Coaching Logs and Off-Contract Events

After spring break we will send a form for submitting links to your coaching logs. This will help us better organize the tremendous amount of content. Also, we are looking at alternative methods for demonstrating your coaching.

Stay tuned as well for more potential off-contract events. :)

Diffusion Simulation Game

To help us prepare for VanCon, we'd love for you to play the Diffusion Simulation Game designed to help you determine steps for getting teachers to adopt an innovation.

Full instructions are found on the main page, so be sure to read them carefully. Let's see how many adopters you can get! When you finish the game, be sure to download and save your game log.

If you think you've been truly successful at getting folks to adopt your innovation, send your game log to Heather. Vanguard will have a prize for the person with the highest number of adopters!!

Diffusion Simulation Game

You'll need to create an account the first time you play!
