Productive Struggle and Resiliency in our Learning
Great learning happens when we are challenged!
Stretching our Learning
Thank you to everyone who was able to attend our Productive Struggle and Resiliency in Learning event on February 15th. We had a wonderful turnout and it was awesome to see so many families in the building. Students and parents had the opportunity to take part in many diverse learning activities designed to push them slightly outside of their comfort zone in order to stretch their learning. Many great cars and slightly wobbly hula hoop towers were built!
We have attached the main presentation that was shared with families as the opening address of this session:
The overall goal of this session was starting the conversation about the importance of challenge in our learning. Effective learning, where learners are moving their skills and understandings forward, will involve moments of struggle and failure as part of the process. Teachers and parents have the role of framing the learning process as one that means going through this process of challenge, struggle and reflection about the process to build new knowledge, understandings, skills and procedures.
Thank you again for attending the event if you were able - and we look forward to keeping the conversation going in the months ahead!
