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.

Limited Capacity filling up

Everyone loves Tim and Moby as both characters combine information and humor to provide students with a unique way of learning.  Now with BrainPOP, teachers and students have countless opportunities to join Tim and Moby in collecting as well as representing knowledge in their own unique way. In this session, attendees will be introduced to GAMEUP and Make-A-Map, two exciting new features allowing for students to play thought provoking games as well as create concept maps innovating the way in which they think.  Attendees will also be exposed to Quiz Mixer, a powerful tool for teachers allowing them to create quizzes for their students. In addition they will get their feet wet with My BrainPOP, a new data collection tool for both teachers and students. Not only will participants witness mind blowing evidence representing BrainPOP being used to its fullest potential, but they will also have the chance to explore the power behind the newest features!
