How can we co-create the conditions where all learners can be and become assessment capable learners?
We will deepen our collective understanding of learner agency in this session, and the translation of this into our unique math learning contexts. We will explore ways to co-create the cultural conditions for learner agency, where all learners can flourish in their mathematical learning and, in partnership with young people, how we can become more discerning designers and users of assessment practices and tools.
Save the date: Tuesday 30th April 4pm-5pm for a follow up session to gather, collaborate and network with participants.
