SHIFTING TO LEARNERS AT THE CENTER

The Center is holding a Summer Convening that will host student and educator presentations in an exploration of how we might re-imagine education.
CREATING SCHOOLS OF THE FUTURE
To make this Summer Convening meaningful for all attendees, we plan to have educational practitioners share their knowledge and experiences through hands-on sessions that model philosophies and practices from personalized learning, CBE, standards-based assessment and reporting (SBAR), blended, STEAM, work-based learning, community partnerships, and project-/problem-based learning (PBL), including the following strands:
Time is Variable: Students advance upon demonstrated proficiency
Deeper Learning: Students’ demonstration of competencies requires transfer of knowledge across content areas and/or beyond the classroom.
Authentic Assessment: Students engage in assessment as a meaningful and positive learning experience.
Just-in-Time-Supports: Students receive rapid, personalized support based on individual learning needs.
Anytime/Anywhere Learning (for adults and students): Students’ learning is validated regardless of when, where or how they acquire and/or demonstrate the learning.
Registration fee is $50. Registration fee includes lunch.
One relicensure credit is available for $35
CALL FOR SESSIONS
We are looking for representation from PK-20, including students. Interested individuals/groups should fill out a session proposal.
