Higher order cognition

Module Overview

Originated by: Dr Dimitar Georgiov

Higher order cognition is “the mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience, and the senses”.

It encompasses processes such as attention, the formation of knowledge, memory and working memory, judgment and evaluation, reasoning and “computation”, problem solving and decision making, comprehension and production of language. Cognitive processes use existing knowledge and generate new knowledge.

This module looks at higher order cognition from the perspective of KS2 to KS% and includes dedicated resources for this age group spectrum.

We will explore

  • Cognition and mind
  • Higher order theory in practise
  • Critical thinking
  • Problem solving
  • Everyday problems and philosophical problems

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plans – KS2 to KS5
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Observation of thoughts
  • Teacher assessment
  • Class activities

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
