2 Day Workshop at BIRS — Ted Lewis SNAP Math Fair Workshop 2020
07 Apr 2020 - 19 Apr 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
Over the past few years it has become apparent the importance in finding the correct balance between inquiry-based problem solving and practicing basic facts in the mathematics classroom. The purpose of a SNAP math fair is to provide a meaningful problem-solving experience for all students. This would be the eighteenth annual Ted Lewis Math Fair Workshop at BIRS. The workshop is extremely popular with teachers in elementary and secondary schools, provides them with resources for lesson plans, and it is helping to reshape the way mathematics is being approached in the schools. Problem solving and puzzles in the classroom is now a specific area of the K-9 curriculum and in-service teachers have had very little training in using these tools effectively. This is not limited to Alberta schools, and the SNAP math fair idea is now spreading around the world. This type of 2-day workshop is considered front line approach in the collaborative effort between mathematicians, more experienced teachers, and all teachers interested in professional development to improve the mathematics teaching in the elementary level and beyond. To have teachers share their valuable experiences with math fair in their own schools is the best and most useful information to others. Teachers in Alberta and participants from outside view the Ted Lewis Workshop as one of PIMS and BIRS most valuable education initiatives.

2 Day Workshop at BIRS — Canadian Math Kangaroo Contest Meeting
07 Aug 2020 - 09 Aug 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
The Canadian Math Kangaroo Contest (CMKC) aims to dispel the myth that mathematics is inaccessible and difficult by using an all-inclusive and open mathematics competition to create a positive environment that emphasizes the practical and fun nature of mathematics. Since joining the International Association “Kangaroo without Borders” in 2006, the CMKC has formed hosting partnerships with multiple universities and prestigious organizations across the country. Since its inception, the CMKC has found many ways to expand the reach and scope of its unique program, and to build new, complementary programs based upon the competition. Over the past 14 years, the CMKC has grown significantly from its humble beginnings with approximately 300 participants at 3 locations to just over 6900 students nationwide in the 2019 competition in more than 50 locations in 9 provinces across Canada. The purpose of the workshop is to chart the future course for Math Kangaroo in Canada.

neo-sai2020 — Comprendre et construire les nouvelles situations d'apprentissage instrumentées
04 Nov 2020 - 05 Nov 2020 • Rouen, France
Organizer:
LINEACT - CESI, CIRNEF, LITIS
Abstract:
Les équipements de simulation en santé ou de réalité augmentée pour accompagner l’activité humaine, les jumeaux numériques d’installations industrielles, les fablabs et les laboratoires de prototypage, les salles équipées pour l’utilisation de la réalité virtuelle... constituent de nouveaux environnements d’apprentissage dans l'enseignement supérieur ou dans l'entreprise. Comprendre ou construire les situations d’apprentissage instrumentées qui mettent en œuvre de tels environnements soulève de nombreuses questions, auxquelles des travaux de recherche ou des expérimentations commencent à apporter des éléments de réponse. Le colloque ‘‘Comprendre et construire les nouvelles situations d’apprentissage instrumentées’’ doit permettre de les réunir et produire un état de l'art et des avancées dans ce domaine, en matière de recherches comme d'ingénierie.

IAUS367 — Education and Heritage in the Era of Big Data in Astronomy. First steps on the IAU 202-2030 Strategic Plan
09 Dec 2020 - 14 Dec 2020 • San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina
Organizer:
Nationa University of Rio Negro
Abstract:
The primary goal of this Symposium is to give perhaps for the first time a global vision of Education and Heritage in the frame of the goals of the IAU, taking into account the Plan 2020-2030 and to propose an eventual ‘next steps’ road map and a global astronomy education agenda for the next decade, while honouring the education from the past.

In this sense, we would foster inclusiveness in the advancement of astronomy and facilitate the advancement of the next generation of astronomers and scientists, through encouragement of the use of new methods of learning and best practices (including distance education: Moocs) in pedagogy at university level, as well as the use of astronomy for teaching and education at school level, which are part of the definitions of the proposed Office of Astronomy for Education (OAE), which also pursuits the establishment of a Network of Astronomy Education Contacts (NAECs) to provide accessible materials and astronomy literacy guidelines globally. The invited speakers are international leaders in discipline-based education in astronomy and the planetary science, but also in communication, history, inclusion and protection of world’s heritage, including the dark sky.

As with most other sciences, astronomy is being fundamentally transformed by the Information and Computation Technology (ICT) revolution. The data volume is growing exponentially, can be accessed remotely and the observations can be performed even without a real knowledge of a telescope. The new approaches to the data permits the development of new tools, techniques and resources for data analysis and produce discoveries which probably never would be reached with traditional astronomy data analysis period.

Topics:
State-of-the-art of astronomy education in countries/continents in the framework of the 2020-2030 IAU plan, Meta-analysis of astronomy education research on contents/school grade levels/focus on education cross studies, Literacy in Astronomy, Innovations in education methodologies and instrumentation, Research into the value and influence of astronomy education in other disciplines, Big Data in education and Open Astronomy, Astronomy as an interdisciplinary approach to science education in all levels, Inclusive education in Astronomy, Use of Astronomy Education Research experiments and results by teachers and in informal education activities (museum, planetarium, etc), Cultural Astronomy and heritage and education: from Stonehenge to the Space telescopes.
