Disruptive Thinking in our Classrooms: Preparing Learners for their Future Webinar Series 

Featuring - Eric Sheninger
Author of Disruptive Thinking In our classrooms


Description:

The world has and continues to change in ways that are difficult to predict. Regardless of the forces at hand educators play a pivotal role in preparing students for success now and in the future. The best way to do this is to create a disruptive thinking culture in our classrooms and schools that future-proofs learning for ALL kids! It’s time to challenge the status quo when it comes to teaching and learning in our classrooms.  

Our learners and their futures in a bold new world depend on us.

Dates and session descriptions:

This webinar series is broken into four different sessions and will be rooted in the work of Eric Sheninger’s new book, Disruptive Thinking in our Classrooms.  

JULY 7 - SESSION 1: RE-THINKING “NORMAL  

  • Disruption is here to stay and this will most certainly influence the future world of work. Learners need a refined set of literacies to succeed no matter what is thrown at them. This session will dive into what this looks like, as well as how educators need to shift their mindset to prepare kids for an unpredictable world. Attendees will leave with specific action steps to lead change in their classrooms and schools to create a new normal.  

JULY 22 - SESSION 2: RE-THINKING LEARNING  

  • Learning needs to be an active process that combines instructional and pedagogical techniques that are research-based. These should both challenge kids to think and apply what they are learning in relevant and meaningful ways aligned to real-world problems. During this session, participants will be exposed to specific strategies that will help students to develop critical competencies to become disruptive thinkers.  

AUGUST 4 - SESSION 3: RE-THINKING THE LEARNER  

  • Learning is a process, not an event. Thus, it is imperative to create experiences that are equitable and meet the diverse needs of all kids. During this session, attendees will dive into personalized strategies such as blended learning with an emphasis on station rotation, choice boards, playlists, and the flipped classroom. They will also learn how to create environments reflective of the real world, both physical and virtual, that will allow learners to fully employ disruptive thinking.  

AUGUST 11 - SESSION 4: RE-THINKING OUR MINDSET  

  • We often teach the way we were taught and lead the way we were led. A disruptive-thinking culture relies on our ability to leverage outlier practices in ways that are more beneficial to students. During this session, attendees will dive into these such as grading, homework, feedback, and reflection to drive better outcomes. They will also learn to shift their mindset in ways that builds priceless relationships with students and colleagues alike.
