Hear and Learn

While our learning spaces and curriculum are being modernised, is our understanding of auditory learning keeping up?

Are the complexities and challenges for teachers to conduct individual group work, whole group work and communicate across bigger rooms being addressed by technology?

The work of Dr Janelle Wills in evaluating the world-first ‘Activate’ classroom communications technology will be explained, and attendees will:

  1. Learn how the latest ‘Activate’ learning technology better enables teachers to foster meaningful student dialogue and thinking, create productive student groups and develop respectful learning relationships between and among students and teachers.
  2. Discover ways the Activate learning technology can support teachers to accurately assess and report on the Speaking and Learning elements of English Curriculum Achievement Standards rather than resorting to an ‘educated guess’.
