As you transitioned to online learning, did you notice your students' attention waning? Have you ever wondered how to meaningfully and creatively engage your students in the learning process? In GIFTED 36O: Increasing Student Engagement with Choices, Creativity, Complexity, and Curiosity we will explore a collection of ready to use activities for you to incorporate into your learning environment. These lessons are designed to help transform you and your students from being passive consumers of information to being creative producers of new content.
I get it. Times are uncertain right now. Professional learning may not be at the forefront of your mind, and the thought of sitting through a six hour PD seems like the last thing that you would want to be a part of. Yet, now is the perfect time to engage in creative learning and to rediscover the joys of being a teacher. GIFTED 36O is probably not like any other professional learning that you have experienced. Rather than presenting you with pre-recorded lectures, an endless supply of poorly designed PowerPoint slides, or tons of articles to read, this experience offers you a series of short video segments designed with your attention span in mind and a collection of student focused activities to promote curiosity and creativity.
