It’s All About Kids is proud to partner with Promethean to sponsor a thought-provoking afternoon on September 2ndwith Dr. Debra Pickering, Senior Associate of Marzano Research Laboratory.  Dr. Pickering, renowned education researcher and author, will share how to enhance research-based instructional practices with interactive learning technologies which teachers and principals can put to use for concrete gains in student learning. Dr. Pickering’s workshop will discuss the findings from the recently completed research study, “Evaluation on the Effect of Promethean’s ActivClassroom on Student Achievement,” recommendations for applying the research findings to schools and classrooms in Hawai’i, and specific ways in which the technologies enhance research-based instructional strategies in order to:

  • Help students in Hawai’i maintain a clear focus on specific learning goals
  • Help students in Hawai’i effectively interact with new knowledge
  • Help students in Hawai’i think and process at higher levels

The national research study presents incredible findings relating the use of the Activclassroom to student achievement.  After learning more about the study, you will be inspired to embrace the technology to maximize the impact on student achievement.

The workshop will take place on September 2nd from noon to 2:30 pm (lunch provided) at the Pacific Club.  If you’re interested in attending, please contact Missy Miranda at mmiranda@iaak.net or call 487-KIDS.
