The London Grid for Learning

Look, Think, Do brings together a range of editable, visual materials created by staff and pupils in London schools to support primary-aged children.

The London Grid for Learning provides high-quality content to all schools with an LGfL connection (97% of London schools), including mainstream resources that cater for pupils with SEND, as well as those designed specifically to support particular areas of need. As part of this commitment, Look, Think, Do launched in November 2014 http://www.ltd.lgfl.net

Look, Think, Do brings together a range of editable, visual materials created by staff and pupils in London schools to support primary-aged children. Children with social communication difficulties frequently need to be explicitly taught what is happening and what they can choose to do in many situations. It is important that they are shown how to adapt what they do depending on how the situation could change, rather than stick with a rigid thinking and behaviour. These resources facilitate this social development by using reduced language, visual support and images, structure and small steps, a positive focus, and, when appropriate, choice.

The photo-based, visual resource is divided into four key sections: Learning to Play; Learning to Say; Learning to Change; Learning to Help Myself. Editable storyboards bring difficult situations to life in a non-threatening manner and enable pupils to discuss solutions and strategies, and alternative and ideal endings. The resource is expected to become an invaluable tool for learning effective social interaction, not just for students with SEND, but across the ability spectrum.
