TeachingPartners Live Workshop

Tonight at 9:00 EDT
Getting to know the Summit Learning Platform

Tonight, Diane Tavenner, Founder and Ceo of Summit Public schools presents the backbone of the Summit experience: the Summit Learning Platform. Find out how this tool helps students set both short and long-term goals while tracking progress toward these goals. See how students use it to prioritize their work, learn content at their own pace, complete deep projects that apply to real world situations and reflect on their learning.

This free, credit-bearing workshop lasts for one week and features two live video workshop sessions. You’ll work directly with Diane and with other teachers, and at the end you can apply what you’ve learned to receive a Certificate of Participation for your school or district.

Enrollment is limited to 20 participants. Miss a session? That’s fine. You can view it, recorded on Facebook and on Teaching Partners.

This workshop is also available for an NTC micro credential.
