RETHINKING LITERACY

Rethinking Literacy is an informative and inspirational meeting of teachers interested in discussing how new technologies are transforming traditional definitions of literacy and the impact on learning in our schools.

Cris Turple

It was a hugely inspiring conference with such a great atmosphere of sharing and people wanting to inspire each other.  I would definitely love to come back.

Edward Duncan

Loved everything about this conference. The pace, the workshops, the speakers and the colleagues. It had a really positive vibe, and it was refreshing to hear teachers talking about what they could do, rather than complaining about what “wouldn’t happen at my school!”  Thank you for the organising!

Vikki wright

Such a great conference. I learned so many practical strategies that can be easily implemented into the classroom. These small changes can be transformative!

RETHINGKING NUMERACY

There were some great little snippets hidden amongst the sessions. It was also nice to catch up and chat to other Maths teachers in the region.

High School Math Teacher

#rethinkingnumeracy was an incredible conference and a totally unique experience within Asia.  I suspect that this conference will only go from strength to strength and should be a must for all Maths specialists within Asia.

Nici Foote

A really great insight into the ways that inquiry can be used in the maths classroom.  

Middle School Math Teacher

It was a very refreshing and yet warm experience as I got to meet like-mind Math teachers to discuss issue in teaching Math and our daily struggles. It was great meeting others and learn from other on their use of various platforms in their teaching.

There is something to be said for the coming together of such passionate educators, which innately spikes the enjoyment of our profession. This was a perfect time in the school year to feel this. Thank you to everyone!
