Instructional Tech Talk
December 2018 Issue 10
December is always a busy month yet the great work by staff and students continues. Classes continue to take risks, try new things, and let students create and innovate! It is always a joy to listen to students talk about their learning or trials with enthusiasm and excitement. As we look ahead to the holiday's, time with family and time to refresh; keep in mind it's also a good time to sneak some professional reading, or learning in, while in the comfort of your own home.
Our Hour of Code event was a great success and left staff and students looking for continued ways to include coding and coding concepts in their daily work. I'm looking forward to seeing this excitement continue and grow.
As you plan for the upcoming semester, please keep the integration and collaboration projects coming my way. I'm here to help any way I can!
If you are interested in collaborating, please reach out to me if you have ideas about how we can work together.
Keep your eyes peeled for some Polar PD opportunities where you can enjoy the comfort of your couch, PJ's all while getting a little professional learning in :)
