When do educators get time?

Room to Grow

As technology develops it is important for educators to regularly reflect on their practice. Why, then, are educators so rarely given the time to fully develop new skills and integrate new technology into teaching and learning?

We believe that when given that time, educators will use effective pedagogy and transformational tools to fundamentally change their environment. Room To Grow, a collaborative space based on the User-Generated Learning model, helps educators harness instructional strategies to suit their professional needs.

Old Work

Bring along a unit or lesson plan you’ve been recycling year after year, or an initiative you’ve been wanting to incorporate but haven’t had time to develop; go to workshops with your project in mind.

New Ideas

If you don’t have a specific project or objective to focus on, look to your keynote speakers, facilitators, and fellow educators at IntegratED for inspiration–you may find exactly the right thing to help you thrive.

Create with a mentor in a collaborative studio.
