Eddie Woo in Adelaide
Tuesday 26 June 2018
Workshop #4 - Teachers
Last Day to Register - Wednesday 20 June 2018
CESA in partnership with Australia Day Council of South Australia is hosting Eddie Woo at Sacred Heart College - Senior Campus. This workshop is designed for teachers and curriculum leaders.
Eddie Woo is Australia's most famous mathematics teacher. He is the head mathematics teacher at Cherrybrook Technology High School, the largest secondary school in New South Wales. Eddie started posting videos online in 2012 for a student who was sick with cancer and missing a lot of school. Before long, he was sharing the videos across the country and beyond. Wootube now boasts more than 100,000 subscribers and has attracted more than eight million views worldwide and counting. With infectious enthusiasm, the father-or-three's unique and caring approach to teaching, destigmatises mathematics as an inaccessible and difficult subject. Outside his high school classroom, Eddie is a volunteer facilitator with University of Sydney's Widening Participation and Outreach program and has motivated more than 1,400 students from disadvantaged backgrounds. A brilliant student, Eddie could have chosen any field, but in defiance of social convention and his parents opted for teaching. Today, he is using his vocation to 'pay it forward' and make education equitable for all.
