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.

Do you have large groups of students?  Do you have limited space?  Do you struggle with finding new ideas to help kids get the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity a day? Based on the recent recommendations from the Institute of Medicine regarding physical education, presenters Meghan Dwyer and Dave Lyth will demonstrate how to use moderate to vigorous cardiovascular activities to drive curriculum, instruction and lessons.
