3 Keys to Authentic Leadership

How can we make an impact on those we teach while still improving ourselves? We’re going to talk about how we can develop the culture we want, enhance our leadership, and accomplish more in less time in the virtual world!

The 4 Laws of Learning

This session explores four rock-solid truths backed by research on how people learn. These laws apply to every subject area and grade level,
and if you follow them when planning lessons, you’ll be more likely to make some real learning happen for students.

From Engagement to Assessment: Bringing the NGSS to Life

Once you’ve engaged students with compelling science lessons, how do you assess their learning? To answer this question, you will explore a variety of assessment strategies that engage with and expand on student experience.

Anti-racist, Diverse and Inclusive Education

Take a look at bias and anti-racist education. This session will help you understand some of these concepts as it takes a practical look into making classrooms more inclusive, open, brave and diverse.

Creating Inclusive Classrooms

Discover activities that will allow you to co-create a class ethos with your students. Empower all learners as valuable members of the class, so that they feel a sense of belonging and become active participants in their own learning.

The NGSS Inquiry Cycle

Teachers will learn how to drive instruction through the lens of the Crosscutting Concepts. The host has partnered with Paul Andersen to design scaffolded CCC mini lessons that are easy to implement in the classroom.

Connecting Immersive Technology and NGSS Standards

Learn about how virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), 360 degree and 3D images and videos, head mounted displays, and other forms of immersive technology can be incorporated into standards-based science lessons.

Driving Instructions with the NGSS Crosscutting Concepts

Learn how to use the science inquiry cycle to drive instruction. Gain an understanding of how to teach all three dimensions (Crosscutting Concepts, Science & Engineering Practices, and Disciplinary Core Ideas) authentically and explicitly.

All sessions were originally broadcast live during Engage by Kognity, a virtual conference hosted on February 10, 2022. Feel free to share it with your co-workers!
