Seminario: Avancemos En Las Matematicas: La Mirada de Singapur, Conception & Santiago, Chile 28 and 30 September 2010

Held at Hotel Terrano in Conception and Hotel Manquehue in Santiago, this seminar is to introduce the Singapore Textbook Project by Chilean Ministry of Education. In this project, schools are sampled and it will involve 100 teachers and 40000 students in all parts of Chile. The project involve the school opting for Pensar sin Limites textbook instead of the regular MOE textbook. For 2011, Primary 1 and Primary 2 are involved. In the following year, Primary 3 will be added. Eventually Primary 4 students will be involved in 2013. I spoke on the focus, the learning principles and the factors that contribute to pupil learning. I also shared data to indicate the efficacy of the programme.
