With an over-arching theme of Zeroing in on Learning, the Amsterdam conference will consider in which environments learners can thrive; how focusing on thinking can lead to richer learning; and what lessons we can draw from effective collaboration.
Upcoming Project Zero Perspectives conference, Leading, Learning, & Thinking, will highlight several ongoing projects with schools in Victoria as well as PZ practices that aim to enrich thinking and learning opportunities for students.
The opportunities and challenges facing educators in the Digital Age will be the focus of the Project Zero Perspectives conference in Sydney. Young people are connected to one another around the globe in ways unimaginable just 20 years ago. How we as educators respond will influence the level of civic engagement, the ethics and the intellectual curiosity of an entire generation.
Conference attendees use Project Zero thinking routines
A huge thanks to the Flux Foundation for this interactive piece at our Project Zero Perspectives: Making, Thinking, Understanding. Participants were able to interact daily creating a beautiful flowing carousel which remained at Lick-Wilmerding after the conference.
