How can we, as educators and leaders, embrace technology to ensure all voices in the room are heard? In this edWebinar, we explore how we can shift from a first-is-best culture to one that sends the message that everyone’s voice matters — and that everyone has the potential to excel in the classroom.
This session with noted educator, speaker, and author Stacey Roshan explores how technology can help educators get to know students as individuals, deepen relationships, and give students the resources they need to take ownership of their learning — recognizing that it’s not so much about the tools but rather the why we do what we do for our students and our school communities. Stacey began her teaching career as a math educator, and now her insights inspire not only math educators but all teachers across the K-12 curriculum.
The webinar, a recording of which you can watch below, is of interest to K-12 teachers, librarians, school and district leaders, education technology leaders, curriculum leaders, science department chairs, and STEAM and STEM teachers. In it, Roshan explores practical techniques and powerful strategies for personalizing instruction and making classrooms a place where every learning style is welcome.
