Product Description

Authors: Brin Best, Anthony Blake and John Varney

Making Meaning provides unique guidance for teachers and other professionals in education, equipping them to use many practical and creative thinking methodologies.

It deals with the teaching and use of thinking skills through the perspective of making meaning. It introduces ‘logovisual thinking’ as a generic method of making meaning that:

  • encourages participation in active enquiry, irrespective of preferred learning styles and personalities
  • makes thinking processes more visible and pliable
  • helps learners, teachers and managers deal with complexity and diversity
  • facilitates constructive and creative learning relationships.

For learners, it:

  • activates higher levels of thinking
  • produces understanding through discovery
  • develops social and communication skills in small group and plenary work.

For teachers, it:

  • improves lesson design
  • supports facilitation of higher order thinking
  • gives structure to enquiry and exploration.

For educational managers, it supports:

  • making sense of complex issues
  • articulating purpose and vision
  • developing strategies and plans.

Rich and varied case studies show the range and depth of applications. The 18 exemplars cover various parts of the curriculum, assessment studies and management issues. They also demonstrate making meaning in individual, small group, class and large group settings.

Brin Best, Anthony Blake and John Varney bring together wide experience of teaching, education management and business leadership. Making Meaning demonstrates the route to effective teaching and learning, creativity, enterprise and leadership.

Concluding his foreword Barry Hymer writes: ‘In the 21st century, we are increasingly aware of our need for reflective, connected, multi-disciplinary, collaborative thinking and acting, where learners transcend the simple acceptance of received facts or wisdom, and the vaunting of knowledge over imagination. We are re-discovering that learning is active, not passive. That meaning, like intelligence, like gifts or talents, like connections, like the world, isn’t discovered. It’s made.’

Logovisual have previously supplied whiteboard panels for our London office, so when we needed whiteboards for a room at our head office we got in touch. The end result looks good – many thanks.

ADRIAN SHAH-CUNDY, VOLKER WESSELLS

All looks fantastic thank you!!
The guys were a pleasure to meet and it was all so hassle free.

Commissioned Logovisual to design and install a folding wall in one of our technology rooms. Both our company and the NHS Trust were absolutely delighted with the installation a first for all.

Clear and prompt communication throughout and a very smooth installation process. Nothing was too hard. Highly recommended!

Excellent, high quality product, purchased after wise advice and installed quickly by friendly installers. Perfect product for our meeting room needs.

The board looks great! And I’d like to say your installers were absolutely fantastic, so friendly, organised and cleaned up.

JESS MARTIN, VAYNERMEDIA

Logovisual really understood our brief and made some great suggestions to make our designs come to life. They helped us bring a child’s game from a small tin to a life size piece of experiential, for us to take in to store at John Lewis. Everyone loved it. Thank you guys.

TAMARA SPURWAY, WILD & WOLF

As a product, they really provide a varied functionality to aid in our brainstorming and project works. These mobile whiteboards have really been an excellent investment and are immensely popular with our staff.

SEBASTIAN FRANCIS-JONES, C SPACE

The whole process from start to finish was excellent and the final product was second to none. Highly recommend Logovisual and the team and will be using them again very soon for the next project.

LYNNE BRODA, OXFORD CARTOGRAPHERS

The install was fab the guys were excellent and we all love the wall, so much in fact we are thinking of future projects including them. Once again can’t thank you enough for a great thorough service.

ZOE HARRIS, CBRE GLOBAL INVESTORS

Logovisual had as I believed to be the simplest and hassle free job on the project, install of white boards. They were in and out within 3 hours, a job well done!

THE PROJECT TEAM, OVERBURY PLC

The product itself is superbly built and easy to manoeuvre around with the attached wheels. From the office team’s communication before our event to the delivery team’s installation and pickup I found everyone to be really helpful and very professional going out of their way to meet our deadlines. I would certainly recommend logovisual.

SHAUN O’HARA, SAATCHI & SAATCHI WELLNESS

We were looking for a new “canvas” to share information and encourage joint thinking. The Thinking Wall turned out to be the perfect solution. There’s room to be expansive and for things to have real impact. The service we received right from our first enquiry, to installation (very fast, very painless) has been excellent.

STEPHEN CROWE, SCOTTISH FUNDING COUNCIL

We were pleased with the high level of customer service, our order was dealt with quickly and efficiently and we are thrilled with the finished product. The custom whiteboards that are exactly as we had envisaged them.

STEVE CROSTHWAITE, HOTSPUR PRIMARY SCHOOL

Just wanted to thank you again for your help, had a small amount of feedback from our client: Whiteboards are superb. Even better than expected!
