How can students learn now in ways they couldn't learn before?
What new pedagogies take advantage of the open architecture of the internet and model effective learning design?
How can we create deep learning experiences that encourage students to show and share what they know and contribute to the global knowledge commons?
This workshop models ways we can eliminate disposable assignments (assignments students complain about doing and teachers complain about grading) and instead create tasks that add value to the classroom and beyond. Come learn what is meant by "open pedagogy" and reimagine new ways you can teach and your students can learn.
Real world math has been transformed by technology (because computers can do the computations) in ways that subjects like Real World History & Literature haven’t. While technology will never replace teachers, it has opened doors to new ways of structuring student participation in their own learning and opened windows onto the world in ways that allow us to build in feedback loops for learning from people within and beyond the boundaries of the space and time of the classroom. After wading through examples of concrete student centred learning experiences that reimagine ways teachers think about how they structure the architecture of participation in the teaching of mathematics we will begin to reimagine how each of us might evolve our own open pedagogy.
