An inspiring afternoon of practice for Education (16 Sep 2015)

What should children learn to be fully prepared for life in the 21st century? Besides language and mathematics and the core subjects, skills as teamwork, creativity, ICT literacy, communication, problem solving, critical thinking and social and cultural skills are essential. Also, a committed, venturous and inquisitive attitude is useful in the 21st century.

That is well said but how to approach this as a teacher? What are the possibilities? What is the proven approach? Where to start and what do you need? How can we learn from each other? Come to our afternoon of practice and find the answers!

Learning to learn in the 21st century

On Wednesday, September 16th, the Rolf Group, OinO advice, University of Twente and Open Discovery Space organize an inspiring afternoon of practice on Education in the 21st century. During this afternoon you will experience how the above mentioned 21st Century skills can be addressed in the daily teaching practice. Examples will be presented and the participating teacher can work with those examples during the afternoon. For example, it will be shown how you can build a 3D-printer together with your pupils and how to use this printer for math or you can experience how you can use a real robot can help pupils learn about colours. Discover more about how pupils as young as 4 years old can learn, in a fun way, to programme in their own learning environment. In addition, we are happy to inform you about other new and innovative educational applications that can make your teaching practice more interactive and interesting.
