Extended abstract - over knowledge and into practice.

Anna Przybyło


According to Solo taxonomy (after Biggs and Collis 1982) there are a few stages of learning: Prestructural, Unistructural, Multistructural, Relational and Extended abstract. At school, we usually get only to Relational way of getting knowledge. This means that we teach kids how to compare, contrast, classify and relate. Students can think creatively and create only if they are let to do so. How can we change written tests into practical knowledge, and how to learn from mistakes? I invite you to my presentation.


I have been working as an English Teacher since 2005. Since 2015 I am cooperating with KIRE leading courses for post-graduate students in Children's Literature and Methodology of Teaching English to Young Learners. Moreover, I am the Head of Teachers at Open Future International School in Kraków, where I also teach English and Social Studies (in English). Furthermore, I have started my PHD Studies connected with Pedagogy.
