Step into your capacity to reinvent connection with students and families during this shift in our education paradigm.
Connection. As educators, our relationships with students and their families form the foundation of learning and growth. Our ability to connect with them is challenged as our schools close and our communities grapple with the difficulties presented by calls for physical distancing. We may be struggling to make sure our students and families:
- Have the supplies they need;
- Are able to make connections to previous learning;
- Know how to navigate the learning management systems we’re employing; and
- Receive the caring and support offered when they were present in our classrooms.
As we deal with these and other concerns, there is an opportunity to reinvent what connections with students and families look like. This series of free webinars is grounded in Appreciative Inquiry and will teach participants about two simple practices for supporting productivity, engagement, positivity, and connection.
You will walk away prepared to:
- Understand the mind science of connection.
- Fuel meaningful engagement.
- Communicate successfully with students and families.
- Ask questions that deepen connections among students and with curriculum.
- Frame complex problems to inspire creativity and innovative solutions.
