What teachers want to tell you about the #CIReboot

  • It’s great to talk/hear other teachers who are using CI in the classroom and have a lot of experience. The presenters are great at giving information without lecturing.
  • I would tell them it will change their approach to teaching and it will reduce their anxiety about teaching.
  • It’s re-charging!
  • YOU NEED TO REGISTER EVEN IF YOUR SCHOOL DOES NOT PAY FOR IT. I PAYED WITH MY OWN MONEY.
  • I’m so glad I went. Nearly everything presented was practical and relevant.
  • That it is worth the time and money.
  • It’s a great way to refresh on CI- it’s an affordable and convenient way to get high quality PD.
  • It was a great week of information that did not overwhelm and a must attend conference
  • It is absolutely worth your time and money. I think it also gives people much better value for money than traveling to a conference.
  • Lots of valuable sessions, variety in types of presentations (panel discussions, presentations, some interactive, q&a)
  • As someone relatively new to acquisition-driven instruction, this conference gave me the knowledge, resources, motivation, and confidence to continue moving forward on this journey. With 22 years of teaching experience, it’s hard to change old ways and make mistakes while doing so. The presenters at this conference, however, have been extremely supportive and have shown me how much better off my students will be for all my efforts.
  • That is is super actionable and one of a kind.
  • Bite-sized PD at convenient times with really passionate people! Doesn’t drag on all day! Very inspiring!!
  • I was happy to be exposed to strategies that could make the acquisition experience more pleasurable for both students and teachers alike. The presenters clearly love what they do in the classroom and one can’t help but carry forward their enthusiasm into the planning process for the new academic year. Honestly, this has been the most practical event I have ever attended in all my teaching career.
  • It is a wonderful opportunity to learn and reflect on our practice.
  • It’s a great way to get PD hours, learn as much (or little) as you want, and then get Grad hours all for a great price!
