Introducing the SMALLab Leadership Academy
Developing educational leaders in embodied learning
As tech-enabled classrooms continue to proliferate, SMALLab is committed to providing growth opportunities to educators and administrators of all levels of experience.
The SMALLab Leadership Academy develops educational leaders around the technology and teaching of SMALLab. The Academy supports effective SMALLab teaching and learning while developing teachers as leaders on campus. The program is a blended learning experience that integrates self-paced projects, writing reflections, in person collaborations, and virtual conferences. The program also is aligned with the national Teacher Leader Standards (www.teacherleaderstandards.org) and addresses each of the 7 leadership domains.
Members of the SMALLab Leadership Academy love embodied learning and are committed to increasing their skills and building capacity in their districts by delivering SMALLab training to others. Through this expansion in both knowledge and awareness, members help their districts address personnel changes and further integrate embodied learning into course curricula.
