Although schools are moving forward, change is always something that many struggle with. Focusing on an innovator’s mindset and our “why”, this workshop is meant for leaders to help others within their organization not only accept change, but to embrace it and create more powerful learning opportunities for our learners. It is not focused on the “how to” of technology, but is more focused on the conversations that will help staff move forward in a way they will be excited, yet feel supported in their journey.
Some highlights from the event include:
- Focus on how to move from “pockets of innovation” to a “culture of innovation”.
- Identify ways in creating equitable opportunities for powerful learning at the highest levels in your school district.
- Develop a plan specific to your own school or district’s needs to develop a culture of innovation.
- Create “your story” and either create or refine your “vision” to connect and empower all stakeholders.
- Develop a “strength-based” focus for meaningful growth for all learners in your organization.
Although the event has many key objectives, the focus is to tailor the event specifically to the needs and focus areas of the group. As we look to developing the “personalization of learning” within schools, this event will model that same “personalization” for the participants.
