THE MINDSET REVOLUTION: TEACHING FOR A GROWTH MINDSET

We are in the midst of a revolution, in the science of the brain and learning. New knowledge from brain science is showing a clear path for learning, that is both exciting and inspiring for teachers. In the CUE 2017 National Conference Kickoff Keynote, Dr. Jo Boaler and the co-founder of youcubed, will share recent and important research on the brain and learning that has profound implications for students’ achievement. We will watch videos of students who have changed their pathways and consider many ways to bring the new science into teaching of all subjects.


Dr. Jo Boaler is a Professor of Mathematics Education at Stanford University, and the co-founder of youcubed. She is also an analyst for PISA testing in the OECD, and author of the first MOOC on mathematics teaching and learning. Former roles have included being the Marie Curie Professor of Mathematics Education in England, a mathematics teacher in London comprehensive schools, and a lecturer and researcher at King’s College, London. Her PhD won the national award for educational research in the UK and her book: Experiencing School Mathematics won the 'Outstanding Book of the Year' award for education in Britain.

Dr. Boaler is an elected fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (Great Britain), and a former president of the International Organization for Women and Mathematics Education (IOWME).  She is the recipient of a National Science Foundation 'Early Career Award' and the NCSM Kay Gilliland Equity Award (2014). Dr. Boaler is the author of nine books and numerous research articles. Her latest book is Mathematical Mindsets: Unleashing Students' Potential through Creative Math, Inspiring Messages and Innovative Teaching (2016), and is published by Wiley. She serves as an advisor to several Silicon Valley companies and was an Aspen ideas speaker and a White House presenter on girls and STEM. Her work has been published in the Times, The Telegraph, The Financial Times, and many other news outlets.

Dr. Boaler was recently named one of the eight educators “changing the face of education” by the BBC. She recently formed www.youcubed.org to give teachers, parents, and student the resources and ideas they need to inspire and excite students about mathematics.

(Jo will also be available to sign books at the CUE Gear Store Thursday, March 16 from 10:00 - 11:00 am.)

Integrating Technology in the Arts
For many schools, tech in the arts classroom is a second thought. I was lucky enough to have a principal and district that saw my passion for utilizing technology in the classroom. So, even though I don’t teach a core subject (I teach theatre full time), they supplied me with a classroom chromebook cart and about ten iPads. The goal of this presentation is to inspire you to integrate technology in your arts curriculum, because, in the real world, technology is just as prevalent in the arts as it is in all aspects of our lives.

THE INNOVATOR'S MINDSET

Carol Dweck’s work has focused on the ideas of “fixed” and “growth” mindset, yet educators will need to go a step further with these notions to create the learning opportunities that our students and schools deserve. We need to focus not only what we know, but what we do with what we know. In this talk, George will discuss the idea and characteristics of “The Innovator’s Mindset” (as discussed in the book of the same title), and share powerful examples as to why this is so crucial for all educators. George’s presentations are known to be emotional, humorous, all while pushing your thinking, and will definitely connect to your heart first, in a way that will last with you long after this keynote.


George Couros is a leading educator in the area of innovative leadership, teaching, and learning. He has worked with all levels of school, from K-12 as a teacher, technology facilitator, and school and district administrator, and is the author of the book, The Innovator’s Mindset; Empower Learning, Unleash Talent, and Lead a Culture of Creativity. He is a sought after speaker on the topic of innovative student learning and engagement and has worked with schools and organizations around the globe. George is also the creator of Connected Principals.com, an initiative that brings educators and leaders together from around the world to create powerful learning opportunities for students.  

Although George is a leader in the area of innovation, his focus is always on the development of leadership and people and what is best for learners. His belief that meaningful change happens when you first connect to people’s hearts, is modelled in his writing and speaking. You can connect with George on his blog, The Principal of Change (georgecouros.ca) or through Twitter @gcouros.

(George will also be available to sign books at the CUE Gear Store Friday, March 17 from 10:00 - 11:00 am.)
