Creativity and innovation in education

talk

Creativity and innovation. Often used as flighty platitudes that everyone has an idea of, but no one can really say how it should be part of our schoolsystem. In this lecture, the concepts will be explained and you get examples of how everyday life in a public school may look like when creativity and innovation are integrated into the entire system.

You get practical advice on how creativity and innovation can be used in your everyday life, how you can incorporate it in your teaching, and how to ensure that you and your students enjoy the benefit of your common knowledge. There will also be input on how to use the concepts in everything from group tasks to the tasks imposed on the individual student. Last but not least, we look at how to use your students' talents in the creative and innovative processes.

The lecture is also available as a Workshop, where the focus is on exercises that can help you a step further in the process of implementing the creative and innovative terms in your school.

Entrepreneurship and Enterprise in Education

talk

What is Entrepreneurship and enterprise? It can be difficult to understand these terms and yet even more difficult to pass on this knowledge to primary - and secondary school students.
In this Talk you will gain insight in the terms of entrepreneurship and enterprise and thereby obtain the necessary knowledge and the necessary tools to disseminate the ways of entrepreneurship and enterprise directly in your teaching.
We also set focus on how you set up enterprise as a model of visible learning for your students, and we set up the marks for visible learning, in order to evaluate your students outcome. You will listen to real life cases where entrepreneurship and enterprise has had a huge impact on school curriculum and how your students gain knowledge and apply this in real life situations. You will learn to implement these models and terms into your teaching subject no matter what they are.
Entrepreneurship and enterprise are popular concepts, often used in public debate. Many schools are increasingly setting focus on these terms and ideas and are using them in all school subjects. This Talk can be used as further inspiration to schools who have already set entrepreneurship and enterprise as part of their school curriculum, but also as a kick starter for schools that are in the up-start phase.

Learning fight club

talk

Homework Cafés have been implemented in schools across the country. Most teachers have gradually gained experience with them, and there are lots of ways in which they are held. The goal of course is to help students with their homework, but how do we elevate the visible learning level, so the Homework Cafes becomes an integral part of students' visible learning?
The Learning fight club lecture is based on the experiences of everyday schoolwork in Danish schools. You get inspiration on how you can optimize your homework cafes, at your school, so you become an active part of the visible learning process. You get a variety of very specific advice and tools to get started and set goals for your participation in the process, and how to combine already learned skills and knowledge with the new you need to learn.
The students all have different skills and strengths, and their parents also. An integral part of the "Learning fight club" lecture is about parental involvement,so their diversity comes into play for the enjoyment of each students professional development.

FabLab and Design thinking in Education

FabLab is a way of controlling a process by modern thinking and inclusion of the 21st Century skills

The second part of this Talk is focused on the implementation of Design thinking and its five steps:
• Empathize - we seek access to the users situation
• Define - we define the needs and develop a problem statement
• Ideate - we come up with unlimited ideas
• Prototype - we develop physical prototypes
• Test - prototypes are tested and further developed

You will receive a handful of valuable tools on FabLab and Design thinking, which you can use actively in your daily teaching. It will fit directly into any curriculum and no matter if your school is already active using FabLab and design thinking or if your school is at its first step at looking into these valuable models.

Creativity, Innovation and Evaluation

talk

Is creativity and innovation part of your objectives? Do you have complete control over how you should measure and test creativity and innovation? It can be a great challenge to set visible objectives that you can measure, especially because creativity and innovation is usually not tangible and measurable units.

This lecture is about visible learning, how you can measure and evaluate your students' creativity and innovation. You get concrete tools that you can use in everyday life, when making evaluations on the creative and innovative processes. These are based on your experience and ideas, so you get as much as possible out of the lecture.

This lecture is intended primarily for those schools looking for inspiration on how you specifically evaluate the creative and innovative objectives and set targets for visible learning.

The Slow Teaching Movement

talk

Slow schools and slow education can refer to different aspects of education. The emphasis in this lecture is on the process not on the outcome. The process is about things like how are ideas conceptualised, how can we support learning and the knowing of how to learn, as well as the love of learning and investigating.
Some national curricula tries to fill in as many set goals and targets as possible in the relatively short time, of each students school life. Making the academic student grow but loosing other students.Similarities to the fast food industry and thereby also the slow food movement are obvious. But does it matter?
Some teachers are familiar with rigid control structures in place and schools driven by standardised curricula with tests and targets to ensure uniform outcome. Other teachers are happily working in small ponds where they can set up their own teaching environments within the national standards.
In this lecture we will focus on real life scenarios and cases from the Danish school system. You will gain knowledge and see visible signs of learning within the ways of The Slow Teaching Movement.
We will come across specific tools and evidence based education, that can help your students reach new goals in education and find the inner core of enjoyment and the love of learning in your students.
You will see the value of
You might even renew your energy of teaching and find out why educating students are a matter of - the way you teach!
