“It’s hard to keep people focused during collaboration.”
“We collaborate about standards, when do we talk about the challenges in my class?”
“Every outcome is important—they’re all essential!.”
“This might work for departments like English or Math, but I am the only Spanish teacher—who do I collaborate with?”
“Getting ready to lead collaboration time feels like another prep.”
“Can I collaborate by myself?”
Do any of these sound familiar? Do they sound similar to things you hear when you are working in your PLCs? If so, you are not alone. Thousands and thousands of districts across North America and the globe have spent time, effort and resources over the last two decades to create embedded time within the school day for educators to collaborate. And while the research behind professional learning communities collaborating to improve their teaching is clear, the application of professional learning communities and collaborative time can be foggy for educators at all levels of the system.
At the FIRST Education Virtual PLC Summit, we will address these challenges and others to help attendees reimagine what their PLCs can be. From the opening keynote with Cale Birk, Imagineer of PLC 2.0, to all breakout sessions, participants and schools will walk away from this virtual event with a renewed sense of energy, passion and focus to maximize the observable impact of their work in PLCs.
Join us for two days of learning with our team experts that will cover a variety of topics to ensure each of your collaborative teams are functioning with a sense of purpose to ensure the collaborative actions they engage in lead to the highest level of observable impact in each of their schools and classrooms.
Watch as an individual, PLC team, school or district and begin your journey on maximizing the Observable impact of your collaborative teams!
