propedagogy - Building Learning Power

Professor Claxton first introduced the idea of learning power in his 1999 book Wise Up: The challenge of Lifelong Learning.

In 2002 came Building Learning Power, a book which set out to be a practical guide for teachers.

The new book The Learning Powered School is co-authored by Professor Guy Claxton, together with Maryl Chambers, Graham Powell and Bill Lucas. It explores how the ideas have developed since the programme's launch.
