June Community Challenge: Get SmartWired!
[SmartWired is no longer accessable for free download, but the forum is still live and available for comment.]
Do you learn something new by reading about it? Or do you prefer to listen to instructions? Or maybe you take a hands-on approach? There are many ways to learn and each person has his or her own best learning style. Which approach is best for students in a SEED classroom? To find out, students at SEED schools get SmartWired.
What is SmartWired?
SmartWired is a SEED activity that helps each child understand and use their best learning talents both in and outside of the classroom. It also allows their parents, teachers, and mentors to offer guidance to help children overcome challenges. But getting SmartWired isn’t just for students—it’s for all of us.
What's the challenge?
SEED wants each of its community members to get SmartWired. Knowing your own personal learning style can affect many aspects of your life in a positive way. For this month only, you can download and print the SmartWired instructions and activity cards for free! It will take about 30 minutes to complete the activity yourself. Once you’re done, answer our SmartWired poll to compare your results with the rest of the community’s.
Where can I find resources for SmartWired?
The SmartWired instructions and activity cards are available for download and printing this month in seven languages:
|Download SmartWired in Arabic|
|Download SmartWired in Chinese|
|Download SmartWired in English|
|Download SmartWired in French|
|Download SmartWired in Portuguese|
|Download SmartWired in Russian|
|Download SmartWired in Spanish|
More resources for SmartWired can be found on PlanetSEED and in our forums. The creators and authors of SmartWired David Peck and Angie McArthur will be interacting with community members in the forum and in our poll during this challenge. Got questions? Ask them here!
Want to take it a step farther? Help students or your own kids get SmartWired, too!
SEED is happy to introduce a new online workshop training that will prepare you to teach others about SmartWired and how to unlock the full potential of the children around you. There are 7 modules that run 5-10 minutes each (available in English only for now). Try it with the students and kids in your life today!
