Flattening the learning curve. The steeper the angle, the harder and more stressful, the climb. We’ll share some essential gear to negotiate the abrupt shift to virtual classrooms and ease the incline.



Everyone—educators, students and parents—are experiencing the steepest learning curve in the history of education because of the transition to virtual teaching in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This session will provide practical strategies and advice for “flattening the learning curve” of online learning by creating happier, less stressful learning environments in our homes. ***

Over the years, Kim has seen many children struggle to read and has questioned how typical classroom reading practices can meet the learning needs of all students, especially those with reading disabilities, such as Dyslexia. Eager to make change and improvements in her own teaching practice, Kim began a career-changing journey to explore science-based, reading instruction programs, including the Orton-Gillingham (OG) and Multi-Sensory Structured Learning (MSSL) literacy approaches. Kim now embraces Structured Literacy in her own classroom practice and is committed to educating and supporting parents and other educators across the province.
