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.

Finding your inner superhero is something not only students should do, but anyone in the world of education.  In this workshop, you will get a taste of the SuperYouFUN Curriculum, a unique set of lessons designed to empower youth (and teachers!) through writing, art, music, and 21st century skills.  You will witness evidence of schools and classrooms everywhere taking pride in who they are. Then, you will be asked to find your inner superhero and superpowers as you join a superhero "class" through Google Classroom. Through digital creation tools and blogging, you will not only discover the power in using Google Classroom with your students, but you will become empowered to start the SuperYouFUN Curriculum and witness life changing results.  To keep the SuperYouFUN Movement going, you will be encouraged to join our Twitter and Google+ communities so you can connect with SuperYouFUN educators all over the country!
