Feedback form is now closed.
This will be a facilitated discussion on changes in science/math education in the last 5 years. I will start with some of the changes I have seen since the introduction of High School Redesign and the competencies introduced in the Ministerial Order. Next, I would share my thoughts on what I have seen so far in the Curriculum change. I will then open up the floor for general discussions.
Items of discussion could include:
- use of formative assessment
- outcome-based assessment
- report cards
- pons and cons of technology/Social media in the classroom
- political changes
- ELL/International students
- literacy/numeracy
