The Presenter   

Shimon Schocken

Professor Shimon Schocken, IDC, Israel
Shimon is the founding dean of the Efi Arazi School of Computer Science at IDC Herzliya, a young Israeli university that I helped establish in 1995. He was a tenured professor at NYU (1985-1995), a visiting professor at Harvard (2005) and at Stanford (2012), and chairman of the Israeli ministry of education’s computer science committee. He is also the co-founder and CTO of Matific.com , the award-winning early-age math education software. 
In his spare time he also directs executive education courses that combine mountain biking and leadership skills, and my Rides of Hope program for juvenile offenders.

Together with Noam Nisan, he developed Nand2Tetris   – an open-source approach for teaching applied computer science, described in a bestselling MIT Press book and in a recent TED talk . This project evolved into one of the first successful MOOCs.

In this session Professor Shimon Schocken will share his strategies for student success in mathematics driving self-learning, learning by doing, self-exploration and community-building. His latest K-12 math project involves students in interactive digital learning for early age mathematics:

  • Old vs New paradigm
    Standard-based learning, Versatile learning, Object-based learning, Non-nonsense learning, Spiral Learning
  • Alignment of curriculum, pedagogy and assessment
  • Targeted and scaffolded instruction
  • The value of summative and formative assessments
  • What are teachers doing today? Case studies
