The Seven Steps Workshop is an interactive session where you get to try the activities, both on your own and in groups. We therefore require each participant to attend using their own device. It will ensure you get the most out of the activities and the session. We also recommend using headsets if you are sitting in the same room as other participants.
Handouts before and after each session - be sure you don't miss them!
A small percentage of participants may not receive emails from us due to some domains blocking our automated emails.

How is Seven Steps Online different from the Tool Kit and Manuals?
While Seven Steps Online contains everything you and your school needs to unlock the power of the Seven Steps, the Tool Kits and Manuals offer another option for teachers who prefer things in hard copy.
One of the most important things when implementing change in a school is to make it simple for each and every teachers. The printed resources therefore, offer a way for those who prefer to quickly find resources, activities or lessons from a hard copy book. However, these resources are specifically designed to supplement a School PD, Workshop, Coaches Course or Seven Steps Online theory videos rather than providing development for teachers.
We’re also dedicated in continuing to provide valuable content to our members. As we continue to try, test and discover what resources teachers like, we will continue to develop more and more of those resources for Seven Steps Online.
