Webinar on Visible Thinking in a Differentiated Learning Space

Tarryn McLaren’s webinar on Visible Thinking in a Differentiated Learning Space was phenomenal. Tarryn’s passion for cognitive education was extremely evident as she highlighted thinking skills, which support and extend the academic performance and holistic development of learners. Her practical ideas and suggestions were invaluable and will ensure that more learners can become increasingly effective and independent. Tarryn willingly shared her presentation and resources with the attendees. Reference Materials Authors and Useful Websites that are really good also formed part of the pack that attendees received.
