Learning Cycle at Activate Learning

An introduction to the learning cycle.

Big image
The learning cycle is a model of learning that can be used to plan individual lessons or workshops, weeks of learning and longer projects of learning over months. The beauty of a cycle is that you can facilitate some present, apply, recall & review and then repeat as required during a lesson or perhaps over a series of lessons. Although it provides structure to learning, you must use your professional judgement to consider how best it can be used to suit your learners and the topic.
