This three-day conference, to be held November 4-6 in Atlanta, Georgia, will focus on teaching and learning in schools and in environments other than schools such as online forums, museums, and other arts venues. In collaboration with the Woodruff Arts Center, the Museum of Design Atlanta and the Atlanta International School, the conference will feature Project Zero researchers and practitioners sharing highlights of their work on the following themes:
Artful & Visible Thinking: How do we help students develop thinking dispositions that support thoughtful learning-in the arts and across school subjects?
GoodWork & GoodPlay: How can we effectively learn collaboratively (both adults and children)? How are the meanings of local and global citizenship shifting in the 21st century?
Interdisciplinary Learning: What is the added value of exploring topics through multiple disciplinary lenses?
Learning In and Out of School: How do we ensure learners understand what is most important to learn, both in the traditional classroom and in non-traditional learning environments?
Making Learning Visible: How do we effectively document and assess individual and group learning? Why is it important to make learning visible?
Speakers include Veronica Boix Mansilla, Howard Gardner, Lois Hetland, Carrie James, David Perkins, Steve Seidel and Shari Tishman. The conference will feature plenary sessions with the option to attend a selection of interactive courses led by researchers and practitioners currently using Project Zero ideas in schools and other learning environments.
Participants can choose between attending the entire conference or the Friday-only arts day at the Woodruff Arts Center and Museum of Design Atlanta. Included in the full-conference registration fee are a reception, discussion groups led by Project Zero researchers, book-signing events, after-hours entry to the High Museum, and lunch on Saturday.
Educating for Today and Tomorrow is hosted by CASIE (Center for the Advancement and Study of International Education), in collaboration with Project Zero and the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
