Understanding Higher Order Thinking Skills is crucial for helping young minds develop healthily. Knowing what questions to ask children, and when, can mean the world to their mental health.

Learners will review Bloom’s Taxonomy to see how it is used to process information. They will gain an understanding of how we process information, retain it and then utilise it. Learning styles will be explained in detail.
