Co-Opting Classroom Constraints

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

How can you co-opt classroom constraints to realize transformative learning experiences for ALL learners? Teachers and school leaders come redesign a recent lesson, go-to instructional activity, or professional development session by rethinking how roles, norms, relationships, and resources (RNRs) constrain what is possible. Our learning community will experience these constraints firsthand as we engage in collaborative problem-solving activities. We will use these activities to reflect on how the RNRs shaped our experiences and how they can be co-opted to support transformational experiences for all learners. In the afternoon, you will reimagine a lesson, activity, or session by transforming those constraints through a scaffolded, learner-driven activity. We hope that our collective experiences will not only allow you to leave with a redesigned lesson, activity, or session but also a framework that helps you reimagine learning in your classrooms and schools by transforming constraints into possibilities.
In this deep dive, you will…
  • Display and continue their development of three deeper learning competencies: Collaboration, Critical thinking and problem solving, Effective communication
  • Explore and apply the RNR's framework for how Roles, Norms, Relationships, and Resources can be co-opted to ensure ALL learners experience transformative learning
  • Re-design a lesson, activity, session. to ensure all learners develop and display one deeper learning competency
  • Co-design a set of resources - reflection questions and seed ideas - to help us put the RNR’s framework into practice into our own classrooms and schools after today
