Visible Learning: What's It All About?

Room #: GVHS B 122

Kris LaFave and Beth Murphy

What is Visible Learning? Let's take a close look at John Hattie's work that involved millions of students and represents the largest ever evidence-based research into what actually works best to improve student learning. We will take time to discuss his findings and come up with ways we can use them to help our own students. What will help students learn the most? What has a minimal impact? The answers might surprise you!

In this session, we will discuss the theory and practice of motivating students with everyday surroundings.

Introducing Duolingo Into Your Classroom

Room #: BSES 128

Chris Shultz

Duolingo is a free language learning app that can be accessed on the iPad or on a chromebook. Students can access the program using their Google credentials and teachers can complete just a few steps to become a Duolingo certified educator (which we will do as a part of the course). Duolingo is excellent for high school students as they can test out if they are in advanced language classes or for younger learners who can benefit from language learning at a young age. Looking into a language also offers cultural connections and opportunities to learn about different places and people. I'd like to explore what other extensions students could engage in off of their work in Duolingo.
