Ask any teacher what’s in short supply and that is most likely what you’ll hear. We’d love to meet, to collaborate, to learn something new, to reflect, and to capitalize on our own strengths, but finding the time to make that happen feels like a feat of mythical proportions. Yet, an opportunity awaits! The Rodel Teacher Council has created a day dedicated to helping teachers grow in their understanding of personalized learning, and working alongside colleagues who are currently practicing this method.


On February 27, the Rodel Teacher Council will host a free Personalized Learning Workshop at St. Georges High School from 8 a.m. til 12 p.m. You’re invited to join me and the rest of the Teacher Council by registering here for free. After a hot breakfast served by the St. Georges culinary arts students, attendees will choose from a variety of sessions highlighting innovative practices from teachers across the state. Session options will include:

  • Learning Schoology tips and tricks from a teacher expert
  • Participating in a BRINC model lesson (a rare chance to experience personalized learning through the lens of a student)
  • Observing how to run a Data Day (an opportunity for students to track, analyze, and reflect on their own performance)
  • Performing in the kitchen with St. George’s chef and culinary arts instructor, Jermaine Williams (a delicious blended learning demonstration for teachers of any discipline!)
  • Experiencing new learning technology apps like Socrative, Kahoot, and Plickers
  • Feeling empowered to lead from their classroom at a session dedicated to teacher leadership
  • Learning about the free Smarter Balanced Digital Library from teachers who helped to create it
  • Learning new strategies for a variety of subject areas such as math stations, modernizing the Socratic Seminar with peer feedback forms and word clouds, and so much more

DSC_0054There will also be an opportunity for attendees to share their experiences and to network with others in a unique space called Ed Camp Lite. In this designated location, attendees can share experiences, collaborate on lessons, and ask others for advice. Together, teachers can find inspiration. Participants will receive three clock hours for attending.

We hope you’ll join us for an epic day of discovering new ways to structure the school setting, creating environments that work best for students and teachers. Click here to register! Teachers who attend will be eligible to receive three clock hours towards their continuing license renewal.
