Time Panel/Workshop Title Presenters Description

2:40-3:25 PM

Learning that is Living:

Sofia Cuevas

Our lives are filled with moments in which we can learn from, take from, and grow from. We must not make our deficits in our life something we cannot learn from, but instead, transform it with our innovative spirit, creativity, collaboration and connection, and our desire to learn. As our world continues to evolve, and bring about change, and light to issues, our role is to make this space a learning place, where life happens.

All Means All

Lindsey Barfield

How Can I. . . ?  a TAB-Choice Classroom Goes Online

Linda Papanicolaou

In the Spring 2020 shutdown, how many of us learned that favorite routines and activities did not take well to remote learning?

In this conference session we’ll talk about adapting Choice methodology to an online classroom, what worked and what didn’t, and how to apply what we’ve learned to whatever comes in the 2020-21 school year.
