We look forward to learning with you at WISSIT in August!

We know a school can be only as good as its teachers. The best schools are those where teachers continuously improve their practice through collaboration and guided self-reflection.

Three questions guide our vision of WISSIT: What if we were to bring together motivated teachers from a wide variety of schools in order to engage in deep discussion about effective teaching and learning? What if we provided support when they returned to their schools, where they put into place what they have learned? What if these teachers were able to build a school-wide culture of reflection and collaboration with their colleagues?

At WISSIT, you’ll be joining educators from all over the Washington, DC, area, as well as researchers from Project Zero at the Harvard University Graduate School of Education.  We will engage in an intensive week-long exploration of two themes, Building a Culture of Thinking and Educating for Global Competence.

See you on Monday morning, August 3!

How to Deepen Thinking and Understanding Using Technology FULL

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

In this hands-on workshop, participants will use technology to deepen thinking and understanding of both teachers and students. They will first take part in a live documentation exercise and produce content for a video to be published on Youtube and shared on the WISSIT website. They will then make an ExplainEverything presentation, engaging in deep thinking about PZ ideas using technology. They will finally reflect on the exercise, exploring ways they can apply these ideas to their own classroom settings. Participants will use the devices provided in the workshop, and the co-leaders will provide strategies adaptable to all levels of technology access. This workshop is suitable for teachers of all grade levels and subjects.
