    Actionable Innovations Global is a professional learning community where participants explore innovation in education. Every Friday, we meet to discuss trends in education and invite inspiring guests to join us and share their work. Parents, educators, students, and others interested in improving teaching and learning are always welcome. 

    On January 13, 2023, Lisa Vahey will be our guest.

This group of concerned citizens and organizations is fighting hate & harm from the State House, State Board of Education, and in local communities as the list of threats grows ("Don't Say Gay", book bans, dismantling SEL supports, and so much more).

  • iEARN-USA Presents Digital Citizenship in a Globalized World

  • Aug 31, 2022 from 5:30pm to 7:00pm
  • Location: Online
  • Description:

    Length: 90 minutes

    Participants: Open to all educators and schools/districts.

    What's it All About?

    The words “digital” and “global” preface our 21st century understanding of citizenship, but what does it actually mean to be an effective and ethical digital citizen in a globalized world? How can we support students to responsibly contribute to digital, global communities? In this interactive workshop, educators will learn the “what” and “why” of digital citizenship, along with how it relates to global citizenship. Through self-reflection, pedagogical exploration, discussions, and activities, educators will build their own competence as they learn to model responsible digital citizenship and apply tips, strategies, and resources for developing students’ competence as digital citizens in an interconnected and interdependent world.

    This workshop will include guest speaker Dr. LeeAnn Lindsay, digital citizenship expert and Edvolve Dig Cit Doctor.

    Format: Interactive virtual workshop — offered on

  • WIDA Institute

  • Jul 26, 2022 to Jul 29, 2022
  • Location: Madison, WI, USA
  • Description:

    WIDA International Programs is excited to return to in-person professional learning on the beautiful University of Wisconsin - Madison lakeside campus. The WIDA Institute is a four-day comprehensive introduction to the WIDA Standards and Assessment System. Attending the Institute is a first step in learning how WIDA resources work together to support multilingual students and their teachers. Institute participants benefit from networking opportunities with international educators both in person and through an online community forum. 

    This was by far the best conference I have ever been to in my professional career. It was well-organized, clearly thought-out, and included a variety of activities that we can either take back home, or help us think through our learning. I am so thankful I attended this institute as I know I learned many valuable things that I can apply into my current teaching situation, as well as ideas for the future. - Participant from the Brussels WIDA Institute
