‘We should no longer assume that students are developing conceptual understanding – we must teach for, and draw out the conceptual understandings.’ – Lynn Erickson and Lois Lanning

 

Let’s construct communities of inquiry defined by a strong physical literacy and let’s focus on the process of learning that engages students, promotes a deeper understanding, and supports a life-long inquiry. The cognitive, teacher and student presence should mark these communities and the understanding should be viewed as a performance; it is something we do.

The workshop is addressed to educators who are aiming to establish superior learning by creating a motivating and energizing environment in their teams. The leaders, who are willing to prioritize the growth of intellect in a climate of collaboration, will gain new perspectives by exploring strategies and build conceptual understandings that are transferable across various learning domains.

Mihai Catrinar has over 13 years international experience at schools in Muscat, Abu Dhabi and Doha, and now he is currently a PYP Physical Education teacher at Stamford American International School in Singapore. In October 2016, he led a two days 4 Generations 4 Education workshop at the Swiss International School in Dubai. Mihai enjoys building meaningful and engaging learning environments for his students while integrating the latest bits of technology. He was awarded in 2014 with the SEK Award for The Best Work of Educational Innovation and Best Educational Practice in Preschool, among all SEK schools from Spain, France, Ireland and Qatar. He presented practical “Mobile Technology in Physical Education” at the Educational Summit in Doha, and “IPads in PE” at PhysEdSummit Conference online.  In his current position, Mihai promotes student’s global awareness and understanding of sport values. He constructs, experiments and implements high-standard teaching strategies throughout the entire learning process. Mihai blogs at Fit’n’Wit PE and he tweets @fitnwitpe.
