Presented at the Riding the Wave Conference in Gimli, Manitoba. May 2017.
In two words, you remember the whole story: glass slipper, sour grapes, cold porridge. You remember more than facts, you recall relationships & deeper connections between characters. Some of the powerful ways we leverage digital for deeper learning includes challenging sources of information (fake news), exploring bias (developing empathy through multiple perspectives), and creating powerful feedback loops that foster deeper learning.
Powerful narratives, in a word or two, bring to mind a wealth of ideas & relationships; more than just facts. How can we find stories that make our teaching sticky and help kids find, and more importantly tell, stories that make learning stick? This workshop will equip teachers with the skills & knowledge to foster deeper learning across the curriculum by intentionally leveraging digital tools to foster deeper learning.
