Building learning power (BLP) is exactly what it suggests. It is about helping people become better learners, both in school and out. By creating a climate that cultivates positive learning habits and attitudes, we enable young people to face difficulty and uncertainty calmy, confidently and creatively.
Learners who are more confident of their own abilities, learn faster and learn better. They concentrate more, think harder and find learning more enjoyable. Being an effective learner means knowing what is worth learning, what you are good or not so good at learning, who can help, how to face confusion without getting upset and what is the best learning tool for the job at hand.
At Two Mile Hill School we believe in giving our young people these skills, teaching how to learn alongside the necessary academic, physical and social skills. We already have many of the principles of BLP embedded in our practice at Two Mile Hill, but with our robot we aim to make these elements more explicit so that children can articulate and recognise learning skills for themselves.
