2019 Conference on Teaching Excellence
2019 Conference on Educational Leadership
Academic learning may be the explicit focus of schooling, but what teachers say, the values we express, the materials and activities we choose, and the skills we prioritize all influence how our students think, see themselves, interact with content and with each other, and assert themselves in the world. Social and emotional learning (SEL) is most familiar as compartmentalized programs or specific interventions, but all?learning is social and emotional. This institute will take a deliberate approach to this "hidden curriculum,", presenting a five-part model of SEL that's easy to integrate into everyday content instruction. This integrated approach to SEL empowers every teacher to help students develop skills that will serve them in the classroom and throughout their lives.
Future World is a showcase for the best future thinking in the realms of design, technology communications, transportation and more! This big idea land within Epcot ® offers students an opportunity to explore the influences that impact the developmental progress of technology. Setting the stage for the learning experience are activities and guided discussions that allow for an examination of the evolutionary nature of technology, its drivers and how it is used in their lives.
The learning adventure begins with students interacting with common everyday items, showcasing real-world examples of the many forms of energy, and how the movement of energy is often in the form of a wave. Students engage in discussion and hands-on activities that form the foundation of their exploration of sound and light at work at the Magic Kingdom® Park.
The Magic Kingdom® Park comes alive in a whole new way as students experience first-hand scientific principles at work at select park attractions! The learning experience kicks off with an experiment that establishes the utilization of a creative problem-solving method, commonly referred to as the scientific method, and the introduction to Sir Isaac Newton’s Laws of Motion.
The uniquely themed lands of Magic Kingdom® Park form the basis of this expedition of four distinctive eras of American history. This learning adventure guides students to discover the characteristics of rugged individualism, courage, optimism, tenacity and compassion that are at the heart of American culture.
