“You don’t learn because youre engaged. Youre engaged because youre learning.”
The concept of hexagonal learning is simple. It is the exploration of, and connecting of themes around a particular topic using keywords written on… hexagons. Why hexagons? Well they have six sides, fit nicely together and so are great for making connections.
There are already a number of fantastic educators out there, Tait Coles, Chris Harte and David Didau, all using this simple and very effective technique to develop student understanding and more importantly, to deepen their students thinking skills too. Really? Hexagons? Deepening thinking skills?
