PISA in Perspective: Cultivating Mathematical Mindsets

In this webinar, hosted by NCEE in collaboration with OECD, education experts discuss the 2022 PISA Mathematics results and their implications for U.S. education.

Register for next webinar in this series, Cultivating Creative Thinking, June 20 at 12pm ET

Hosted by NCEE and the OECD, this webinar from March 2024 featured a deep-dive into the PISA 2022 Mathematics data with OECD’s Andreas Schleicher, followed by a discussion with a panel of experts, moderated by Vicki Phillips:

  • Dr. Beth Schiavino-Narvaez: Chief Academic Officer at the Department of Defense Education Activity
  • Bob Hughes: Director of K-12 Education at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
  • Candice Jackson: Mathematics Master Teacher at Mann Learning Community, Detroit and the 2023-2024 Michigan Teacher of the Year

The discussion explored mathematics education worldwide, beginning with a deep dive into the findings of the 2022 PISA exam for mathematics:

  • U.S. Perspective: Exploring the current state of U.S. mathematics education, identifying areas for improvement and potential solutions;
  • Learning from Success: Discovering what we can learn from countries who performed well in math; and
  • Driving Progress: Discussing actionable strategies and tools to boost math performance, including professional development and high quality curriculum materials.

Watch the video above for the full discussion about what U.S. states and districts can do to give students the kind of math education that will prepare them to flourish in an increasingly data-driven, technology-infused world. Slides from Andreas Schleicher’s presentation are available here.

Join us in June for the third in our PISA in Perspective webinar series as we explore Creative Thinking, a new domain introduced in PISA 2022.

The Creative Thinking portion of PISA 2022 assessed students’ ability to come up with new ideas, evaluate those ideas, and improve upon them. This can lead students to original and unexpected solutions, deeper learning, and more robust use of imagination.

Andreas Schleicher, OECD Director for Education and Skills, will provide an overview of the PISA 2022 results for the Creative Thinking domain. Then, NCEE’s Vicki Phillips will moderate a panel discussion exploring the implications for educators and policymakers—including the kinds skills needed in a modern world, efforts to integrate creative thinking skills into curricula, and how creative thinking intersects with the evolving needs of employers and the future of work.

Don’t miss this opportunity to engage in a thought-provoking dialogue that shapes the future of education and prepares students for success in an ever-changing world.
