Opening Keynote by Rob Proffitt-White

Using Cognitive Activation Tasks to Catalyse change in all classrooms”

Clarity around the mathematical proficiencies, mathematical literacies, general capabilities, and cognitive verbs are an integral part of a teachers’ tool kit today.

For this to happen, teachers and school leaders need time for and access to workshops that allow them the time to design, try out and align new ideas; cognitive activation tasks

The key note will address the problems of practice facing many schools despite the plethora of resources available. It will take you through the what, why and how behind the improved achievement and reported reengagement of students in mathematics classes across Prep to Year 9 and improved retention of mathematical literacies in other learning areas.

This will become the theoretical platform for the Rob’s workshops.

Some key events include :

* President’s welcome drinks the night before the conference starts

* a chance for you to participate in a Year 7/8 Quiz or Maths Teams Challenge

* the Conference Dinner with door prizes, trivia, and lucky draws

* many informative and inspirational sessions on ways to positively influence student learning
