ICOT 18 - International Conference on Thinking - Cultivating Mindsets for Global Citizens

Contemporary developments have forced a challenging shift in the way we think about what matters most to learn.

Drawing on research that looked at the character of expertise across multiple disciplines, including an in-depth qualitative study comparing expert and novice understanding of climate change, this workshop will invite participants to explore critical considerations for curricular design if they are to nurture the kinds of thinking that will stand learners ...

Thinking And Learning In The Postnormal Era: How Might We Respond To A Curriculum That Embraced Diverse Perspectives And Contested Issues?, Nigel P. Coutts Mr

ICOT 18 - International Conference on Thinking - Cultivating Mindsets for Global Citizens

We live in a time of chaos, complexity and contradiction. Where rapid changes and transformations through technology, politics, globalisation and the climate, conspire against normality. These times demand a fresh approach to education, one that provides learners with the thinking dispositions they need to turn challenges into opportunities, to connect their learning to their passions and emerge from their years of formal education as self-navigating life-long learners. This workshop will unpack how such an approach can be embedded into the existing curriculum and encourage dreams of a future curriculum that embraces this type of learning.

Visual O Visible Thinking: Es Esa La Cuestion?, Josi Js Sierra, Garbiñe Larralde, Juan Manuel Villar

ICOT 18 - International Conference on Thinking - Cultivating Mindsets for Global Citizens

Para poder debatir durante el ICOT18 planteamos un dilema que NO tiene una respuesta única: el pensamiento visual ¿se expresa mediante elementos gráficos y textuales? o ¿es el propio pensamiento el que esta en proceso de construcción mientras garabateamos, dibujamos y escribimos?

¿Es una herramienta más que utiliza nuestra mente para recorrer los diferentes caminos por los que van adquiriendo sentido los conceptos y proposiciones mientras vamos dando forma a las ideas que nos “rondan en la cabeza?

Durante el Taller Interactivo recorreremos los planteamientos de diferentes autores y sus propuestas, enriqueciendo los postulados iniciales con las aportaciones de los ...

An Investigation Of The Effects Of Taking Remedial Math In College On Degree Attainment And College Gpa Using Multiple Imputation And Propensity Score Matching, Meghan A. Clovis

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Enrollment in degree-granting postsecondary institutions in the U.S. is increasing, as are the numbers of students entering academically underprepared. Students in remedial mathematics represent the largest percentage of total enrollment in remedial courses, and national statistics indicate that less than half of these students pass all of the remedial math courses in which they enroll. In response to the low pass rates, numerous studies have been conducted into the use of alternative modes of instruction to increase passing rates. Despite myriad studies into course redesign, passing rates have seen no large-scale improvement. Lacking is a thorough investigation into preexisting ...

Individuals with Intellectual Disability (ID) struggle to learn daily living skills (DLS) required for independent living.

This study investigated the effects of using least-to-most prompting and mobile technology as a tool to assist 18 to 22-year-old adult students with ID to find six items from a grocery-shopping list. Dependent measures included the number of task steps completed correctly, selecting ...
