Have you ever wanted to peek into another classroom to observe how a teacher addresses different obstacles to student collaboration or approaches used to help students develop listening and questioning skills? In this recorded edWebinar, we examine strategies you can apply in your own classroom immediately to support student development of 21st century skills by analyzing real examples of student learning and insights from experienced teachers.
During the recorded presentation, you will be introduced to LEGO® Education’s FREE, interactive professional development platform. LEGO® Education’s PD Platform is grounded in teacher competencies related to student learning outcomes and is full of actual classroom video segments highlighting students engaged in hands-on STEAM learning as well as reflections from teachers about the learning process.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders as well as college educators working with preservice teachers.
