In teachmeet tonight (Thurs 28th Feb 2013) I will be showing a video on Marginal Gains. The video shows Dave Brailsford – Head of GB Cycling and Team Sky and how they have used marginal gains to achieve success and to get the best out of their whole team. It really is amazing the difference a few minute changes can make to performance.
This can be applied easily within a class setting – that marginal gain could be as simple as getting one extra question right which moves a student from a D grade to a C. Quite simply a marginal gain is a small realistic target that a pupil or even a teacher can make.
See the link below that provides details on how a teacher is applying marginal gains in his classroom. Can you make some marginal gains with your students?
