Resources

The online community has generously provided an enormous amount of resources for teachers to use. Below is a curated list of resources that are in line with principles of cognitive science. In general, you will see features like:

  • Extensive practice
  • Worked examples
  • Guided practice
  • Model answers
  • Detailed explanations
  • Goal free activities

Submission

If you have a resource that you would like added to this site, please do get in touch at cogscisci@gmail.com. In order to maintain quality, we are quite rigorous in our curation and selection process, but please see this as an opportunity: we will give you feedback and try to work with you in optimising and improving resources. It is our goal to increase the amount of high quality free content available to teachers, so resource will be rejected without clear guidance on how it could be improved to the point at which we could share it.
