SOLE/Flexible Seating:  This Ed Camp will explore why as an IB World School, student inquiry is central to the program. Teachers have found in Student Organized Learning Environment (SOLE) a teaching approach that encourages the inquire process and student action. A critical part of implementing a SOLE in the classroom is through the use of flexible seating. During a SOLE, students get to  choose where and how they sit. They may collaborate using whiteboard tables, or flip-up whiteboard table-tops to sketch out a plan for the presentation portion of their SOLE. During this EDCAMP, attendees will get an overview of the philosophy behind SOLE, how to implement a SOLE in the classroom, and how to use flexible seating to support students during the process. Led by GIS Teachers April Sauler and Adrian Peer.
