BOLD MOVES BOOT CAMP



WORKSHOP: Designing Structures for Modern Learning

If we have new kinds of learners, then we need refreshed contemporary and responsive learning environments. We need new kinds of schools. Even if the most creative and competent teachers shape an emerging curriculum employing dynamic learning strategies, they will be restricted - and most important, their students will be restricted - by the parameters of the school program.

 

Bold Moves Boot Camp is a 2-day workshop that examines expanding the options for each of the four structures that make modern learning possible: schedules, learning spaces, student grouping, and personnel configurations. We will look at the relationship between these structures, and how to research and develop programs tailored to the student population in your school. Action plans will be developed onsite.
