    Session 1

    LEVERAGING LEARNING WITH CYCLES

    Learners need consistency and routines. A Learning Cycle provides a clear pathway for collaboration, reflection, and independent learning. This session will focus on how we can break down the learning cycle and disambiguate the learning flow in a hybrid learning environment.

    FOUNDATIONAL NETWORK LITERACIES IN TODAY’S LEARNING ENVIRONMENT (AND TOMORROW’S!)

    There are key foundational literacies that will continue to shape what it means to be a learner today. When students gain proficiency to learn in a connected world, they gain access to so called ‘future-ready’ capacities. Network literacies underpin every part of the learning cycle, and they are the momentum that will propel learning forward.

    LEVERAGING COMMUNITY FOR COLLABORATION (STUDY BUBBLES)

    No matter where learners are learning from, they still need (and deserve) to belong to your school community. Creating a culture of collaboration is critically important in a hybrid learning model. Having students understand how to work collaboratively in remote groups is an essential skill needed for the future workforce.
