Toddle Presents: Conceptual Understanding with Julia Stern

Julie is a passionate and inspirational speaker, who keeps her focus both concrete and accessible. She is the best selling author of multiple books on conceptual learning. She has a great vision for education and provides a ‘road map’

Vision: Empowering students to use their learning to create a more just, sustainable, and healthy planet by organizing learning around powerful concepts and intentionally teaching for learning transfer.

Rationale: The world is changing in three major ways:

  • Nature of work: from routine work to innovation and creativity
  • Nature of human interaction: from individual, homogenous to diverse, globalizing teams
  • Nature of our relationship to the planet: from take, use, discard to conserve, renew
  • Younger generations are living in a new reality. Therefore schools need to change to:
    • Prepare young people for jobs of the 21st Century
    • Prepare young people to tackle the problems of the world
    • Channel and cultivate their motivation
