Bringing play into the school day isn’t just important for young learners but is also beneficial to older students. Play brings out creativity, facilitates the exploration of interests, and engages students in activities of their choice without academic pressures. “NavTime” is a structured activity time that provides students with the ability to play, have fun in a mentored space, and explore their individual interests while building relationships.

In this recorded edWebinar, you learn how your school can create this opportunity for students (and teachers) to bring joy into their day. Dr. Derek Fialkiewicz, Principal, and Heidi Carr, Teacher, both from Clark County School District in Nevada, share:

  • Why they implemented NavTime at their middle school
  • Ways you can and/or your school can implement NavTime
  • The benefits to all stakeholders

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 teachers, librarians, school and district leaders, and education technology leaders.
