"How can conceptual understanding help both procedural mastery and creative programming?”
Rather than teaching standard math procedures in schools, which would lead students to apply learned methods like robots, we want to teach them to learn and adapt. A conceptual understanding of the matter involves creative thinking, and can lead to much more sophisticated algorithms, which then can be used in the programming world.
Please join us in a discussion with Lothar Troeller, an unconventional math coach and middle/high school/special education teacher, who will demonstrate this paradigm on how to teach human computing in an unconventional way. The discussion will be moderated by Olaf Witkowski, from Tokyo Tech.
