TELUS Convention Centre - Ideation Room 1
Location : TELUS Convention Centre - Ideation Room 1

Do you want your class to move past topic-based learning? In this session, Michelle will share how she has used PBL & Concept-Based learning in an elementary setting. Using a conceptual lense, and drawing from STEAM, Design Thinking, Big Questions and Growth Mindset concepts, she will share a sample of one of her units, along with the critical thinking skills that her students are demonstrating through her approach. She will discuss both the celebrations and challenges of encouraging students to think through a conceptual lense as they become better innovators, collaborators, risk takers, and critical thinkers. Leave feeling more prepared to move from teaching topics to teaching in a way that supports conceptual understanding.
