About this learning opportunity
The new curriculum has brought a paradigm shift in the way problem solving is to be presented to students. We want to make the experience authentic and challenging so students can build a tool box of strategies that work for them.
In this session, we will look how the pedagogy has changed and how to make the process powerful within your classroom. Barb will share research and techniques to experiment with and then we will explore a number of different resources on the Internet.
This learning opportunity is subsidized as a result of a grant from Alberta Education to support implementation.
