We have been working on the process of ‘embedding learning over time’ as a department wide strategy for ensuring students are learning the knowledge required for the exams, whilst allowing the working memory to be freed up to focus on the task at hand. The idea is if they have learnt a certain amount of knowledge and have this embedded in their long term memory then this will allow the working memory to be free of cognitive overload, meaning that students are holding too much in their working memory and not fully being able to engage in the task in front of them. @DaveG5478 blogged about the department strategy here: https://tlideasblog.wordpress.com/2017/10/23/embedding-learning-over-time-our-approach/ on embedding learning over time and hopefully this detailed look at knowledge organisers will complement this blog.
Therefore, as part of this strategy, we have introduced into all year groups Knowledge Organisers, which is all well and good in itself, however I’m/we’re not interested in just introducing a piece of paper to all teachers and seeing this as a panacea for good results. In order for the knowledge organisers to work, they have to be a useful and workable tool that complements the teaching that already exists in the department. Therefore, when deciding the core components of the Knowledge Organisers, we gathered as a faculty in gained time and looked at what we felt were core elements of knowledge that would benefit students to have automatically at their fingertips ready to apply. As you can see from the Romeo and Juliet example: Romeo & Juliet KO this has meant splitting the knowledge we want students to learn into sections.

If you want to let other teachers know about your interest in creating Knowledge Organisers, after you have added a link to your KO you can add a description of it in the box under the link. Alternatively you can create a post here or in another section of the forum on this website.
Feel free to promote what you do, or engage in discussion.
Let's share the knowledge.

Have you created a Knowledge Organiser and uploaded it somewhere?
Why not add a link to it on this website so that other teachers can find it easily.
Have you found a great Knowledge Organiser on a public website? Again, why not link to it here.
Here is how to add a link.
Alternatively, you can just let us know about the KO by replying to this post.
You need one credit per download. Your profile shows how many credits you have. Contributing in any way gives you more credits.
Hello everyone, giving this a try. Not sure about how many credits you would need to start downloading files? a bit confused :-)

When you become a member of Knowledge Organisers (free), you have the option of adding a marker showing your location.
This appears on our Member Map.
It is optional to add a marker. You can edit your marker position or remove it at any time.
Why not add your location marker, or see if there are any other Knowledge Organiser members located near you.
You can see a List of Members Here.
Welcome Anthos. It's probably a lot nicer where you are weather wise than here in Bristol UK. Currently raining. Thanks for adding your marker to the member map. You are the first on the map from Australia. Have a good day.
