EC:21st Century Teaching and Learning – What & how should we be teaching and learning?
June 22, 2021 @ 9:00 AM - June 22, 2021 @ 4:00 PM
Recent years have seen an explosion of scientific evidence showing that there is a different way to learn, lead and live, available to us all. When people take a limitless approach to learning – in mathematics and in life – different pathways open up, leading to higher, more equitable and more enjoyable achievement. In this session we will consider what this different approach is, thinking about the ways we can teach students to increase equity, engagement, and achievement.
We will also consider the nature of the content we are teaching. We are in an exciting time in terms of the knowledge we can all access, and the ways knowledge is being communicated. Our world is filled with data and data visualizations and a new, important goal for our teaching is to help students become data literate, learning to make sense of data in their lives and separate fact from fiction. All teachers can teach with a data perspective, integrating the ideas from data science into their teaching. This session will invite you to think about the ways we can teach and learn with a 21st century perspective.
