Creativity and Instruction: Inspiring 21st Century Learners - $119
June 24th, 2014, 8:00am - 3:30pm
Sir Ken Robinson, in his 2008 TED Talk, speaks about how we, as educators, are preparing students for a world we can't even imagine. How do we do that within our current pedagogical frameworks? It is time to rethink the traditional classroom model to meet the needs of 21st century learners. We don't know what the world will look like in the next 15 years but we know that students who are autonomous, independent, active producers will be ready to think and work in an ever changing environment.

Differentiation Practical and Possible - $119
June 25th, 2014, 8:00am - 3:30pm
As educators, we know the importance of understanding each child as an individual and that differentiation is the ideal method of instruction, especially for gifted learners. But how do you make it manageable? Fortunately, after years of developing differentiation strategies in our own classrooms, we are here to show you it is easier than you might think. Whether it's differentiating content, process, or product, practical strategies abound for making differentiation a reality in your classroom. Registration Closed
