Cloud Collaboration Training
Teachers of Mathematics
Improving math state exam scores is a high priority in accomplishing the school’s goal of obtaining an A rating. In response to the demands of the new common core and new teacher evaluation system there is a greater demand for teacher collaboration. In an effort to meet your school’s goal to improve test scores you will be trained on how to collaborate using cloud tools. Using cloud tools will impact time efficiency, streamline processes, improve accessibility, math coach can monitor work less paper waste and there are many more advantages we will discover.
Your department consists of ten end users. The Nine end users are 6,7 and 8th grade general and special education teachers and your coach. The department members day to day responsibilities for common planning include: lesson plan collaboration, unit plan collaboration, student assessments planning, student data analysis and sharing, grades creation and sharing, teacher reflections. Some teachers are issued laptops and those teachers with smartboards are given macs. A need analysis form has been created to further assess individual training needs of the department. You are required to have your laptops and/or macs available throughout the training.
