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!

Learning Together through Documentation LIMITED

How can documentation influence individual and collective learning? In this experiential course, participants will explore how documentation, constructed by students and their teacher, can be used to both share our learning with others and to shape our ongoing learning. Participants will engage in a collective math investigation which we will document together and use as a resource for reflecting on our thinking and learning.  Afterwards we will see how a group of second graders engaged in a similar process by viewing documentation that they created with their teacher. While our documentation will be focused on a math investigation, this course is relevant and accessible to educators of all disciplines and age levels that are interested in thinking more about making learning visible through documentation.
