This year we are changing some of how we do Professional Development. What we are thinking of doing is offering drop in sessions during Recess and Lunch and making it more relatable to what the teachers need on demand. We are always here to help, but this is a less intimidating way to work with larger groups of people.
We are calling our sessions >Towards Wicked (based on the New Horizons Report). What we are looking to do (eventually) is address some of the truly wicked problems we as teachers face. So the name came from there.
I’ve been spending more time outside with teachers as well. We are getting more buy in for the mix between environmental education and technology integration, so that is really exciting. We have many teachers out there using the iPads to uncover some of what they could be learning in the classroom.
