Teaching for Now

Future-oriented trends in education have become increasingly prominent in recent years. Typically, ideas of a future that will be radically different to our present state of affairs are used to convince educators that “everything must change”. We are told that we must focus on the learning required for jobs that don’t even exist yet. Moreover, these stories of the future world tend to imply a dismissing of not only the present, but also the past. The future is the next stop on the linear path we are travelling. Yet, the challenges of Covid-19 over the past year have been a reminder that the past, present and future are more deeply connected than many of these future-oriented educational discourses would have had us believe. How then do we respond? And what is the role of the teacher in this response?

In this presentation, we will aim to explore how we can start unlearning the common assumptions that so often drive global future-oriented educational practices, how we can re-focus on the present, and re-engage with the past. In other words: we will look at how we can re-learn, re-make and re-shape a purposeful education, right here and now.

Amazing 3D and VR Content to Boost Student Engagement

How often do your teachers discuss feeling intimidated by their lack of technology knowledge and experience when observing new generations of students that are born into a world of technology advancing at a rapid pace?

We will discuss ways of boosting your confidence to explore and create incredibly engaging content for many areas of the curriculum using free apps and software to create 3D environments, explore existing models that you can embed in your presentations, and explore your creations in 3D / VR / AR across multiple platforms.
In the first half of the presentation, we will discuss engagement, integration, different areas of the curriculum and the journey from creating 3D models for the classroom to winning the international NASA / LEGO design competition and being flown to Kennedy Space Centre to meet the NASA team and observe their Space Education programs.

In the second half, we will go through some specific workflows and discuss some free cross-platform apps like Sweet Home 3D & LEGO design Studio 2.0, and how to extract your designs and add them to Sketchfab to view on any connected device and interact with.

At the very least, by the end of the presentation you will be able to embed interactive models into your existing Keynotes / PowerPoints, websites or eBooks using existing models from vast libraries of rich online content, but with the ultimate aim of giving it shot and creating your own specific content too!

Changing Learning Spaces

The use of technology in teaching has led to the change of learning spaces in schools. The challenge of online education requires a reliance on technology use in teaching and learning. Through semi-structured interviews with Chinese educators and high school students Ms Wang has researched the positive attitudes towards online classes such as self-paced learning, protection from peer pressure and positive self-esteem alongside the negative attitudes, including low levels of efficiency, diminishing engagement and challenges of collaboration and discussion. In this workshop, participants will discuss the use of technology and its potential effects in different schools and contexts.

Curriculum Conundrums and the MYP: Attention Grabbing with Ethical Dilemmas

This session focuses on using real life ethical dilemmas in interdisciplinary curriculum to generate student focus and support learning outcomes. Emotion drives attention and attention drives learning and ethical dilemmas are a thought-provoking way to stimulate student interest and discussion. Value and belief systems are important concepts; they are an integral part of what makes us human and by using these as a reference point, teachers can support purposeful inquiry based units and understand how these enrich the student interdisciplinary learning experience. All examples will be drawn from our recently published teacher resource books ‘Interdisciplinary Thinking for Schools: Ethical Dilemmas MYP 1, 2 & 3’ and ‘Interdisciplinary Thinking for Schools: Ethical Dilemmas MYP 4 & 5’ (John Catt Educational Ltd, UK).
