Mindfulness and SEL Strategies for Wellness Institute
Mindfulness and social and emotional learning (SEL) continue to be extremely important and relevant to students and educators alike, especially as more and more schools take the initiative to focus on the implications of emotionally-developed students. At their core, mindfulness and SEL might seem similar, but the two have distinct purposes, ideologies, frameworks and strategies which support personal growth in a variety of ways. Both support self-awareness and emotional development, and it can be powerful to explore them in tandem. This institute is designed to support educators with the research and tools they need to successfully implement strategies and practices, with their students, that focus on developing the skills necessary to managing emotions and being mindfully aware of the impact those emotions have on daily life. This starts with educators who are not only knowledgeable about the practices -- like feeling and sharing empathy, making informed decisions based on managed emotions and setting positive goals -- but who also embrace the benefits of implementing said practices into their daily lives. Topics and Questions Covered: What is SEL and how is it beneficial to students’ learning environments and to their future careers? What is mindfulness and how does it breed self-awareness? How can mindful practices and SEL concepts be developed to help students understand why they react the way they do, and how to respond with intention? How can educators embody these mindful practices and ultimately teach their students how to do the same? How are these concepts and strategies relevant beyond the school environment (i.e. interpersonal relationships and career readiness)? How does focusing on the adoption of these strategies result in an enhanced ability to deal with the rigors associated with reaching academic goals? Who should attend this Institute? Any educator, or school mental-health professional, who is interested in mindfulness and SEL practices for themselves and their students Instructional coaches who want to support adult learners in their quest to develop these skills themselves Administrators who wish to bring a more advanced understanding of SEL and a culture of mindfulness to their schools Teams of educators who want proven strategies that work to bring these mindsets to their school, at every level. Anyone outside of education interested in developing a deeper understanding of mindfulness and SEL and it’s benefits in work environments Participants of this institute will leave with a deep understanding of how SEL and mindfulness can impact the lives of their students in profound ways, and help them develop into emotionally aware individuals who thrive in their environments. If you’re seeking to further your knowledge of mindfulness and SEL and how both relate to the emotional well-being of students, this institute is for you.

Indiana Standards Bootcamps
Indiana Standards Bootcamps are three-day intensive summer trainings offered in both math and ELA for K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 grade bands, focused on the most challenging standards for each content area. Indiana Standards Bootcamps are made possible by the generous support of the Mind Trust and are free of charge to Indianapolis educators. Over the course of the three-day training, teachers will engage as learners in a series of tasks to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the expectations of the grade-level standards. In ELA sessions, participants will analyze the targeted standards, identify challenging concepts and work through them together. They will also discuss the progression, distinctions, and relationships of standards within and across grades, and analyze the intended depth of the standards. Teachers will grow their expertise in reading, comprehending, and analyzing complex informational texts and text sets. In math sessions, participants will work through a series of aligned tasks that build in rigor. For each task, teachers will do the math themselves and identify the key mathematical understandings, common misconceptions, and standards aligned to the task. They will also explore the preceding standards and skills that are required for success on the task. Through deepening their own content knowledge of the focus standards and common challenges, all participants will be better prepared to support students in the standards covered.

Education Technology Integration Institute
Emerging technology in education follows the same trend as all forms of technology -- it’s constantly improving and features an array of functions that are certainly useful to those utilizing it; however, the ways it can be used are seemingly endless, and giving it purpose in learning environments can be difficult. This institute will support educators in mitigating the inevitable learning curve associated with some of the emerging technology in education. Participants will also be tasked with reassessing some of the tech that has been moved out of the circle of “innovative” and into to the area of “obsolete”, and discover new ways to use this tech in their school or classroom. Ultimately, this institute will cover technology in many areas -- from Raspberry Pis to Google Classroom, to cutting edge robotics like Sphero and Dash and Dot, to QR Codes, to Osmo for iPhones and iPads and tons of other tech -- and leverage expert facilitators, all while exploring how education technology can be integrated into learning environments to increase student engagement exponentially. Topics and Questions Covered: Computer science skill development in tandem with the use of robotics technology and cutting-edge apps built to develop these skills in students. Apps, programs and websites designed specifically for the implementation of gamification learning strategies in your school or classroom. Reassess tech that has been written off as no longer useful to education, or in its own right, and explore some truly innovative ways to use what’s been deemed as lacking innovation. Tech built to support educators in working collaboratively with one another, and to also aid them in the organization of class curriculum and materials necessary to their learning outcomes. Tech built to help educators automate certain aspects of their workflow, and create a more streamlined process that will help them save time. How is emerging technology, and tech on the horizon, integral to the future careers of students? Leverage the support of industry partners who are witnessing the implications of a technology-driven world first-hand. Who should attend this Institute? Any educator interested in leveraging unused technology in their school or classroom to design new curriculum strategies, and ultimately increase student engagement by using education technology to their advantage Instructional coaches who seek a deeper understanding of education technology and new insights pertaining to how it can be used in the learning environments they are trying to help their adult learners cultivate Administrators who desire a more focused approach to education technology in their school, but may not know the best ways to proceed Teams of educators in schools who are looking to approach the use of technology in their school from all angles, and want a calculated investigation of its uses, especially with how it pertains to student learning Anyone outside of education interested in developing a deeper understanding of technology and it’s benefits in work environments Participants of this institute will leave with a deeper knowledge of some of the most relevant technology currently available to education, and how it can be implemented in both specific and broad ways to ultimately increase student engagement. If you’re interested in education technology at any level -- novice or expert -- this institute is for you.
