SLA Students and Teachers will lead a roundtable discussion on inquiry and project based learning.
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).
Students have SUPERPOWERS. Often, these powers are hidden by the structures and constraints of school. How can we work, as educators, to unleash students' hidden talents and dreams? This session will engage you in interactive activities, games, and conversations to explore the world of student-driven learning.
Most professional development is geared toward supporting our students, but what are ways can we support ourselves? By introducing practices such as meditation and mindful awareness, we will explore how to manage our stresses to be more present for students. Discussion will also include how to share these practices school-wide.
We describe the work done to prepare for a successful 1-1 laptop roll-out this year at The Baldwin School. We will identify the biggest challenges we faced, describe how we faced them, and encourage audience members to share their own strategies.
