Teacher Professional Learning Designed with Your Busy Life in Mind
6 Social offers you hands-on professional learning you take from the privacy and comfort of home.
You work collaboratively with small groups of peers, building new relationships and sparking new ideas.
The program consists of four modules, each of which involves 3 weekly 75 minute online sessions.
The modules are designed to give you tools and resources you can put to work right away in the classroom.
The modules are sequential, but you are able to progress as far as your time and other commitments permit.
Thanks to the support of Ontario Centres of Excellence, the first 250 teachers who sign up for the introductory module will receive it for free.
Module 1 (Free)
Begins October 15- 26
In order to implement an effective solution, you must first dive deep into the problem. We will brainstorm challenges in education that you as a teacher are facing. What do you care about? Are other problems caused by this problem? Who does the problem effect? This is your opportunity to connect with other teachers and receive tools to use in your classroom to honour the students’ voice
Before we decide on the solution, we must first discover and investigate the current solutions that address the problem(s). What works? What doesn't? Identify the gaps and make recommendations. Are there current solutions that exist that need to make some slight changes or do new solutions need to be created? Through this discovery we will then do an Ideation Solution Session.
You will feel confident and excited to begin building and prototyping your solution for some of the problems that you face in education. We will collaborate to model how to investigate & validate your assumptions by asking questions, getting feedback and developing a solution that is actually manageable to implement in your community. Get creative, with a variety of tools, brainstorm and connect with others to begin creating something incredible!
It’s time to start sharing your solution through storytelling tools. We will introduce easy to use media creation tools that you can bring to your teaching practice . It takes a community to make an idea a reality and to continue building your solution. Together, we will host an Online Community Showcase, where you have the opportunity to inspire others by showcasing your solutions to gain support, mentorship and launch your idea.
A complete set of tools to power your classroom
6 Social has researched and tested a number of apps, mostly free ones, that support collaborative learning and documentation of learning. You'll learn to use these hands-on and learn how they can immediately boost engagement in your classroom.
