For those who've been waiting ... it's here!
Spring Workshop with educator, Heidi Siwak*
"It's about more than the technology!"
Integrative Thinking, Knowledge Building, Inquiry
This workshop is designed to shift educators from teachers to facilitators where deep thinking, creativity, collaboration, communication and problem-solving lay at the heart of classroom practice. We'll connect pedagogy to practical strategies that you can begin using immediately to transform classroom practice.
Learn how to weave together integrative thinking, knowledge building, inquiry and elements of design thinking to create dynamic, highly engaging environments that cause students to think deeply.
Discover how to build a thinking toolkit that students can draw upon to solve highly complex problems.
After 5 years of experimenting and testing ideas in my classroom, I am thrilled to begin mentoring educators in a more direct way. I'll share with you many lesson ideas, stategies, tips, and techniques that allow a completely different type of learning to surface.
I look forward to seeing you on May 23!
Lunch is included!
