Making Authentic Connections for Lasting Impact
Students become vested in their own learning when teachers infuse authentic, real-world situations with learning experiences. Making authentic connections between critical content and students' own lives deepens the impact and long-term retention of a learning experience. Give teachers a full toolbox of simple strategies that employ 21st Century skills, themes, and web-based resources to connect what students are learning with their everyday lives.
At this workshop
Authentic connections challenge students to reflect on how their learning applies to real world situations by exploring real-life issues in their local and global communities. At this institute, participants will examine digital age themes at the elementary and secondary levels, explore strategies for integrating global themes, and evaluate web-based resources for making global connections.
Participants will leave with a comprehensive toolbox of strategies for infusing daily real-world connections through role-playing exercises, problem-based activities, case studies, and more.
Our workshops focus on evidence-based approaches that can be used by teachers and leaders immediately. Flexible delivery options—ranging from face-to-face onsite institutes to self-paced online learning—help simplify and personalize professional learning for all stakeholders. Schedule a workshop that fits your unique time and budget needs.
