About this learning opportunity

Students experience deeper learning when they are provided with engaging, challenging and meaningful tasks. If we want students to be problem solvers and critical thinkers, we need to provide them with the opportunities to practice, receive feedback, and reflect on these skills.

In this session, we will explore makerspaces, STEM activities, assistive technology tools, coding, virtual reality, robotics and other exciting tools and ideas. When implemented, we can reach every student. Differentiated instruction becomes fluid, manageable and robust.

This session will provide you with many different tools, strategies, and learning activities that you can immediately bring to your classroom or school. Leave with a restocked teaching toolkit, regardless of budget or school setting. The goal of this session is to ignite your excitement; helping you create powerful and engaging learning experiences for your students.

This learning opportunity is being provided through funding from Alberta Education.
