This dynamic, full-day session included two parts.
Part 1 Creating a New Culture of Teaching and Learning: Where the Common Core Meets Digital Literacy
Four school teams presented strategies they have used to promote digital literacy and the Common Core.
Part 2 From Co-blab-oration to Co-labor-ation: Developing PLCs that Actually Improve Student Achievement
Team learned how to engage in the real work of high-functioning Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) that actually improve teaching and learning.
What a powerful example of the benefit of true co-labor-ation. Participants worked within and across school teams to engage in practices that are actually improving teaching, learning and leading. Here is what one of the principals had to say: "Thank you for facilitating the PLC workshop. You certainly are correct in saying today is an opportunity. We are leaving with some great ideas & inspired to make some improvements."
