After a very successful first year, Linwood Public Schools will host the second annual PL-Sea Learning Conference for educators from 8:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, August 15, 2019 at the Belhaven Middle School, 51 Belhaven Avenue, Linwood, NJ. The event is free, but participants must register to attend. For more information, go to www.plsea.org.
PL-Sea, a “Wave of Learning,” is a free non-commercial Personal Learning Community (or PLC) of passionate educators who want to learn, discuss, and share information that is important in our classrooms and school communities. Participants can join a new collaborative online community of educators to share ideas after the event to continue the conversation.
This event will offer a new experience by learning from peers and other professionals, both in person and online, about topics which are vital to all stakeholders in our schools. Many topics will be covered and are not just limited to technology. The list of sessions to be presented include: Improving Professional Growth, STEM Curriculum, Conflict Resolution, Help for New Teachers, Supporting Struggling Students, and Video for Visual Learning to name a few.
A dedicated team of volunteers made up of local educators is organizing this event in order to give educators in our region an opportunity to share success stories, learn what is working in other districts, and strengthen their personal learning networks. Free breakfast and prize raffles will be provided thanks to generous sponsorships from a variety of national organizations, and free tickets can be obtained here: plsea-learning.ticketleap.com/plsea2019.
