Workshop 4: Inquiry
Science Education Professor Hubert Dyasi discusses inquiry-based learning in science and explains why it is essential in all subjects. In this workshop, you will see several classrooms where inquiry learning is taking place and explore numerous strategies you can use in your own classroom.
Workshop 5: Idea-Making
Student idea-making in mathematics is the subject of this workshop. Professor Constance Kamii, who studied under Jean Piaget for 12 years, explains how you can adapt your teaching to help students construct their own mathematical ideas. You will see video of students engaged in “mind mathematics” articulate and defend their strategies to classmates, and you will cons
Workshop 6: The Mind's Intelligences
This workshop considers Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences and shows his theory being applied in a range of classrooms. As Gardner shares his thoughts on educational reform, you will learn how to create learning environments that support the full spectrum of students’ abilities.
Workshop 7: Design, Construction, and Technology
MIT Professor Mitchel Resnick guides this workshop exploring technology as an aid for learning. He discusses the impact of technology on learning when students design and construct tools to support their own inquiries. Teachers demonstrate technology in their classrooms and provide a sneak peek at Resnick’s newest learning tool — the cricket.
Division with Negative Numbers
In video they start with review of multiplication and how it is repeated addition. Then they review division, then they go on negative times a positive, using this they show how a negative divided by a negative is a positive, working backwards you have a negative times a positive is negative. Then some other examples are given. So, a negative divided by a positive equals a negative, a positive divided by a negative equals a negative, and a negative divided by a negative equals a positive. Then s
Advanced Bank Math Game in Montessori
This is a clip on how to learning to play a bank game composition of numbers geared for preschoolers. The game activity is presented.
Physical education Differentiation
Physical education Differentiation I am researching inclusive PE lessons and the need for differentiation for the inclusion of all learners. I also need to link this to the role of competition in a inclusive PE learning environment. My research is focused on key stage 1/2 and PE lessons.
Connecting With the Arts: Why Integrate the Arts?
This program explores how integrating the arts with other subjects raises the level of student engagement, helps teachers address diverse learning styles, establishes the relevance of learning for students, and provides alternative ways to communicate.
Connecting With the Arts: Identifying What Students Are Learning
This program investigates ways to evaluate student learning in and through the arts. Participants will see teachers using arts-based performance tasks to assess student understanding.
The Art of Teaching the Arts: Developing Students as Artists
In this session, participants explore how arts teachers help students develop knowledge and fundamental skills while weaving in opportunities for creativity and independence. First, a dance teacher gives senior students leadership responsibilities and coaches them in their choreography projects. Then a theatre teacher mentors stagecraft students who are responsible for the technical aspects of a dance concert. In an intermediate visual art course, a teacher builds on students’ prior learning i
The Art of Teaching the Arts: Addressing the Diverse Needs of Students
Arts teachers are aware of and respond to the many differences they find among their students. In this session, participants meet a visiting theatre artist who takes advantage of the different backgrounds and learning styles of ninth-graders to help them understand and embrace the playwriting process. A visual art teacher brings together honors art students and students with disabilities, so they can learn from each other. As a music teacher works with different classes, she addresses needs comm
Workshop 8: Learning to Listen
With Dr. Wynne Harlen. Formative assessment is a term that has gained prominence as teachers recognize the value of uncovering students’ thinking during the course of instruction. This information is then used to guide the development of lessons as well as provide feedback to students to assist them in their learning. In this workshop, you will see teachers e
Language Processing in the Brain
Demonstrates learning as an active process and shows the PET scan as an effective method of measuring brain function.

21st September 2006, the most of the internationals media shows the child of Dikika as a discover in Ethiopia : a three age old Australopithecus. The craniums pictures were similar as this we used in a labwork we proposed to pupils in French high school.
A series of portraits of teaching shows how six teachers from across the country are working to revamp their teaching and their schools, and are struggling against a variety of obstacles that might thwart their efforts. These teachers are working to undo the myths about learning inherent in their school systems, and are truly the heroes who will shape our children’s fu
Secondary Assessment for Learning - Geography
A 15 minute video on Teachers TV on Assessment for Learning in Geography (with accompanying resources). The video shows a Geography teacher and her Head of Department in a London Secondary school working with their classes on developing their Assessment for Learning skills.
Energetics and Dynamics
This program emphasizes the importance of learning about energetics and dynamics in order to improve students’ understanding of basic principles of chemistry. The complexity of teaching concepts such as the collisions theory, reaction kinetics, and electronic energy levels is introduced using a variety of teaching strategies. These concepts are related to everyday phenomena thro
Theory and Practice in Chemical Systems
This program shows how a theoretical understanding of the driving force for chemical systems can lead to further development of new technologies and to the discovery of new phenomena, in practice. In teaching, this is done through the creation of a close relationship between the science and mathematics of chemical processes, through problem-solving activities. These acti
This program deals with basic concepts that are required for the understanding of chemical design. The idea is brought about by experiences from everyday life, such as the stoichiometry of baking, the ingredients of soft drinks, the components of drugs, and the chromatography of markers. The tools of the chemical designer — the chemist — are found in the laboratory,
