Session Descriptions

Session 1: Promote Student-to-Student Interactions (K–5 and 6–HS)

Learning is SOCIAL. Participants will explore ways to encourage those social interactions that support learning.


Session 2: Explore Projects and Non-routine Math Problems to Engage your Students (K–2, 3–5 and 6–HS)

Are you looking for long-term projects or activities to engage and motivate your students? We will explore resources that might be launched in a virtual environment and provide the opportunity for students to engage in meaningful, open-ended projects they can continue when they are off-line.


Session 3: Assess and Develop Math Fact Fluency (K–5 and 6–HS)

Do you have students that struggle with math facts? This session will help you learn ways to assess and create mathematically fluent students. We will share resources to involve students, parents and peers to promote long-lasting fact fluency.


Session 4: Get Students Together to Play Games, Solve Puzzles, and Solve Problems (K–2, 3–5 and 6–HS)

Students develop language and refine their understanding as they converse with others. Participants will explore ways to engage and support students as they interact with other students.


Session 5: Provide Valuable Feedback Digitally (K–5 and 6–HS)

An essential part of today’s learning environment is to use technology purposefully and to provide timely and meaningful feedback for students. During this session, we will explore effective feedback techniques that will work virtually or in-person. We will share indispensable resources you and your students can use to provide feedback.


Session 6: Promote Student Agency and Ownership (K–5 and 6–HS)

Student agency and ownership influence engagement and motivation. Participants will explore ways to promote student choice and encourage students to re-think and reflect on their thinking during distance learning.
