Inside the 2017 Common Sense Education Teacher Institute
Common Sense Education's Second Annual Teacher Institute was an event for the record books! We packed 100 teachers, administrators, and thought leaders into Twitter's Aviary Room on Friday, Feb. 3, to explore how educators can assess student outcomes beyond traditional grading. And we ended up in a dynamic, insightful, and collaborative space far "beyond the gradebook." Presentation topics ranged from teaching students how to spot fake news to learning the benefits of teamwork while trying to literally break open a locked box. "Reflect and tweet" breaks were also woven into the day's activities, so institute attendees could share what they were learning with their own communities. Check out what some of them were saying on Twitter by entering the hashtag #CSEd17.
