Pacific Navigator
August 2011 | Volume 2 | Issue 3
PEC Website

Thank you to Pohnpei for successfully hosting the 27th Pacific Educational Conference (PEC).

More than 900 educators from approximately 20 countries participated in 165 presentations and plenary sessions.

Educators from the Pacific region and around the world shared instructional strategies for contextual and culturally grounded learning. Assessment and evaluation; Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education; teacher training technology; math; and climate change were just a few of the subjects discussed at this year’s PEC. We were all energized to bring home new learnings and innovations to classrooms and agencies. We are currently building on the momentum created by educators and others at the PEC to practically and coherently address the ever-changing education needs of the region.

We thank our many contributors to this issue of the Pacific Navigator and believe that you, our readers, will find its contents both useful and enjoyable.
