Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Participants will learn how to nurture leadership skills within students while developing math comprehension skills through an immersive experience. Participants will be shown how to engage students through creative storytelling, gamification, project-based learning, and technology. Teachers will be able to take the lessons within the session and immediately apply it to their classroom learning environments.

This session will include a Google Slides presentation of resources for attendees to immediately implement within their classrooms. Participants will be shown first-hand specific examples of teacher and student- made resources using platforms such as Zoom, Google/Microsoft tools, Eduprotocols, and FlipGrid. Participants will be shown how to adapt their lessons for online, blended, and in-person learning classrooms.

Additionally, participants will be shown how creating engaging and positive learning experiences within the classroom developed an inclusive classroom culture and developed skills within creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration. Evidence of success will be shown through examples of my students’ work, data, and videos.
