Let's Start at the Very Beginning - Creating a Learning Environment for Young Learners(CC)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

"Young learners are active, curious and motivated. Their learning environment should be filled with concrete and hands-on opportunities that engage them and inspire learning. Just as wooden blocks, Unifix cubes and water colors are tools used to explore and develop concepts, digital tools, such as netbooks, iPads, Roamer Robots, video cameras and interactive whiteboards can also enhance the learning in a primary classroom. Learn how digital tools support a learning environment that motivates students to be active, independent and reflective learners.

Attendees will:
Look inside a technology rich kindergarten classroom
Hear student reflections about their learning
Gain techniques for setting up and managing the learning environment
Have an opportunity to discuss and ask questions.
"
