Leveraging Tech Tools to Foster Learning, While Easing Your Workflow (March 2021)
Keeping students engaged in meaningful learning while online and in hybrid, has brought its unique set of challenges and opportunities. WPS is hosting a session series, in partnership with education technology expert Tom Corbin, designed to provide teachers with ways to optimize blended learning for engagement using popular platforms that foster collaboration, while also easing teacher workflow. Each 90-minute session will provide time to engage in several tools. Tom will share a free resource site by grade and by subject that you can reference and share with colleagues. He will also host office hours following the session to serve as a support to teachers, answer questions, provide advice and troubleshoot.

WPS is grounded in the belief that teaching and learning is one of the most transformative of human endeavors. We are developing inductive learning experiences for educators that are experiential, balance the acquisition and application of knowledge, deepen both agency and self-reflection, and transcend time and place in their relevance. An emphasis on inquiry, discourse, and problem-based learning enables educators to collaboratively approach learning, problem solving, and supporting peers. WPS is based in Newton, MA and serves teachers and school leaders from across the country. For more information about WPS visit www.wpsinstitute.org.
