Why a Knowledge Organiser?

  • A knowledge organiser (KO) sets out the important, useful and powerful knowledge on a topic on a single/double page.
  • Each of your exam board's set products have an Edusites printable knowledge organiser for your convenience.
  • Each knowledge organiser has sections for the specified areas of the Theoretical Framework and Contexts specified by your exam board for each product.
  • This scaffolding approach offers students pointers when working with the set product to identify the important information to memorise.
  • These are 'Smart' Organisers designed specifically to suit the study requirements of each media product - In-Depth, Targeted, Comparative or Explicit.
