Who is Jigsaw Learning?

Get to know us a little better including how we can support organizations in a number of areas.

Schedule a Conversation

Through a Collaborative Response lens, we can provide support in the following areas:

Beginning Teachers

A teacher's first years can make or break their experience and may influence them throughout their career. Establishing or strengthening your beginning teacher program to ensure consistency will lead to increased efficacy in classrooms as well as staff retention.

Curriculum, Assessment and Instruction

Determining essential outcomes, developing purposeful assessment plans,and delivering “best practice” learning opportunities are key factors in supporting students. Clear expectations and strategic implementation of curriculum, assessment, and instruction focus are crucial for school success.

Digital Supports

The effective implementation and sustainability of digital solutions in schools can be complex and challenging on many levels. To truly make a difference for the success of students, it necessitates a robust roll-out and coordinated learning plan.

Early Years

The investment in early years is integral to a solid support system across a school or district. Establishing beliefs, shared vision, common purpose and developing collective capacity are all elements of establishing the foundations for early learning.

Educational Assistants

Educational Assistants play an important role in every school. Articulating roles and responsibilities of educational assistants as well as understanding the important work they do is integral to how they effectively support students and families. Explore an online educational assistant learning series available for asynchronous learning opportunities.

Indigenous Partner Support

Our team has experience working with Educational Authorities to provide supports in a number of areas that honour and respect culture, relationships and indigenous ways of knowing and being.

Inclusive Supports

Providing a consistent, well articulated system of Inclusive Supports is an integral part of how a school ensures effective learning opportunities for all. Scaffolding teams, exploring and advancing the principles of inclusion and articulating processes and structures are important elements of inclusive supports.

Literacy

Literacy is a primary focus for all schools and districts. While every classroom and every teacher engages in literacy practices, there is a wealth of learning in providing effective literacy programming and assessment.

Numeracy

Attaining strong skills in numeracy is an indicator of successful academic achievement and lifelong learning for which all schools and districts strive. Our team can support teachers and leaders in creating a foundational understanding of numeracy through a balanced approach that focuses on curriculum, pedagogy and assessment.

Online Learning

Online teaching and learning requires a systemic understanding of what this type of learning involves and consideration of its associated best practices. To ensure students and families experience success online a variety of mediums, approaches, and contexts should be considered. Our team can help!

Responsive Behaviour Support

Establishing Responsive Behaviour Support ensures positive learning experiences for all. The implementation of a behaviour continuum of supports, behaviour matrix and the focus on establishing routines are all integral components of a responsive behaviour system.

Reviews and Documentation

Our team can work with your organization to conduct external reviews, develop documentation and other resources, and provide feedback, particularly on your Collaborative Response structures and processes.

School Leadership

School leadership is a challenging yet rewarding experience. Supporting school leaders through coaching and mentoring can ensure leadership success, impact and higher levels of retention.

System Leadership

System leaders require a vast expanse of skill sets as well as the ability to guide and support others. Visioning and engaging in effective strategic planning provides the context for working with teams and moving a system to success.

Wellness and Community

As we are faced with troubling and uncertain times, we seek solutions that will fill the gaps being created in new circumstances. Building a thriving conscious community begins with the examination of each individual and reflecting on how we know and understand ourselves. Our togetherness can be explicitly and intentionally grown to build a community that provides for all of its members.

Collaborative Response will be PRSD’s vehicle for change!

Responsive Behaviour Support: Crisis Management

Having a predetermined set of strategies and supports in place in the event of severe behaviour situations is critical when a student is out of control, potentially harmful to others or possibly self-injurious. Understanding your school’s processes and procedures is critical when a student crisis occurs as it typically involves a team approach to respond in the most appropriate manner.
