Modern educators work extremely hard to prepare young people for the future, but how much of teacher practice is based on evidence and how much is based on myths or fallacies? In this webinar, we will consider the elements of truth and the large doses of myth and falsehood inherent in some of the most common ideas current in education today. Using Daisy Christodoulou’s ‘7 Myths About Education’ (2013) as a starting point, we will consider how to see through the myths and understand what teachers should dedicate their attention to instead.

What you'll learn

  • To be able to identify the myths and falsehoods embedded in much of modern education discourse.
  • To understand the research evidence that demonstrates the inaccuracies of those ideas.
  • To know what the research evidence from cognitive psychology tells us about how teachers should focus their energy instead.

Target audience

This webinar will be most helpful for classroom practitioners and school leaders.
