The UK is risking neglecting youngsters’ hidden scientific talent according to a new study from
According to our analysis, tens of thousands of highly able children are failing to get good science GCSEs because their talents are masked by poor verbal skills. The failing means the country is potentially squandering a large, untapped reserve of young scientists and engineers.
Our study estimates that 4% of the school population, or 30,000 in each year group in the UK, are high spatial learners with poor verbal reasoning skills who significantly underperform in both humanities and science subjects at exam time.
In this webinar, Sarah Haythornthwaite from GL Assessment will compare the exam results for different types of learners and examine the reasons these students are being overlooked, as well as discussing the links with spatial thinkers and STEM subjects, and how teachers can help spatial learners in the classroom.
Asking Sarah your questions will be @TeacherToolkit - the UK’s most followed teacher on Twitter.
