He argues that creativity is as important in education now as literacy. He discusses the lack of variety of opportunities for students to be creative in the way we educate them.… Read More »

Teaching mathematics by visual scaffolding

Visual scaffolding is a natural support to learning mathematics since most mathematical concepts are first distilled visually i.e. a concept is conceived as having a specific visual beginning, and a defined visual progression. As the concept progresses, numbers are incrementally engaged in translating the visuals into numerical information. The visual connections are designed to make… Read More »

The surprising truth about what motivates us
