Webinar

Building a Curious School
Presented by Bryan Goodwin
Date: Tuesday, June 2, 2020 in AUSTRALIA | Duration approximately an hour
Time: 8:30AM (AEST)

Curiosity and motivation to learn are powerful predictors of student success―more powerful even than IQ, persistence, or teacher quality. Yet the longer students stay in school, the less curiosity and motivation they demonstrate. So, what if we were to focus on building schools that ignite student curiosity? Might everything else get easier . . . and more joyful? Learn from research and real-life success stories about how schools have “flipped the script” on improvement efforts—not by forcing rigid compliance with mandates or implementation of external programs, but by unleashing what’s already inside everyone—students and teachers alike—and waiting to come out: curiosity.

Webinar

Simply Stations, Grades K-4: What Does the Rest of the Class Do During Small Groups?
Presented by Debbie Diller

Literacy work stations, when done well, can solve both of these problems—and more. Literacy stations provide partner practice using what teachers already have in their classrooms. During her presentation, Debbie will show teachers how to create and sustain meaningful, engaging literacy stations that grow and change as their students develop new skills, and as instructional time shifts. Plus, teachers will be reminded how to make confident decisions based on what they know about their kids and about good literacy instruction—so they can move away from quick-fix ideas like worksheets or pre-made centers found online.

Collective Teacher Efficacy in the Time of COVID-19
Presented by Jenni Donohoo

To improve student learning, collective teacher efficacy is the most powerful influence a school leader can foster. At a time when efficacy beliefs may be waning based on challenges posed from COVID-19, it’s important to consider the role of collective efficacy in relation to educator’s capacity to confront and adapt to the consequences of the pandemic. It’s ever so important to capitalize on the sources of efficacy so that we can harness its power and remind educators that together we have what it takes to overcome challenges.
Participants will learn about:
• the relationship between collective efficacy and a community’s adaptive capacity to deal with challenges
• how efficacy beliefs are formed
• how to develop individual and collective efficacy during and after COVID-19.

Strengths-Based Mathematics Instruction: Five Teaching Turnarounds for K-6
Presented by Beth McCord Kobett and Karen S. Karp

What if we were regularly told only what we don’t do well? How can we expect our students, many who face the same messages, to continue to persevere? What if we transformed our classrooms to strengths-based environments that cultivate the assets that our students bring each and every day? These are the very issues Kobett and Karp will address in this webinar and how by shifting your attention from students’ weaknesses to their strengths you can maximize understanding and turnaround instruction.

Visible Learning for Social Studies: Designing Student Learning for Conceptual Understanding
Presented by Julie Stern

How do we maximize precious time to ensure that students grasp enough to prepare them for informed civic life? The discipline of social studies is far more than memorizing dates and facts. It involves the skillful ability to conduct investigations, analyze sources, place events in historical and cultural context, and synthesize various points of view, while recognizing our own biases. Join Julie Stern in this webinar to understand how using the right approach at the right time can maximize student learning.

Supporting Educator Resilience During Shelter in Place
Presented by Ricky Robertson

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted schools across the nation and contributed to a general sense of uncertainty and anxiety. As we shelter in place, school is no longer the source of stability and connection that many of our students rely upon. During this time, educators play a critical role in supporting the social-emotional well-being of their students. However, that responsibility carries with it considerable stress and emotional labor for our teachers. In this webinar, we will explore ways to care for our well-being as we support others through this challenging time. Participants will learn strategies for self-care, bite size resilience, and building supportive virtual communities for educators.

Reclaiming Personalized Learning
Presented by Paul Emerich France

For teacher and consultant Paul France, at first technology-powered personalized learning seemed like a panacea. But after three years spent at a personalized learning start-up and network of microschools, he soon realized that such corporate-driven individualized learning initiatives do more harm than good, especially among our most vulnerable students. In this webinar, France spends time unpacking the many myths surrounding personalized learning and codifying a new vision that puts equity and our own humanity at the center.

The Communication Effect: How to Enhance Learning by Building Ideas and Bridging Information Gaps
Presented by Jeff Zwiers

In too many classrooms, instruction suffers from large amounts pseudo-communication, which is the use of language to obtain external rewards (e.g., points, praise, stars, grades). This type of communication tends to focus on short-term memorization and accumulation of short answers. Authentic communication, on the other hand, is the use of language to build up key ideas and engage in productive collaborative arguments. This type of communication focuses on long-term depth and construction of core concepts in a discipline. In this webinar, Jeff Zwiers describes how to improve all dimensions of learning (content, cognition, language, social, agency, etc.) by enhancing instruction with three main features of authentic communication.

CLARITY: What Matters Most in Learning, Teaching, and Leading
Presented by Lyn Sharratt

Bringing Clarity to the elements that sharpen precision-in-practice ensures knowing “where to next.” Gaining Clarity is dependent on a set of interrelated concepts deployed within an evidence-proven framework and implemented consistently and reflectively across all systems, schools, and classrooms. Join Lyn Sharratt in this three-part webinar, in which she describes how Clarity can be realized in 1. Learning, 2. Teaching, and 3. Leading. Lyn promises no silver bullets; after all, there are none. The real power of data, she insists, resides in the “aha” outcomes of collaborative conversations with, and ‘roll-up-your sleeves’ work by ALL stakeholders, focused on students’ faces, as data today is instruction tomorrow.

Know Thy Impact
John Hattie | Sept 2019

Evidence lies at the heart of Visible Learning. In fact, one of the key starting points of Visible Learning involves school leaders having robust discussions about what impact means in their schools, which includes an understanding of where students are in their learning, what progress looks like, and how to determine next steps. Essentially, “knowing thy impact” means connecting what educators do with what learners learn. In this webinar, Professor John Hattie will discuss why it's important to “know thy impact” and how to implement a cycle of inquiry, evaluation, and implementation into your school.
