Welcome to the 2015 Natick Innovation & Learning Summit and the Natick Wellness Summit!  

DATE: Monday, November 30th, 2015 from 8 AM - 3 PM at Natick High School.
Natick High School is located at 15 West St. Natick, MA 01760

This year we will host over 850 educators and hold over 130 workshop sessions that are facilitated by expert practitioners on the tools, resources and instructional practices that Natick educators have requested.  All sessions are tagged by level and target audience to help you choose the best sessions for your interest and skill level.

This year is extra special because we are joining with the Natick Wellness Summit which has been designed to nurture the interdisciplinary roles of educators in the adoption of physical activity as a learning tool. Learn from leading neuroscientists, educators and psychologists the best practices and evidence based research to creatively incorporate physical activity into school policy, and teaching practices to enhance student’s ability to learn. 

We hope you enjoy this years summit and it allows you to deepen your professional practice.

DEEP DIVE - Extending the Gizmos Experience for Natick Pilot Teachers Only FULL
Limited Capacity seats available

This workshop is designed to model best practices for using Gizmos in a whole class setting as well as a small group setting. Teachers will become more skillful in teaching with these methods of instruction as they learn to incorporate Gizmos into collaborative classroom discussions, cooperative learning, and situations where students are constructing arguments supported by evidence. Participants will have time to work individually or in small groups to integrate best teaching practices with Gizmos into their curriculum. They will also develop customized Gizmo lesson plan by modifying our standard Lesson Materials. A review of the major features and functions of ExploreLearning.com will be included, focusing on participants' questions or difficulties.
