A free webinar

Living in the UK I've been in lockdown for the past 7 weeks - and while in some respects it has driven me crazy, it has also given me time to do many things that would not have been possible before.  One of these is a free webinar that is being organised as part of TIES (The Inquiry Educators Summit) which is happening this coming weekend, 16th and 17th May.  There is a stellar lineup of presenters and keynote speakers and I'm honoured and excited to be part of this.

Here are some of the things I'll be discussing:

  • The importance of engaging and rigorous content
  • Higher Order Thinking Skills in Bloom’s Taxonomy and the SAMR Model
  • Why we should not be asking students to do “tell about” summary projects
  • Redefining the task to focus on rigour and a return on learning
  • Different types of communication
  • Adding more rigour to informational projects
  • Going beyond technology to focus on craftsmanship
