ALUMNI CONNECT WITH STUDENTS IN DISTANCE LEARNING

This year the Grade 8 Humanities classes worked on a design thinking project that explored 'How should we remember the past in order to impact the present and influence the future?'

The students studied the political, social, and economic factors in Weimar Germany that led to the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis, and read the novel Prisoner B-3087. Throughout the novel study, they explored how authors use setting, point of view, motif, symbolism, mood, and juxtaposition to tell a biographical story. The students then did a modified version of the genocide memorial project for distance learning that previous Grade 8 classes completed.

The students focused on the Holocaust only and worked individually to construct their models from materials they had around their homes while in quarantine and distance learning (cardboard, plastic containers, etc.).

After reaching out to Nido Alumni via the Nido Alumni Association, architects Juan Pablo Lira '92, Gustavo Fabbroni '74, and Roberto Pinon '92 were all kind enough to volunteer their time and energy to help our students by reviewing the students' prototypes. They reviewed each prototype and gave detailed feedback that the students used to improve their designs.


A special thank you to Juan Pablo Lira who went above and beyond in connecting with our students virtually in this project. He worked with our Humanities teachers on some of the lesson planing and even taught a few lessons on architecture, sketching, and model building to our students. It was such a positive and impactful experience for our students to work with alumni from Nido who are now working as professional architects. Nido alumni who would like to be connected to projects at Nido like these may contact alumni@nido.cl for more information.

Team Coaching Cycles During Hybrid and Distance Learning

Nido Learning Coaches Tom Ferrebee and Nicole Zito recently shared with Student-Centered Coaching expert Diane Sweeney how they have been able to coach our teachers from a distance over the past year and now in the Hybrid model. While challenging, they also found new possibilities for how they collaborate with our teachers.
