Inspired Learning Conference - Teachers Leading Best Practices
Littleton Public Schools was proud, for the 7th time, to host the Inspired Learning Conference on April 25th, 2015. Teachers from Littleton Public Schools as well as Weld District 6, Falcon District 49, Weld Re-8, Academy 20, Brighton 27J, Denver Public Schools and Douglas County Schools were leading and sharing best practices. We were excited to have 4 school board members and our new Superintendent Brian Ewert attend and address the conference participants..
Sessions covered a range of topics: Virtual Exit Slips, Student Conferencing, Formative Assessment, Google Classroom, Blogging, Personalized Learning, Gamification, Flipped Classroom, Student Feedback, Getting Started and more. We are fortunate to have active professional colleagues who take a Saturday to learn and share with others.
This year we combined a traditional conference (pre-planned sessions) with an EdCamp strand that Chris Moore and Nate Ubowski guided. See schedule of sessions here. This open discussion gave everyone a platform to share their experiences/success/struggles and was a great addition to the conference.
I would like to thank the following individuals who helped support/organize this event.
