Foundational Concepts for LLI Mississippi

Teachers who empower students work to consistently engage them in content material while also offering a safe learning environment that creates the opportunities for them to speak out, engage with peers, and be risk takers throughout the learning process.

Empowered students need a foundation to communicate with others; therefore, they must be able to communicate in spoken word, written word, art, and media. Successful classrooms teach students how to communicate their personal views while also helping students to be able to receive others’ views in a respectful way.

Empowered teachers are intentional about building authentic relationships with each student in his/her classroom. This leads to the ability to provide a learning environment that meets each child’s individual needs while also showing the students that they are ca.red for and matter.

Collaborative learning empowers students to teach others and helps them to see the value in helping others as they work as part of a team to achieve common goals and problem solve.  

Students who see the value in what they are learning become more empowered learners. Because of this, applying knowledge and connecting it to real life experiences and career opportunities is vital.

Offering a balance of teaching strategies and assessments empowers students in a variety of ways, enhancing learning and bringing content to life. The use of a variety of instructional approaches and assessments strengthens student abilities across a wider spectrum.

Empowered classrooms show students that ultimately they are held accountable for their own learning. When students take ownership for learning, they want to come to class because learning becomes a more enjoyable experience.

Through the use of technology via a multitude of avenues, students become more empowered in the utilization and application of technology in both education and the real world.

Why LLI Mississippi?

Observable classroom practices with expert teachers

LLI Mississippi will provide live classroom observation of innovative learning at work. This year, we'll have over 40 fishbowls at all age levels, focusing on content from math to science to Makerspaces. Simply the most authentic professional development possible at a conference.

Active learning sessions mean that we practice what we preach. Presenters are asked to limit the Powerpoint time and develop hands-on strategies for session attendees. This gives time to create plans and artifacts with an expert guide instead of leaving the heavy lifting for later. You are guaranteed to have three or four actionable items to use on day one.

LLI Mississippi brings the quality of a national conference with the value that all schools can appreciate. Featuring hands-on professional development, breakfast and lunch for all attendees, access to top regional thought leaders, and membership in LLI's national network of educators, schools will discover what it really means to engage, empower, and transform.

LLI Mississippi is focused on providing the best student-centered learning strategies from the best teachers in the area. Practical techniques and passionate learning create powerful networks of educators from right down the street, giving you the support you need to help transform schools.
