Time: become its master, not its slave*.
This session is dedicated to flow and productivity, so that we can maximise interactive time with our learners. From planning, research and assessment to grading practices and feedback, how can we make it easier to do the best things for high-impact inquiry? With examples of workflows, tech tools and non-tech strategies, we’ll try out ways to make the most our most limited resource.
...to do better things.
Stephen is a HS Learning & Tech Coach and Science teacher. New to WAB after being Director of Learning & MYP Coordinator in Kobe, Japan, Stephen is excited about pragmatic, high-quality, globally-informed inquiry and how technology can amplify & transform learning and empower students.
He is passionate about connection and helping to “make it easier to do better things”, through resources, visualisation and workflows. He writes about wayfinding & learning at sjtylr.net and IB science learning at i-Biology.net.
I "write to think" and regularly post to my Wayfinder Learning Lab blog. I refer to some of these in my workshops and consultancies.
Is this an inquiry with an “I” or an enquiry with an “e”? (on high-powered, knowledge-rich inquiry vs. fluffy superficiality)
Wayfinding: Curriculum as a Compass? (on navigating inquiry and the roles of the expert teacher)
The Buoyant Force of Continuum Learning (backwards mapping is not the same as backwashing demands and we must consider the experience of the learners pushing upwards)
The TEMPERed Learner (on ATL, self-regulation and the effective post-MYP student)
