One Size Doesn't Fit All

One Size Doesn’t Fit All

“One size doesn’t fit all” is our approach to technology integration professional development (PD).  We believe that teaching teams can learn better when they have customised and just-in-time professional development.  In 3.5 hours, with supply teachers hired, grade level teachers and specialist teams can share best practices and learn new ways to transform their classrooms to better support student learning.

This year, being our iPad 1:1 teaching team for two years already, Gr.1 teachers have found the need to work with LTT on a number of interesting topics:

  1. Review of 2 years old 1:1 iPad – teachers share their feedback
  2. Design parent survey to get feedback about the 1:1 program
  3. Review Gr.1 student iPad apps for 2017-2018
  4. Learn and make videos with Green Screen by Do Ink
  5. Learn and use Blue Bot App (to be continued)

Gr.3 teachers are excited to start 1:1 iPad in 2017-2018 school year.  They have found these topics to work on:

  1. Sharing of 1:1 Pilot iPad experience – Ms Kam shared with team her class experience using 1:1 iPad from Sep to Mar
  2. Review Gr.3 student iPad apps for 2017-2018
  3. Review Gr.3 New iPad Apps
    1. Kaleidoscope Camera
    2. Foldify
    3. Green Screen
    4. Path On
    5. Coding with Hopscotch (link to Math unit)
    6. Coding with Micro:bit (link to Energy unit)

Teachers left with lots of practical ideas and ways to embed technology in their up coming units.
