Free Webinar - Moving Past the School Factory Model

I hope you will take advantage of this opportunities to improve your webinar skills and knowledge below.

Closing the Factory: Productive Struggle and the New Math Model
This event takes place on Tuesday, Jan. 26, 2016, 2 to 3 p.m. ET.

It's common knowledge that our school system was built on a factory model, where students were prepared for rote jobs that didn't require innovation, critical thinking, or creative problem solving. But students today need cognitive challenges, not tasks or memorization. Using various techniques, teachers can help students see that hard work and incorrect answers—the "productive struggle" crucial to real knowledge acquisition—represent steps on the path toward mastery, rather than seeing them as signs of failure.

Join us for a webinar where we'll details ways to help learning move into the 21st century, with a special emphasis on K-12 mathematics. We'll cover concrete practices to help students develop a growth mindset through productive struggle, tactics for developing deeper conceptual thinking in mathematics and beyond, and strategies for moving past rote tasks in homework and in-class assignments to work that actually engages students' intellects and challenges them to think creatively.
