Executive Function and Time Management: Practical Strategies for Remote Learning

Thurs 4/23 and 4/30 from 4-5:30 (include optional Q and A from 5:30-6)
Tues 4/21 and 4/28 from 4-5:30 (include optional Q and A from 5:30-6)

As schools turn to remote learning, students at all grade levels are now required to use time management strategies  and to plan, organize, and prioritize their time independently without the structure that teachers provide on a daily basis in their classrooms. This shift poses a major challenge for all students and their families, and especially for students with learning differences such as ADHD or dyslexia. WIthout executive function strategies, students will struggle to engage in the learning process, and will not be able to plan or complete online assignments while they are isolated at home and required to learn independently.

ResearchILD’s SMARTS Executive Function program is a research-based tool used by educators around the world to teach executive function strategies explicitly in the context of academic content across the grades and content areas. In response to the dramatic shift towards remote learning, and the increased strain on teachers, parents, and students, we have developed a unique online executive function workshop series designed to help students to develop and use time management strategies while learning at home.

During two 90 minute sessions, participants will learn hands-on strategies to help students apply strategies that allow them to accurately and efficiently prioritize tasks and be productive. Workshops will feature 4 comprehensive lessons from the SMARTS Executive Function curriculum, including lesson plans, activities, handouts, reflection sheets, and optional PowerPoint Presentations. Attendees will also receive access to all four SMARTS lessons plans, worksheets for immediate use, as well as training videos and materials.

We hope you can join us for this unique opportunity to learn new approaches to supporting students who struggle with remote learning.
