In a world that changes so quickly, how can educators remain relevant and up-to-date on current trends when our plates are already so full? And as we strive to learn about innovative practices how can we remain resilient? This session will provide inspiration as well as some practical ideas as we explore both the quest for learning and the need for self-care.
So much has happened since school closures began in March 2020. And when our students return to school, we will meet them where they are, which will differ by leaps and bounds for each learner… academically and emotionally. The great uncertainty ahead requires us to have a plan for re-entry. We will discuss creating a Growth Mindset Road Map as a starting point. What does this mean? This means creating a common language that revolves around dealing with change, overcoming obstacles, and the need to learn new skills. This map includes setting up how to address racism, equity issues in digital learning, and how the pandemic has accentuated many mental health issues for our families. Regardless of our mode of delivery, we need to create a foundation for students and teachers that provides a foundation and spring board for both staff and student learning.
