Unlimited available Engaging students through game-playing$0.00Elliot Fox-Povey offers this session aimed at grade 8-12 teachers interested in how well-facilitated, thoughtful use of drama-derived games in our classrooms can improve our students' empathy, mutual understanding, and respect. As well as improving relationships between students, game-playing can raise students' level of focus, engagement, and 'buy-in' to the other work of the class. I would like to share what I have learned studying and practicing this in secondary classrooms, by playing and talking. We will also discuss together our experiences and the future possibilities of game-playing with students in our diverse teaching situations. Come prepared to play and think, no special clothes or training required.
Unlimited available ADST and Paper Circuits$0.00Explore circuits with Devon Lawrence-- your students learn about circuits-- and make a card that lights up! This hands-on activity/lesson incorporates science, applied skills, design, and technology together. Paper circuits is an exciting lesson geared for learners in grades 4-7.
Unlimited available Part 1 (Revisited): Indigenous Pedagogy: Beyond Beads, Buttons, and Bannock!$0.00What is the difference between Indigenous Content and Indigenous Pedagogy? This session is designed to move Indigenous instruction from content, such as beads, buttons and bannock, to Indigenous methods of teaching. We will share the Indigenous Pedagogical Principle of “Me, Family, Village”. This principle has been adopted by many larger businesses, such as Google. This methodology will ignite curiosity, knowledge, and reflection. Further, it is fundamentally Indigenous, and aligns with the B.C. Curriculum Core Competencies, Learning Standards, and Formative Assessment.
Unlimited available Escape Room Escape$0.00Join Lisa for a fun-filled, fast-paced, madcap adventure into the world of Escape Rooms. Accept the challenge and see if you can solve the puzzles that will open the combination. You will be workshopping an Escape room kit that will be available to borrow from the DLC for your own class. Aligns with grade 6 to 12 curricular competencies and difficulty level.
Unlimited available Classroom Assessment and Feedback (K-12)$0.00Join Rich Ready for a conversation about assessment and feedback. Find out: What can I take off my plate so I can include more meaningful assessment for learning opportunities for my students? How can I embed formative assessment into instruction and learning? What effect could this have on student achievement? How do we assess the curricular competencies as well as content? If these are your questions, let’s work together to answer them.
Unlimited available The Mill Bay Nature School Experience$0.00Join Kim Ondryk, MBNS staff and students. Mill Bay Nature School models a way of being that honours the inherent wisdom of children and the ancient wisdom of the land. The school models the impact of courageous leadership and the power of families and educators to create community that puts children at the core and believes in learning through experiences. This way of being in a learning community is ancient, grounded in this land and is an invitation to all of us to come together for the benefit of our children. Come and listen to and learn from teachers, head learner and a student about Mill Bay Nature School's unique delivery model. Come with questions and an openness to learn how you might be able to take some of their teachings/models into your school/classroom.
Unlimited available Discover Digital: Exploring Online Resources$0.00What do we have? What’s new?
