WISSIT Educator Conference 2017: Close, Deep, Slow, Rich



On Wednesday, August 2, 2017, Ron Ritchhart, Principal Investigator, Project Zero, Harvard Graduate School of Education spoke at the 2017 WISSIT Educator Conference. At Project Zero we believe that art, objects and artifacts are a powerful medium for learning. They can engage, inspire and create opportunities for deep exploration and connection. For educators wishing to tap into the potential of art, objects and artifact to advance students? learning, whether in the museum or in the classroom, it is often useful to have tools to structure students? learning about, with, from and through these created works. Thinking routines provide just such structures by scaffolding and directing students’ experience, helping them to look closely and giving them the tools to dig deeply. In this interactive plenary session, we will explore four thinking routines well suited to connecting classrooms, curriculum and the museum collection.
