We are almost halfway through the school year and my new role as a Technology Design Coach is as rewarding as it is challenging. Learning so many new things and understanding the different campus cultures is like a fast flowing winding river.
Here is a glimpse into my work this previous week!
Tuesday was all about early voting at Andrews Elementary School! Ms. Powell, the librarian, organized everything as a real election! Students entered the library with their "registration cards" ready, checked-in with 5th-grade volunteers and proceeded to a voting booth.
Class visits were on the agenda for Wednesday. Mr. Flores at Andrews Elementary School demonstrates how his 1st grade students are more than comfortable using iPads.
At Highland Park Elementary School on Thursday, Mr. Gay and Mr. Absher facilitated a PD for teachers on the basics of G Suite (Google Apps).
The week ended on Friday with a professional learning facilitated by MakerReady. These ready-to-go kits are available to teachers, librarians, or anyone wanting get in on the maker movement but may not know where to start.
