Why Kids Learn from Examples (and why other times they don't)

About This Webinar

Why is it that sometimes students learn from the examples presented in class, and other times they don't? In this session we'll answer this question with ideas from research and classroom experiences. Here's the short version: when students think deeply about something, they're likely to learn from it. We'll discuss how to engineer this sort of deep thinking in practice.

Recommended Level: K - 12

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts Why Kids Learn from Examples (and why other times they don't)
The Global Math Department began as a group of teachers who knew each other through Twitter, math education blogs and Twitter Math Camp. Since 2012 The Global Math Department community has grown into a multi-faceted group of math educators who love to share their ideas related to teaching and learning mathematics. We recognize that as educators we are charged with promoting equity and access within mathematics instruction. In addition, we believe it is crucial that teachers be provided with quality resources and ideas that they can use immediately with their students. Lively and friendly conversations in our weekly webinars encourage all participants to share and continue to grow as educators.
