Workshops for teachers
NZCER is presenting workshops for teachers in Years 4 to 8 based on two new reports from the 2017 National Monitoring Study of Student Achievement (NMSSA) science study. The interactive workshops will show teachers and curriculum leaders how insights from the NMSSA findings can be used in the classroom. The workshops are supported by the Ministry of Education and are free. Attendee numbers are limited to 30 per workshop and up to three participants per school.
Game-based learning supports diverse curriculum learning opportunities
Using a games for learning approach, educators are able to generate an array of curriculum-linked learning opportunities, assist in the development of key competencies, and create an inclusive learning environment.
These are key findings that come from the New Zealand Council for Educational Research (NZCER) Games, gamification, and game design for learning (Games for Learning) report released today.
