During this edWebinar, teachers learn methods of increasing student engagement by building strong, supportive classroom communities. We examine daily and weekly routines that use time with little benefit to student learning. Viewers are introduced to tactics including:

  • Low-prep methods of introducing project-based lessons and units that decrease teacher workload while improving student learning outcomes and engagement
  • Assorted activities that eliminate the need for compliance-based systems and replace them with equitable classroom agreements

Viewers leave this session with immediately actionable tips and tactics that they can implement in their classrooms in order to lighten teacher workload and increase student engagement in both physical and virtual environments.

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to teachers, school and district leaders, and education technology leaders of all grade levels.
