    21. The Design of Learning Centered Environments

    Program: Office of School Improvement - CTLE Approved Sponsor

    Audience: K-12 Educators

    Dates: 7/18/2022 to 7/19/2022

    Knowledge and competencies for success in today's world are vastly different from those of the 20th Century. Research continues to solidify the argument that students learn better when they are personally and actively engaged in learning. (Nair) Over the course of two days, teachers will engage in the design of student-centered classroom environments through a modality of learning called Project-Based Learning (PBL). Understanding will result from the opportunities created to engage with one another in solving complex questions about the latest research on the relationship between space, cognition, and teaching. Educators will demonstrate their new understandings by presenting the evolution of their thinking through the design of their classroom environments. The redesign of learner-centered spaces is more about what we value as teachers and the pedagogies that we use to honor the learning, than simply buying new furniture. With very little resources, we can transform our classroom into learner centered spaces that allow for individualization, stimulation, and conditions necessary for processing information.

    A prerequisite is to have measurements of your classroom, length and width, and bring some pictures of windows, doors, and shelving locations.

    Participants will:
  • Identify the values that we want to communicate through our environment on supporting and monitoring student learning.
  • Draw on theoretical knowledge related to student-centered environments, cultures of thinking, and culturally responsive teaching for the design of learning spaces.
  • Explore the relationship between the physical learning environment, pedagogy, and teacher collaboration.
  • Identify the design principles that support student-centered environments.
  • Design classroom environments that support the acquisition, processing, and transferring of knowledge and skills.
  • Design spaces that offer flexibility in supporting multiple learning modalities and make students thinking visible.

    As a result of this session, the participants will:
  • Explore foundational elements of culture and Culturally Responsive-Sustaining (CRS-E) Education as provided by NYSED's recent initiatives related to DEI.
  • Reflect on personal culture & experiences and explore implicit bias concepts through individual and collective opportunities.
  • Become familiar with the NYSED Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education framework's key elements as required by NY state public schools.

    Have you ever wished you had a safe, non-judgmental space to ask questions about LGBTQ+ individuals and identity? Are you confused by the differences between gender, expression, identity and orientation? Have you ever wondered what the letters in the LGBTQ+ initialism mean? Would you like strategies for creating more welcoming and affirming learning spaces for LGBTQ+ students, colleagues, and families? This professional learning opportunity provides the tools you need! While progress is slowly being made to create more welcoming and affirming learning spaces there is still much to be done. For LGBTQ+ students, colleagues, and families the school environment can pose numerous threats and obstacles. Below are some eye-opening statistics from GLSEN's (Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network) 2019 National School Climate Report: 86% of LGBTQ+ students were harassed or assaulted at schools; 2 in 5 LGBTQ+ students of color were bullied or harassed based on race or ethnicity; 84% of trans students felt unsafe at school because of their gender. Anti-LGBTQ discrimination means that LGBTQ+ students miss more school, have lower GPAs, and lower self-esteem. This dynamic, interactive professional learning session focuses on building your ally skills, developing welcoming and affirming learning spaces through the use of inclusive and respectful language, terminology, pronouns and discourse, assessing the physical environment for inclusivity, creating inclusive learning opportunities, and knowing where to go for resources and support. Attending this workshop is a proactive step towards creating welcoming and affirming learning spaces. Program participants will receive a Safe Zone sticker and course materials. Contact Jeanette_Adams-Price@boces.monroe.edu for more information. Once registered you will be sent a link to a video to watch prior to the 7/12/22 program.

    "He is so disorganized!” "I would lose my head if it weren't on my shoulders!” "She is always late!” Any of these sound familiar? The good news is none of these skills are just who we are or just who our students are. The skills we use to learn, work, and manage life, or our executive function skills, are governed by our brain and therefore are never fixed. Executive Function skills are considered the management system of the brain. When our students struggle with executive function skills, it can make it hard for them to focus, follow directions, handle their emotions, and stay on task. Given the different learning opportunities students have experienced during the pandemic, they are ever more in need of developing their executive function skills.

    Program: Office of School Improvement - CTLE Approved Sponsor

    Audience: PreK-Grade 2 Educators, Paraprofessionals & Administrators

    Dates: 9/19/2022

    Join Alyssa Blask Campbell, leading expert in emotional development and CEO of Seed & Sew LLC., to learn about the neuroscience of behavior.

  • Why are we seeing the same behaviors repeatedly?
  • What is happening beneath the surface to drive behavior?
  • How do we support children with self-control?
  • What does it look like to facilitate long-term behavior change outside of positive reinforcement and behavior plans?

    We know that emotional development is at the cornerstone of learning, that children need to process emotions before they are ready to absorb content, but there hasn't been a "how to” guide for building this development, until now. At Seed and Sew, Alyssa works with early childhood educators to dive into the Collaborative Emotion Processing (CEP) method as well as the Phases of Emotion Processing in order to build the adult's mindful practices alongside their toolbox for responding to emotional expressions to emotional intelligence. We cannot expect children to engage in social relationships without supporting their emotional development. In a world where social/emotional learning is heavily focused on the social aspects, we are collaborating with early childhood educators to help children develop the emotional intelligence and sensory regulation to have the confidence, communication, and processes to navigate their complex world and build resiliency. This work is focused on the neuroscience driving behavior and how to work WITH a child's nervous system for long-term results.

    Have you ever wished you had a safe, non-judgmental space to ask questions about LGBTQ+ individuals and identity? Are you confused by the differences between gender, expression, identity and orientation? Have you ever wondered what the letters in the LGBTQ+ initialism mean? Would you like strategies for creating more welcoming and affirming learning spaces for LGBTQ+ students, colleagues, and families? This professional learning opportunity provides the tools you need! While progress is slowly being made to create more welcoming and affirming learning spaces there is still much to be done. For LGBTQ+ students, colleagues, and families the school environment can pose numerous threats and obstacles. Below are some eye-opening statistics from GLSEN's (Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network) 2019 National School Climate Report: 86% of LGBTQ+ students were harassed or assaulted at schools; 2 in 5 LGBTQ+ students of color were bullied or harassed based on race or ethnicity; 84% of trans students felt unsafe at school because of their gender. Anti-LGBTQ discrimination means that LGBTQ+ students miss more school, have lower GPAs, and lower self-esteem. This dynamic, interactive professional learning session focuses on building your ally skills, developing welcoming and affirming learning spaces through the use of inclusive and respectful language, terminology, pronouns and discourse, assessing the physical environment for inclusivity, creating inclusive learning opportunities, and knowing where to go for resources and support. Attending this workshop is a proactive step towards creating welcoming and affirming learning spaces. Program participants will receive a Safe Zone sticker and course materials.

    Audience: Classroom teachers, School leaders, GSA Advisors, School Counselors, Social Workers, School Psychologists, School Nurses

    Dates: 3/9/2023

    Have you ever wished you had a safe, non-judgmental space to ask questions about LGBTQ+ individuals and identity? Are you confused by the differences between gender, expression, identity and orientation? Have you ever wondered what the letters in the LGBTQ+ initialism mean? Would you like strategies for creating more welcoming and affirming learning spaces for LGBTQ+ students, colleagues, and families? This professional learning opportunity provides the tools you need! While progress is slowly being made to create more welcoming and affirming learning spaces there is still much to be done. For LGBTQ+ students, colleagues, and families the school environment can pose numerous threats and obstacles. Below are some eye-opening statistics from GLSEN's (Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network) 2019 National School Climate Report: 86% of LGBTQ+ students were harassed or assaulted at schools; 2 in 5 LGBTQ+ students of color were bullied or harassed based on race or ethnicity; 84% of trans students felt unsafe at school because of their gender. Anti-LGBTQ discrimination means that LGBTQ+ students miss more school, have lower GPAs, and lower self-esteem. This dynamic, interactive professional learning session focuses on building your ally skills, developing welcoming and affirming learning spaces through the use of inclusive and respectful language, terminology, pronouns and discourse, assessing the physical environment for inclusivity, creating inclusive learning opportunities, and knowing where to go for resources and support. Attending this workshop is a proactive step towards creating welcoming and affirming learning spaces. Program participants will receive a Safe Zone sticker and course materials.
