Morning Sports Activities
The morning sports activity program which I am running in our school is a great way to start the day in a healthy, active and fun way. Most of the exercises are connected to simple math tasks and moto loco skills.

Outcomes:
Students ‘wake up” in the best possible way and get with a positive feeling to the first period of the day. All subscribers will be active and go through some parts of the program. I will show coordination exercises which will help to develop both parts of the brain.

How to Differentiate in the Mathematics Classroom
The workshop will be split into three parts. Firstly, a brief look at the theory about how and why we differentiate. The second section would be showing some examples of how I differentiate in my grade 8 mathematics classes; however, the examples could be adjusted to any level. The last section would consist of participants creating a tiered task that will then be shared with all participants so that everyone goes away with a bank of resources they can use.

Outcomes:
The aim is for participants to become familiar with a variety of ways in which to differentiate in the mathematics classroom and to come away with some resources that are ready to use in their own classrooms.

Let’s Play Music Across the Curriculum
This workshop is designed to inspire the participants to create their own project combining music and their subject without being music experts.
Firstly, we will discuss the benefits of project-based learning as an opportunity to give students a voice and enhance their creativity. Secondly, we will analyse two projects conducted at MIS: “Rappers at  MIS”, a set videos with a rap in Spanish created by the Language B students; and the project “Drumming for Brazilian Children,” a workshop done with 50 voluntary Middle School students to improve ATL skills while raising awareness about street children in Latin America.


Outcomes:
Samples of how to integrate music through the curriculum to improve ATL skills: communication, affective, collaboration, thinking and research.

Creating a Weekly News Broadcast in Your School
In this workshop teachers and school leaders will learn hands on how to make a school news broadcast and possibly show it over the school’s digital signage/TV displays and online/YouTube channels. We will work through a hands-on activity to produce a mini version of a sample news broadcast. This session is will introduce you to the various stages, roles, hardware and software solutions for a full broadcast system, from pre-production to post-production. You can see an example here. https://twitter.com/rhovington/status/1172518578681196544


Outcomes:
Participants will learn the various stages, roles, hardware and software solutions for a full broadcast system, from pre-production to post-production.

We all have the power to make changes for the better - instructional coaching and its benefits to you
We all have the power and the resources inside ourselves to overcome challenges or to achieve our goals. Small changes that we make in our practice can be transformative and positively impact on our teaching, our student’s learning and our own personal lives. However, to make these changes, we need the time to sit down, consider what we would like to do, make a goal and plan our future steps. Unfortunately, for many of us, schools rarely present us with the opportunity to do this, but our AGIS session will. Together, we will work through a coaching conversation and plan the first steps to achieving your goal. Two instructional coaches were recruited by Frankfurt International School (FIS) in August 2018, and based on their work, we will learn about: a coaching structure, the theory behind the practice, how coaching has worked at FIS, and how it could work for you even if your school currently does not have a coach. Large oak trees grow from little acorns, so let’s start planting together.

Outcomes:
To understand the coaching process.
To have a first step towards your own preferred future/goal

Digital technology, AI and the classroom
This session will look at the implementation of digital technology in the classroom in general and the use of the Q Bo One robot in particular. We would consider set- up, programming and classroom use in the Primary school through to IB classes. At the Frankfurt International school over the past six months,students and staff in the Psychology department have been carrying out a LIVE examination of the AI Robot to see how effective and positive it can be in a variety of settings. Has digital technology started to impede our problem solving ability or can tools such as the Q BO One robot help students clarify their own thinking and develop new ways to process information?

Outcomes:
Attendees can expect a thorough review of technology use in the classroom, along with an appraisal of an innovative and unique tool, which COULD enhance student learning and cognition.

Restorative Justice and Shared Concern – using a positive approach to deal with bullying
Originally a practice taken from the Maori tribes of New Zealand Restorative Justice is now being used globally in schools, prisons, work places, by teachers, social workers and counsellors.

In this session, you will be given a practical introduction to the use of these two methods of restorative practice. All too often we see that a punitive approach to bullying not only fails to prevent further incidents but often can cause retribution from the offender, only making the problem worse. Restoration Justice or RJ for short is a tried and tested method seeks to create empathy in all parties and resolve the underlying causes of negative relationships. Shared Concern is a similar technique that is more specifically used when you have a group of students who are bullying one student. Again, it seeks to create a support network from what was once the exact opposite.

After this session you will have the tools you need to start to implement these two practices in your school community.

Outcomes:
You will understand the basic theory behind both methods and be able to lead these sessions in your school community.

Teaching/Learning Science Through Modeling Instruction (Elicit Preconceptions
Modeling Instruction is a pedagogy specific for the teaching/learning of science in all subject specific areas (Physics, Biology, Chemistry). It works effectively across the spectrum of grade levels (K-12) and this workshop will offer a mini sampling of lessons (from physical science, earth systems and life science) that can be adapted to various grade bands. The session will begin with an introduction to Modeling Instruction, the research that supports it, and examples of the student outcomes that result when using it. In Modeling, we begin by eliciting the current conceptual model that students come to school with. This takes place through the use of a probe or phenomena where we ask students to draw a model of what they are thinking. We then take them through a sequence of experiments where they gather evidence and decide if this evidence supports or refutes their original model. This gives students the opportunity to reconstruct their model, and in the process, dispel any misconceptions they might have had. This pedagogy uses a Claim, Evidence, Reasoning structure and incorporates the key skill strands that are well aligned with both Next Generation Science Standards and the International Baccalaureate (PYP, MYP and Diploma) programs.

Outcomes:
Access to resources that support the Modeling Instruction pedagogy
An understanding of how Modeling Instruction can be implemented in the classroom
An appreciation for the impact that Modeling Instruction can have on deepening student understanding of scientific concepts
