The Transforming Learning Summit Is Now A Monthly Speaker Series!
The Transforming Learning Summit creates an annual opportunity for practitioners, leaders and stakeholders within the state’s education community to come together to advance learning and share best practices. We were looking forward to bringing educators together once again this August, however we’ve recently made the decision to offer professional development that is more responsive, timely and supportive– the Transforming Learning Summit Speaker Series, supporting educators during transforming times.
These FREE, live virtual sessions will be hosted monthly by education experts from around the country and will address the urgent needs of educators and school administrators in the areas of student and educator mental health, equity and using technology to transform learning. We understand the challenges educators are facing right now and want to be responsive and supportive, which is why we are offering these live sessions on a monthly-basis at no-charge. (Recordings will be available for purchase.)
SPEAKER SERIES TOPICS INCLUDE…
Safeguarding the mental health of students and educators during these uncertain times
Empowering student voices and offering love, inclusion and support for a diverse student body
Technical how-tos, tips and tricks; modern approaches to advance learning; and enhancing student engagement during and after the pandemic
SPEAKER SERIES SCHEDULE
JANUARY 2021 SESSION
Tuesday, January 26th, 2021 from 3:30-4:30pm
We are on the brink of an educational revolution! The research shows that millennials are developing in a world that is quickly being transformed by technology and innovation. The world is transitioning swiftly as society continues to progress, but the education system is struggling to keep up. Now more than ever, we must understand it is going to take a joint effort to help all of our students succeed. In this keynote, Michael Bonner will highlight how student, teacher, parent, and community voices matter as we fight to propel our students to greatness!
