Limited Capacity seats available

*This is Part 2 of an 8-hour session that takes place over two days - Sunday afternoon and Monday morning. 

The first five days of school can prepare students to "learn how to learn" and yield achievement dividends all year.   By preparing students to own  their learning and to manage tools and networks that will support them throughout the school year, we better prepare them for academic success.   Web literacy, student as tutorial designer, self assessment, peer to peer support and more will be  covered. A culture of empowered learning can help save teachers valuable time and inspire students.
