Highlights from AAMT 2019

AAMT 2019 in Brisbane was an excellent conference and very worthwhile. Here are some of my highlights:


Edgy: Networks + Coding

The new Year 12 Standard topic Networks contains a number of algorithms that need to be learnt by the students.  Wouldn't it be great if there was an 'easy' way for them to code these?


Engagement with Desmos

Setting the Standard for Project Based Learning

114017bProject-Based Learning (PBL) is a major educational trend, as schools push to engage student and improve educational outcomes.  While a lot can be said about the concept and place of PBL in contemporary schools, it is important to understand how to create, implement and assess it within the classroom.  Setting the Standard for Project Based Learning: A Proven Approach to Rigorous Classroom Instruction (Larmer, Mergendoller & Boss, ASCD 2015) attempts to do just that, both from a leadership and practitioner's level.
