Educando Hacia La Sustentabilidad, Maria F. Guida

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

Las escuelas y los sistemas educativos fueron creados para responder a los desafíos emergentes de un determinado período histórico. A medida que avanzamos en la historia de la educación observamos que se utilizaron distintos modelos según los factores políticos y socioeconómicos del momento.

El modelo actual de la escuela todavía responde a inquietudes del siglo pasado. Nuestro mundo atraviesa realidades totalmente distintas y nuestro futuro es cambiante y desconocido.

Problemáticas mundiales como el Calentamiento Global y Cambio Climático constituyen grandes ejemplos de esta nueva etapa que atraviesa nuestro planeta. Debemos preparar a nuestros alumnos a manejarse ante estos continuos cambios ...

From Head To Head Or Heads Together? Cultivating Information Literacy In Early Childhood, Marilyn Way, Kerry Boland

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

From Head to Head or Heads Together? offers an interactive workshop sharing effective evidence-based pedagogical approaches to Information Literacy (IL) in the early years, particularly in redressing disadvantage. IL skills are 21st Century skills needed by children and families to ensure inequities are challenged. Being able to find, evaluate and apply information for personal benefit is a key attribute in today's knowledge economy. IL goes beyond developing functional skills to creating attributes that enable lifelong learning. However, simply having access to digital technologies and online resources does not always equate to developing these attributes.

Self-Coaching With Ai: Developing Thinking Skills, Thinking Dispositions, And Well-Being, Olivier Malafronte, Isla Reddin, Roy Van Den Brink-Budgen

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

Being motivated by the need to address the challenges of our Volatile Uncertain Complex Ambiguous world, we strive to create tools to improve people’s lives and help them become more resilient, resourceful, self-confidant, and successful.

In a digital world, we must understand how to efficiently connect to digital systems. Connecting “with AI” doesn’t mean spending more time on digital devices, but spending time in a deliberate way with purpose and intentional learning outcomes.

As a society, we want to see graduates with emotional intelligence and reflective skills in order to address global economic and social issues. As ...

Coaching And The Neurosciences, Michael Dolcemascolo Mr., Jane Ellison Dr.

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

WORKSHOP TITLE: Coaching and the Neurosciences

CONFERENCE THEMES: This proposal addresses the conference theme of Education, Learning and the Brain, specifically the question, “How can we make better use of brain-power and thinking skills to optimize our human experience and expression?”

For decades, educational leaders have been challenged to bring knowledge from the neurosciences into the classroom (Caine & Caine, 1991; Given, 2002; Jensen, 1998; Sprenger, 1999; Sylwester, 1995; Wolfe, 1998). Current research supports constructivist practices as most brain-compatible for children. Perhaps ironically, some models of coaching adults are based upon behavioristic psychology attempting to install behaviors into an educator’s pedagogy. Current ...

The objective of this workshop is to guide participants to reflect about how their beliefs related to social justice and critical literacy influence their actual teaching practices as early childhood educators. The second purpose is to support participants with the creation of a plan to include critical literacy as part of their teaching practices in their classrooms. An essential goal of early childhood education should be to support young children to become aware of inequalities in society and to question the stereotypes that they have been exposed to while growing up. These goals can be reached by using children´s ...

Nurturing More Expert Ways For Thinking About Climate Change, Flossie S. G. Chua

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. As traditional systems of learning are substantially challenged and reshaped, consensus is building around the importance of educating learners for grappling insightfully and productively with complex issues that are often controversial. 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 ...

Los espacios que nos rodean influyen en nuestro ánimo, en nuestras decisiones, comportamientos y valores.

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.

Rethinking Child Behaviour As A Neurophysiological Phenomenon, Angie M. Rosati Ms

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

How can recent findings from the field of neuroscience regarding the neurophysiological roots of child behaviour be leveraged to inform our efforts to promote emotionally supportive relationships and ultimately student learning in the early years? First, we might train early educators to utilize these neurophysiological findings to rethink child behavior, a key variable in the student-teacher relationship. Second, we might train educators to rethink the importance of emotionally supportive relationships from this same neurophysiological lens.The need to rethink child behavior and student teacher relationships is more critical now than ever before. The rise in educator reported challenging behavior and ...

How Do Curriculum And Pedagogy Impact Learner Wellbeing?, Alex J. Box Ms, Nicole M. Barnes Mrs

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

One of our concerns when approaching education, is the need to better recognise the impact that general curriculum and pedagogy have on student wellbeing. In addition to effective and explicit wellbeing programs, we believe that embedding authentic opportunities for local and global citizneship into the curriculum positively affects wellbeing. We believe that adopting the New Pedagogies for Deep Learning framework addresses student wellbeing and we unpack aspects of the model that do so, emphasising the role of global citizenship development.
