Breaking Bold: Living the Relationship Habits that Matter
Are the kids OK? There may be no more essential question for educators today. In a moment when mental health issues are bearing down on our students, the role of educators must expand to meet not only the academic needs but also the social and emotional needs of our students. But can we articulate clearly what SEL should look like and sound like? (Hint: it’s not a thing we do to people, it’s how we are with people.) So then how are our relationships with our children? Can we really be objective about it? (And by the way, if you’re only asking this question of adults, you won’t have the full picture.)
Join Weston Kieschnick as he discusses the key relationship habits from his best-selling book Breaking Bold, that underpin effective student learning and how teachers and leaders can live and leverage these habits to be concrete and intentional about SEL to engage their kids, improve learning and change lives. Participants will leave with tools for immediate implementation and a year’s worth of SEL resources to support our work with children.
Go Forth and Be Bold: Educating for the Future
Wisdom informs innovation; the latter simply cannot exist without the former. In the push for future-focused schools, we need to take an honest look at the strategies and practices of our past. Which highly effective strategies need to accompany us on the path forward? Which practices never worked to begin with, and need to go the way of the floppy disk?
Weston Kieschnick will share his findings from the best-selling book Bold School. He offers participants practical strategies for immediate implementation, while demonstrating how masters of pedagogy and technology try early, fail often and pursue excellence with joy to create bold, blended learning experiences that work.
Weston Kieschnick is an award-winning educator, best-selling author, TEDx speaker, coach, husband and father. He is the author of Bold School, Breaking Bold, co-author of The Learning Transformation: A Guide to Blended Learning for Administrators and the creator and host of Teaching Keating; one of the most downloaded podcasts for educators and parents on iTunes.
Weston has worked in collaboration with innovative tech and publishing companies (Google, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Apple) to redefine teaching and learning in the digital age. As such, he’s advised educators from every state in the US and more than 30 countries around the world. Districts where Mr. Kieschnick has designed content, implemented initiatives and trained educational leaders have been recognized by the Learning Counsel as being among the top ten in the nation for their work in blended learning.
You can find Weston’s work published in EdWeek, EdTech Magazine, The Spark and featured on TED, the 10-Minute Teacher, Teaching Tales, Kids Deserve It and LeadUp Teach.
