Diggin' In to the 1st5Days! Taken from our popular Master Class Less (Teaching) Is More (Learning), this session is a perfect and highly practical compliment to Alan & Sara’s #1st5Days session. Participants will explore & share a range of concrete, skill and culture-building activities designed to seed (start), scaffold, connect and grow student-owned learning environments, and build learner capacity for developing information and web literacy skills, constructing quality searches, making thinking visible, collaborative problem-solving, and more! This resource-filled session is one your students can't afford you to miss!
