|Minnetonka Teaching & Learning Instructional Framework|
The 11th Annual Minnetonka District Tour: Deeper Learning in the 21st Century last week was a great success! We had 150 visitors from as far away as California, Texas, and Costa Rica come to Minnesota. They toured classrooms and attended sessions at Groveland Elementary, Minnetonka Community Education Center, Minnetonka High School, Minnetonka Middle School East, Scenic Heights Elementary, and Vantage. (Open any of those links to see the site tour details and content.) We heard great things from attendees who appreciated learning about all areas of teaching and learning with this year’s focus not just on technology but on our Framework. The Minnetonka Teaching and Learning Instructional Framework is the lens through which teachers and administrators design student experiences for meaning, engagement, and deeper learning.
