DATE: Wednesday, August 29th, 2018 | 6:30 – 8:30 PM
LOCATION: Clever, 1263 Mission St | San Francisco, CA 94103
Last year, EdSurge traveled to 44 cities around the country, convening educational leaders working in K-12 schools and districts to engage in real talk around personalized learning, workshop problems of practice and share their success stories. We published a collection of 80 stories, most of which were written by educators attending these events. With the ongoing support of the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative, we are continuing our journey across the United States. Our newly renamed Teaching & Learning Circles bring K-12 educators and school leaders together, support local education communities and create authentic experiences to share, listen and learn from one another. If you are a teacher, school leader or district administrator, please join us for an evening of thought-provoking dialogue around changing practices in education!
This Teaching & Learning Circle event will focus on how current K-12 educators are shifting teaching practices and capturing growth using a whole child approach to make learning better for students. How are educators integrating whole child tenets into their practice? Which tools and resources are successfully supporting educators in this work? What challenges are educators facing as they implement SEL? We'll discuss perceptions, motivations and approaches for shifting practices to create learning environments that integrate whole child educational domains.
It will be a night of collaboration and deep conversation, where the focus will be on sharing and learning from one other. You should walk away with new connections and a wealth of new ideas. Thanks to our friends at Clever, who have generously donated space for us to host this event!
EdSurge is hosting this event to learn from you, report on stories of change and look for potential writers interested in working with an editor to share their stories out on the EdSurge network.
Light appetizers and refreshments will be served.
Come connect with folks from all over the greater San Francisco Bay Area, enjoy great conversation and learn from other passionate educators!
