Event Details

Creating a Student Centered Classroom

During this workshop attendees will engage in understanding how to create a classroom culture of learning that is student centered. We will work together to build a definition of learning so participants understand the changing needs of today's modern learners (the why) and look at how authentic and relevant learning experiences can be personalized and integrated within traditional curriculum and classroom constraints. We will also help teachers develop a plan that incorporates culture building and leads to a learning environment that supports managing collaborative and student centered experiences (the how).

About the Facilitators:

  Alyssa Gallagher (am_gallagher) Alyssa is an experienced public school educator, school & Ldistrict administrator, facilitator and educational consultant. She holds a B.A. in Liberal Studies and a M.A. in Educational Leadership. She has successfully led districtwide blending learning initiatives and helped schools create integrated STEM programs. Having worked in a variety of roles from school principal to assistant superintendent of schools, Alyssa understands firsthand the complexity of educational leadership and is passionate about improving the learning experiences we create in schools. She is constantly exploring "What  if...?" with school leaders and works to support radical change in education. Alyssa was recently recognized as the "2013 Education Multiplier of the Year'' and enjoys coaching leaders on the Multiplier mindsets and disciplines.

  Kami Thordarson (@kami_thor) Kami's favorite part of leading is the discovery & learning that occurs everyday as you work to support your teachers, students and community. While no longer actively leading one school as a principal, Kami now applies this talent and passion to designing learning experiences for other educational leaders. Kami currently serves the Campbell Union School District as the Director of Instructional Technology and is always pushing to ensure technology is used to amplify and accelerate learning.
