On the following day, Friday 23rd January at 14:30 pupils from Woodlands Primary Academy and Tim Handley, ICT & Maths Lead will be virtually joined by children from around the world. In the session they will share how they use technology to enhance and extend learning as well as motivate and engage learners and parents in and out of school. They will also talk about their visions for the future and share their ideas for technology can enhance learning. ‘Learners Voice - Technology beyond computing’ will also be held in the Bett Arena presentation area of the show.
One example of a math session will be when Peter Esperanza from Barstow High School shares his experience of developing ‘Improved Attitudes Toward Maths In A Flipped Class.’ This will be held at 15:30 on Thursday 22nd January. This study sought to determine the extent to which high school students attitudes toward math changed during the course of their math class, delivered via the flipped classroom model. This study examined how the implementation of flipped classroom affects the students’ self-confidence, motivation, enjoyment, and value of math.
