This two-day high-energy conference empowered school leadership teams from 5 MidWest states to explore how personalized learning experiences directly correlates with a student’s and a teacher’s growth mindset. We examined how personalized learning and its spaces can support a variety of pedagogical and brain-based instructional approaches. Participants had the opportunity to create their own personalized learning plan, through a “classroom crib” design challenge. This design challenge will motivate participants to create a personalized learning space based on sound pedagogical practices gained from the captivating sessions facilitated by well-known Minnesota and nationally recognized educational leaders and industry partners. A collaborative and interactive panel discussion with high school and middle school students added additional voices to this two-day experience and they provided us real world perspectives of what they need to be successful in their learning. #IntelK12Edu #mnlead #wiedu #wischat #iachat #LearningSpaces #BrainFriendly #PersonalizedLearning
