath of pedagogy and ideas with so much precision and skill. A must buy.

I don't often write reviews of purchases, in fact, I believe this is my first one, however I felt compelled to write about 'Full on learning' by Zoe Elder.

What I love about this book is that it is cram packed full of sound teaching and learning ideas that you can take straight in to the classroom. It pulls everything together, makes everything coherent giving great examples too, and gives you the references to go off and research/read more in the areas you're particularly interested in.

Highly recommended.
