Getting Started with Makerspace!
September 14, 2017
4pm or 7pm EDT
Makerspaces are the 21st century classroom. They can be designed to accommodate any learning style, ability, or age group. Being able to gear your school’s makerspace to a specific age group will allow the students to get the most out of the space. When kids go to the makerspace to learn, they aren’t just going through a drill and practice lesson that is seen too often in the classroom, they are using the hands to build, create, and imagine things never possible in a traditional classroom.

Smarter Assessment: How to Assess for Careers that Don't Exist Yet
September 27, 2017
4pm or 7pm EDT
We hear it over and over again- we are preparing students for jobs that don't even exist yet, therefore we have to change the way we teach. If we change the way we think about teaching, shouldn't we change the way we think about assessment? Should we be asking the same questions we always have? Why can't students use Google- or even Twitter or Wikipedia- to find answers? This webinar will focus how and why we create assessments in 2017. We will examine the end goal of assessment and the nuances of academic integrity as assessment increasingly moves online.

Strong Catholic Families Series (Part 1 of 3) - Formation to Transformation: The Mass Exodus
September 28, 2017
Thirteen. It’s not just reputed to be an unlucky number. According to CARA, it’s also the median age that Catholic youth “disaffiliate” with their faith and join the rising tide of “nones” in the country. It is also often the age at which many young people are Confirmed. What’s the connection and what critical role does the family play in this entire dynamic? More importantly, what can leaders and parents do to transform thirteen into a memorable year for the entire family?
