Two virtual 3-hour trainings focused on ILEARN clarity and resources are coming in March.

Participants will receive a large number of resources as they learn about computer-adaptive tests, difficulty VS DOK, IDOE resources that support the curriculum and lead to ILEARN success, the ins and outs of the portal, and most importantly, how all the resources connect.

High Ability Educators’ Network
February was an exciting start to our statewide High Ability Network! In March, we plan to build a database of resources. Come prepared to share resources you use with high-ability learners, and we will work in breakout rooms to create a High Ability Resource Repository to share across the network. This could include websites, lesson ideas, names in high ability, resources, books, etc. We will also be joined by Jason Callahan, Assistant Secretary of Student Pathways and Opportunities, and Flora Jones, Director of Student Pathways, at IDOE as they share about Indiana’s Graduates Prepared to Succeed (GPS).
Be sure to mark your calendar for the second Tuesday of the month at 3 p.m. EST because we have been busy planning for you. Dr. Donna Albrecht will join us in April to speak about HA – EL Services & Supports, and Dr. Lori Desautels will join us in May to speak about anxiety in high-ability learners. Be sure to register at the links below so you have that spot reserved on your calendar to join us.      March 9, 2022          April 13, 2022         May 11, 2022
