In this session we will utilize a detailed discussion protocol that provides concrete, specific 'look fors' and 'think abouts' that help educators move lessons toward deeper learning, greater student agency, more authentic work, and rich technology infusion. The 4 Shifts Protocol is being used by schools around the world to help them translate 21st century learning initiatives into day-to-day classroom practice. In this session we will use actual lesson plans and video exemplars as we practice using the protocol. Participants will walk away with numerous tips and strategies for implementing the protocol in their schools and classrooms.
10 minutes - Introduction to the challenge (interactive whole group conversation)
60 to 150 minutes (depending on session format) - redesigning lessons and units together using the protocol - this is active, hands-on, small group work and will include numerous opportunities to ask question, apply to local practice, etc.
15-20 minutes - Tips, strategies, and suggestions (interactive whole group conversation)
