Archive: Transforming Science Learning: Science is Social! Transform Your Classroom into a Learning Community, April 22, 2020 (12:00 pm ET)

For students to be able to make sense of the world, our classrooms must be transformed into learning communities where students are working together to share ideas, build understanding and reach consensus. We’ll share strategies for creating and supporting classroom norms that make classrooms (whatever the classroom looks like today) a space where students excitedly speak, listen and constructively critique other’s ideas to figure out phenomena.

Note: This web seminar was also be presented live on the same day (April 22) at 7:00 pm ET for those unable to watch it live at 12:00 pm ET.

Below are comments from individuals who attended the seminar:

  • "I love the videos and how different levels of communities where shown. This makes me feel better in trying it out in my class knowing that it is a process and it takes time."
  • "I really liked how interactive they were and how much they responded and answered the questions and comments in the chat. It made it much easier to understand and listen along and it made it more personal."
  • "Really appreciated the discussion about setting up the norms; it got me thinking about how to set up my next school year."
  • "The classroom short clips were important to show the learning concepts in operation. I also liked the fact they showed different age groups and how they interacted in the different settings."

A certificate of attendance was deposited into participants' account page for completing the evaluation form at the end of the program.
