Professional Learning Series
The Kaleidoscope Collective regularly offers free professional learning opportunities to educators from across the Commonwealth who are interested in bringing Deeper Learning to their schools and classrooms. Educators have the opportunity to engage with colleagues in order to strategize ways to apply cutting edge practices and mindsets in their own virtual, hybrid, or in-person classrooms. This site is updated regularly with all of Kaleidoscope's professional learning opportunities!
Innovative Science Assessment Pilot Webinar
Join us on Monday, August 9th at 12:00 to learn more about the Innovative Science Assessment Pilot. The Department is piloting an innovative new science assessment for grades 5 and 8 that is intended to focus more on deeper learning, be more engaging and culturally responsive for all students, and emphasize the "doing of science." There was a successful pilot during the 2020-2021 school year with plans to pilot another innovative science assessment in the 2021-2022 school year with increased participation from districts and professional development for teachers. Anyone interested in learning more should join this informational webinar. You can register to attend this session through Zoom.
