Instructional Tech Talk

October 2018 Issue 6

Keep up the hard work!

Fall is upon us and the sugar of Halloween just around the bend. Throughout the district great things are occurring, staff and students are persevering and continuing to test the waters of NEW concepts, methods and learning tools. Keep up these great efforts, don't get discouraged if your students "don't get it", they will in time. Continue to give them opportunities to create and demonstrate their learning in non-traditional methods (analog or digital).

A reminder from a recent podcast I was listening too on the way to work...

  • "When things don’t go well, consider breaking out into smaller subgroups. This will allow you to better differentiate the students in your classroom and better meet their needs."-Jeff Bradbury & Nick Amaral, Ask The Tech Coach podcast

If you are interested in collaborating, please reach out to me if you have ideas about how we can work together.
