Saturday Keynote Speaker: Dr. Jo Boaler
Limitless: Learn, Lead and Live without Barriers.

Recent years have seen an explosion of scientific evidence, from neuroscience, psychology and education showing that there is a different way to teach and learn, available to us all. When people take a limitless approach to learning – in mathematics and in life – different pathways open up to them, leading to higher, more equitable and more enjoyable achievement. Mindset messages are important but they do not take root unless they are accompanied by a multiplicity approach to content and life. In this session we will consider what a mindset and multiplicity approach to mathematics is. We will watch videos of students, work on mathematics together, and think together about ways to create equitable and engaging learning experiences that are limitless.
