Getting revision right is critical for students and teachers, allowing cohorts to show how much they have developed over a course of time. The pressure of getting into college, university, apprenticeships, jobs, or even gaining notable end-of-primary grades is extensive, so supporting students to achieve or exceed targets is a requisite of being a modern day teacher.
Following another popular UKEdChat poll, the discussion for this session will focus on strategies that best work when supporting students revising for their exams, no matter what form these assessments take.
In particular, the session will ask:
- What are the best revision strategies that you use with students?
- How do you teach students to revise?
- In your opinion, which revision strategies don’t work, and why?
- Using technology for revision: yay or nay? Why?
- Are there some revision strategies better suited to certain subjects/ages?
- Please share your top revision resource.
