Personalized Learning. Reimagined.

October 7, 2021 @ 8-10am PST/11am-1pm EST

A new school year is upon us and we are tackling existing truths and new realities. The effects of the pandemic remain largely unknown on students’ educational progress. This means we must reimagine education for each student, and put the person back in personalized learning. We must shift away from teacher-directed lessons towards experiences that build every student’s ownership of their learning.

Join us for this livestream event as we reimagine Personalized Learning for students, teachers and leaders.

Virtual Events Square Graphics (8)A Systems Level Approach to Schooling Loss

April 13, 2021 

Educators face systems-level challenges due to the pandemic. This workshop introduces the first part of our approach to addressing schooling loss. More often referred to as learning loss, we focus on the whole-school systems that need to be addressed. When the challenge is ambiguous, there are two initial priorities: getting a clearer view of your situation and imagining multiple pathways forward.

This two-hour workshop will introduce new ideas, allow for individual reflection, collaboration in breakout rooms, and planning time. Participants will leave with the start of a roadmap and the roles that might drive this work.

Strategic Planning Responsive Strategic Planning in Uncertain Times

November 5 - 6, 2020-

This Spring and Summer have been very different from what any of us could have expected. With the rapid changes and influx of information, the responsiveness of your strategic plan has likely been tested this year! You have likely had to pivot and direct your energy to return planning. This rapid planning process is likely to stick around. There is so much we cannot predict and responsive planning helps you stay nimble no matter what you encounter.  At Education Elements, we believe the process of planning  is just as important, if not more, than the plan itself. Engaging your stakeholders throughout the process leads to a plan that is a launching pad for inspired work in your organization. This one and a half days of virtual learning opportunities will introduce responsive strategic planning through hands-on activities and helpful resources that you will be able to apply back at your districts.

August 5, 2020
