Welcome to our Innovation Boot Camp @ FI 2016 experience where we encourage participants to build their capacity around digitally enhanced curriculum and instruction through a rigorous and empowering full day of learning, growing, and reflecting.
Digital transitions can be a lot to swallow and this year's Boot Camp is designed to break down the barriers and encourage educators to "TAKE CHANCES, MAKE MISTAKES & GET MESSY"! Participants will:
- EXPERIENCE, understand & apply student-centered pedagogy that can be made rigorous, differentiated using project, problem, makerspace or inquiry based approaches (attitude & skills)
- DIFFERENTIATE technical content & concepts appropriate for all learning profiles & PROVIDE opportunities for blended learning (attitude & skills).
- ALIGN teaching practices with http://goo.gl/qg30M4 (behavior & skills)
"It's not about the technology... but about the learning and teaching."
The Friday Institute of Educational Innovations' Professional Learning and Leading Collaborative (PL2C) has hosted the Leading and Learning Summer Institute or "Boot Camp" since 2008 to support the growing need for rigorous and on the ground professional development needed for educators implementing digital learning in their schools and districts. This unique training emphasizes that technology is not the driving force of digital initiatives, but rather a deep understanding of the intersection of curricular standards and sound pedagogy through the use of content-specific and appropriate technology resources and applications.
Our coaches are educational leaders who have extensive experience in strategic planning, leadership support and development, data-driven decision-making and professional development planning and design – all as they relate to digital learning programs. All the professional development designed by the Friday Institute's PL2C is customized and tailored to fit educators' current needs in the classroom. Check out the PLLC Team
