The LALATAT Web Portals consists of 300 unique thinking and learning skills exercises.
These exercises have been designed to enable students to practice and improve all of the most important skills of effective thinking and learning.
LALATAT will not only help students succeed at school, but these skills are also vital for university, career training, self-employment and all future occupations any student might choose to pursue.

Lance G. King is an internationally recognised author of six books on the skills of thinking and learning, the creator of the Art of Learning programme, and a specialist in the direct teaching of 21st Century Skills.

Within the International Baccalaureate Organisation he designed and developed the Approaches to Learning (ATL) framework for both the MYP and DP programmes.

The material from all of Lance’s books, plus many new exercises, make up this LALATAT platform.

“Over the last few years Lance King has had a significant influence on the curriculum development of the IB’s programmes. First with the IBCC then most recently with the Middle Years Programme and now with the Diploma Programme. His ideas around the development of resilience and the use of learning-skills focused, guided inquiry learning in the classroom have been potentially transformative and have helped shape the direction of all of these programmes. By the time all his present work is released his ideas will be influencing the learning of up to 750,000 students in 3500 schools in 120 countries.”
