Tech PD for Teachers
I have been asked to run part of the technology professional development for teachers before school starts. The group I am going to work with will be the "high fliers" or the "fish grou" (I have no idea where that name came from). I immediately made a list of the apps and tools I have been most excited to learn this summer but was struggling with how to present it. I wanted to use the new Google Sites but I still find the interface cumbersome.
Then I remembered Tracy Enos's playlist. Tracy is an 8th grade ELA teacher in the West Warwick Public Schools who I meet at the Digital Literacy Institute this summer. Tracy granted me permission to use some of her examples as I think it is much more meaningful for teachers to SEE how other teachers are using tools successfully with student. I also loved how Tracy checked how the app could be used.
I did still put it in a Google Site so I could present it as a tool but the meat of the playlist is in a Google Doc.
