Keynote by Jo Boaler
Recent years have seen an explosion of scientific evidence, from neuroscience, and education showing that there is a different way to teach and learn, available to us all. When people take a limitless approach to learning – in content areas and in life – different pathways open up to them, leading to higher, more equitable and more enjoyable achievement. Mindset messages are important, but they do not take root unless they are accompanied by a different approach to content and life. In this keynote we will consider what a limitless approach is, and the ways it is freeing for people. We will watch videos of students, see content differently and think together about ways to create equitable and engaging learning experiences that are limitless.
Dr Jo Boaler is a Stanford Professor. Former roles have included being a maths teacher in London schools. She is author of 14 books, numerous articles and a White House presenter on women and girls. Her latest book is called: Limitless Mind: Learn, Lead and Live without Barriers. She co-founded www.youcubed.org, is co-leading a K-12 Data Science Initiative and was named as one of the 8 educators “changing the face of education” by the BBC.
Leading Learning & Connections by James Nottingham
When adults amplify healthy mental models, and design out the problematic ones, then students gain significantly. However, mental models often lie hidden from everyday view and can be resistant to change even when they are uncovered. Thus, the sessions led by James Nottingham will connect to Professor Boaler’s keynote by drawing out the mental models underlying her work and identifying the steps that teachers and administrators could take to ensure successful change management.
James Nottingham is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, an award granted for making outstanding achievements to social progress and development, and is included in the Future 500, a “definitive list of the UK’s most forward thinking and creative innovators”. He is best-known for creating the Learning Pit®, a world-renowned model for enhancing curiosity, determination and strategy; and is also the author of nine books about teaching, learning, and leadership.
