Increasing Student Engagement With Choice, Creativity, Complexity, And Curiosity

This interactive virtual experience is one part Choose Your Own Adventure and one part professional learning, where you are in the driver’s seat! Over the course of six days, we will explore a menu of instructional strategies designed to meaningfully engage your students in the learning process. Each day you will gain access to a new collection of technology infused creativity activities designed to pique students’ curiosity and challenge them with increasing levels of complexity in thinking. With every new learning cycle, it will be up to you to decide which one activity to complete based on your own interests.

The 2020 AAGT Virtual Summer Tour all kicks off with an online live session on Monday, June 8, 2020. Together we will establish a conceptual foundation for our learning and explore the learning platform and structure. From there, you will work your way through six self-paced learning experiences. Best of all, regardless of your choices, everyone will gain access to all of the resources!
