About This Webinar

This 2024 Share My Lesson Virtual Conference session will address the realities of the post-pandemic education situation. Kiddos are absent en masse, families are frustrated, student resilience is low, and AI is disrupting how we educate and assess students. We will talk about three education shifts that can right the ship after being adrift, setting a course for a new era in education. You will learn to give yourself permission to deeply differentiate, reassess assessment, and calibrate classroom climate. Our students need the “adults to adult” and set the course for them, and this webinar will show you how.

This was an informative session. Every educator should watch this session! She is engaging and gives you real, practical strategies and guidance on shifts you can make in your classroom to help your students grow. Glad to hear how humor should be encouraged in a lesson.

Well worth my time
This was my favorite session from Share My Lesson 2024. The identified after-effects of COVID really resonated with what I've been experiencing with students. For sure I will put into practice the suggestions to bring back joy (question of the day!) and grace grading.
