Join an elementary school teacher, high school student, and college student to consider the strengths teachers at each of those levels bring to the table. What could teachers at other levels learn from each other?
During each of the six breakout sessions throughout the weekend, a large number of conversations will take place. This site will help you organize your plan for the weekend and provide the relevant information for each conversation. After signing in, search through the conversations below and mark the sessions you are interested in to populate your personal schedule on the right (or below if on your mobile phone).
Demonstration of culturally relevant project based learning with students ranging from 8th grade to 12th grade in both district and charter schools.
When students engage with educational games they can learn through play. But, when students create games, they learn even more. At Science Leadership Academy there are many student projects that revolve around game creation. In this session we will discuss the different types of game projects that students can do, and hope that you can walk away from this session with a prototype of a game, or project, that you can take back to your class.
In this conversation, we will discuss the process of knowledge constitution in tradition and AI-driven writing practices. Drawing on Writing to Learn research, I will explore how human beings develop new knowledge and insight through first and second learning processes in the writing process. First, writers learn through memory work and data retrieval. Second, writers learn through sentence and paragraph creation. Thus, if our students turn over increasing amounts of sentence and paragraph generation to AI, they run the risk of missing out on key opportunities to learn. And yet, we cannot hide from AI. Know this fact, we can begin to develop a more "conscious" method of use.
Join us as we listen to famous songs from the American folk and blues traditions and then write our own songs in response.
