As educators, we share the mission to nurture every student, helping them reach their full potentials. However, "Everybody learns differently and everybody gets to a certain point from a different direction." Each student we meet and teach has different intelligences, interests and learning styles, regardless of age, background and prior knowledge. Therefore, traditional one-size-fits-all approach can hardly be an effective strategy to support diverse learners in the classroom.
To engage every student and empower their unique talents, it's our responsibility to embrace learners' diversity and motivate them to make consistent individual progress. In this half-day seminar, you will listen to ELG's experienced bilingual education professionals sharing topics around early "Red Flag" for key learning difficulties and conditions and Social-emotional Learning (SEL) that support diverse learners and boost their individual progress in the classroom. Apart from receiving practical strategies, you will also have opportunities to network with other educators and share your teaching experiences together!
Red Flags: Spotting Learning Difficulties in the Classroom
by Dr. Lei Jin
Learners come in many forms. As teachers, we may have seen many students showing as higher-achievers in certain areas or subjects, meanwhile also observed some others in your classroom appear to struggle more with pre-academic and/or academic tasks. But how could we know if that's just a kind of "slow-to-warm-up" -learning style, or if they actually experience some underlying learning difficulties, and even much severe developmental delay?
In this seminar led by ELG's Educational Psychologist, Dr. Lei Jin, you will learn about theearly 'red flags' for key learning difficulties and conditions, such as autism spectrum disorder, working memory deficits, slow processing speed and attention deficits, and how to identify a child who may need additional support, with related intervention approaches for each concern.
Creating a Classroom Climate for Social-Emotional Learning
by Tingting Chen
If you can visualize an ideal school where optimal learning occurs, what would you see? What would you hear? How would you feel? In today's education and teaching, it's acknowledged that our students' needs extend beyond the purely academic. A balance between their wellbeing and academic performance is what we as teachers should be looking out for, and Social-Emotional Learning (SEL), an integral part of holistic human development, matters much more than ever.
In this seminar led by ELG's Art Therapist, Tingting Chen, you will learn about the benefits of developing students' social and emotional well-being, the basic competencies of SEL and its meaningful impact on students, and how to create a positive SEL environment that accommodates diverse learners in the classroom.
