Scaffolding collaboration for primary students

Tuesday, Jan 19
3:30 PM ET

Collaboration promotes higher-level thinking as well as boosting student self-esteem. Scaffolding SEL strategies into collaborative learning experiences helps students connect their actions to their thoughts and begin to develop the skills they need to participate in culturally responsive group discussions. Join us to talk about how collaboration benefits primary students and learn SEL informed strategies for introducing collaborative work to primary age learners.

Leading professional learning in 2021:How to create a supportive learning environment for educators

Tuesday, Jan 19
5:00 PM ET | 3:00 MST
Active Presentation: 45 min
Leading professional learning in one of Canada’s largest school divisions is challenging at the best of times, let alone during a pandemic. Throughout 2020, our team dealt with not only huge budget cuts but also the challenge of sending 125,000 students home to finish the year learning from home.
 
We learned valuable lessons that will shape future decisions in the CBE.
 
Join Steve Clark as he shares his most important lessons as well as the big and small successes and celebrations that his team has experienced over the last year.

Creating safe and collaborative spaces to develop student voice


Wednesday, Jan 20
3:30 PM ET
Active Workshops: 45 min

Collaboration doesn't come naturally to students, but actively teaching them this skill promotes deeper learning and strengthens their self-esteem. Using trauma informed SEL practices to create safe classroom spaces allows the development of student voice and enriches collaborative discussions.

Participants will learn about how collaboration boosts learning and how it can be intregrated into instruction in a way that promotes student voice as they develop their collaborative problem solving skills.

Creating opportunities for deep collaboration and higher-order thinking


Thursday, Jan 20
3:30 PM ET
Active Workshop: 45 min

Collaborative problem solving not only promotes higher level thinking but is a skill sought after by many employers. And yet PISA 2018 showed that only a small percentage of our students graduate with these skills.

This workshop will talk about the pedagogy behind collaborative learning, as well as the SEL skills that elevate and enrich collaboration. We will share activities that can easily be worked into everyday instruction to develop this skill in high school students.
