Researching is about WAY more than learning, paraphrasing, and organizing facts. Classroom research has truly big potential! Through collaborative research, we ignite the energy and excitement necessary for next-level learning. In this session, we will discuss using inquiry to spark interest, how to form groups using student-generated guiding questions, and ways to foster independence and accountability as clubs embark on their own research projects. Additionally, different methods of “going public” will be shared. There’s no doubt about it, the power of working together to create, build, make, or change something can never be underestimated!

Video-Recorded Virtual (Zoom) Sessions and Tips to Maintain your Privacy during a Recorded Session: As an added value, all virtually-delivered programs are video recorded and accessible to our workshop registrants and Professional Learning Consortium Members subsequent to the session. Therefore, each virtually-delivered workshop and webinar will now have Zoom’s Recording Disclaimer enabled by default. With this feature, attendees will receive a notification when a recording starts or if they join a session that is already being recorded. The participant can then consent to stay in the session and be recorded or choose to leave the session altogether.
Tips to Maintain your Privacy during a Virtually-Delivered Session: Actively engaging in Zoom sessions is important. Participants may have concerns, however, of a Zoom session recording capturing their participation. Meeting hosts or instructors are taking steps to minimize this concern. In addition to the consent, participants can also use the following steps and features to take control of what is shared when a session is being recorded.
Please refer to Zoom’s Attendee Controls for more information on how to use these features.
