‘Innovation in everyday teaching: No more waiting for Superman’.

Alejandro Paniagua, Consultant, Centre for Educational Reserach and Innovation (CERI), OECD

Preparing young people to meet new learning goals and skills in a fast-changing world requires teachers to review and update their understanding of how pedagogy influences learning. However, recognising the key role of innovative pedagogies isnot about policy dictating the best teaching methods. Rather, innovation should be looked at as a problem-solving process that teachers use in their constantly changing classrooms.  The presenter will explore the relevance of the work on pedagogies and innovation and will discuss six clusters of pedagogical approaches: blended learning, computational thinking, experiential learning, embodied learning, multiliteracies and discussion-based teaching, and gamification.
