  • Connect students with authentic audiences outside the four walls of your classroom

What You Will Learn

During this innovative workshop, educators will discover how to level-up their teaching by creating a classroom environment that boosts student creativity, critical thinking,  and communication skills. School should be a place that kids want to be, not have to be.

 

In this four-part workshop, we will provide participants with:

Part 1: Understanding the “Why”: The Need for Innovation in Education  

Part 2: Reimagining Assessment: PBL In The Elementary Classroom

Part 3: Empowering Students with Voice and Choice

Part 4: Boosting Engagement by Giving Students Authentic Audiences

 

Participants will discover how to develop global citizenship and foster collaboration within the elementary classroom. Educators will leave this workshop with an abundance of resources and ideas that they can immediately implement in their classroom to make a major impact on student learning. Our goal is to get kids excited about learning and create experiences that will stay with them well beyond the time they leave our classrooms.

 

This workshop will highlight best-practice strategies of rethinking assessment with project-based learning, amplifying students voice, and creating authentic audiences for student learning. Educators will leave this workshop refreshed and excited about the possibilities for transforming their classroom into a powerful learning machine.
