2020 Learning Bursts – November 18th (4:00pm – 4:30pm)

NOIIE leaders Michelle Iacoboucci (Rocky Mountain School District) and Nicole Davey (Bulkley Valley School District) hosted the first of a series of 30 minute learning bursts on Nov. 18th. These are designed as a chance to have a quick burst of new learning provided by two NOIIE schools – complete with book prizes.  These events are offered free of charge and open to anyone who is interested in learning more about the impact of inquiry on the ground in BC schools.

Learn more about the November 18th session below!

Lindsay Park School, Kimberley

Michelle Iacoboucci will be joined by two teachers from Lindsay Park: Doreen Sharpe and Corissa Pasiechnyk. These two teachers have agreed and are excited about participating in the Network’s first mini-sessions. Both classroom teachers are passionate about place-based learning. Their focus this year is about how place-based learning can support all curricular areas, as well as have positive impacts on their learners’ social and emotional wellbeing.

Smithers Secondary, Smithers

Nicole Davey will be joined by Julie Krall, principal from Smithers Secondary, who will share the work their grade 8 team has been doing around student centered transition. During the spring, the Smithers Secondary School grade 8 team reflected deeply on the needs of the incoming grade 8s, using the three big picture questions as a guide: What is going on for our learners? How do we know? Why does it matter?  After their discussions, they became curious:  Would creating a grade 8 class based on connection and place-based learning impact students’ sense of belonging?  Julie Krall, the principal, will share where they are at in their journey.

Stay tuned for the next Learning Burst event!
