The use of EHoM (featured centrally on the diagram above) has been identified, through research from the Centre for Real-World Learning and The Royal Academy of Engineering as being able to increase fluency in habits of mind such as problem-solving and collaboration; the development of ‘growth mindsets’; improvements in literacy, numeracy and oracy; enhanced self-management skills; plus a better understanding of engineering. We will show progression in the ‘habits’ across the Phases and aim to align these to Gosport Futures (featured externally on the diagram) too.
EHoM are now considered integral to both the effectiveness of the learner and teacher, across a range of subject domains within the MAT and are not considered skills limited to STEM subjects. They help to shape thinking processes and structure problem solving in a range of situations and subjects.
Our engineering STEM Learning Wheel (above) enables thorough application of the EHoM skills within learning and aims to replicate the process used in engineering based careers when designing solutions to a multitude of situations and problems.
