WHAT IS A LEARNING CIRCLE?
 
A Learning Circle is a way of encouraging pupils / students to learn independently. The example below, is typical of a Learning Circle. Key information is seen in the outer circle, whilst the inner circle contains instructions and further information.
 

This example has common symbols displayed in the outer circle. Each symbol is numbered. The information / instructions at the centre of the circle, explains what the pupils / students need to do. In this case, they are to describe the meaning of each symbol on the back of the disk. Essential web-links are included on the disk, allowing pupils/students to research answers, using the internet.

The disk can be used for revision purposes at a later date and is ideal for extension work and homework.
