Blended Learning with EduSmart

Utilizing Flexibility and Choice - Paula Noe hosts a session on discovering 3 new ways to leverage EduSmart into a blended learning model that supports your students’ needs.
September 16th 4:00 PM CST / 5:00 PM EST

STAAR Redesign

Learn about new STAAR test item types that will be used on future STAAR exams. In the 2022-2023 school year, 25% of STAAR questions will be non-multiple choice. Examples for new Science STAAR test items include multiselect, multipart, drag and drop, hot spot, text entry, and short constructed response. EduSmart resources already use many of these new item types, so your students will have plenty of advance preparation for the new STAAR format.
September 29th 4:00 PM CST / 5:00 PM CST

Recipe for Change: Moving from Cookbook Labs to Inquiry

Most science classroom lab activities are highly structured and move all students to the same known outcome.  There is little room for student curiosity, and we refer to these labs as “cookbook” labs because students simply follow directions like it is a recipe. Just because an activity is hands-on does not mean scientific inquiry is taking place. Join Lisa Deslaurier as she shares easy-to-implement strategies to move a cookbook lab to a more open-ended student inquiry experience.
October 13th 4:00 PM CST / 5:00 PM EST
