How might we educate teachers in technology based activities/tools?
When thinking about this ‘how might we’ question, the first thing that comes to mind as a potential issue is TIME. I am unable to meet with teachers before or after school, and lunch time likely won’t work either.
While I would love to tell my school leadership that teachers need more time off (like a half day in order to meet and plan), I suspect this isn’t possible.
To test out some ways I can reach out to teachers, I plan on:
(1) Sending out a link to a Google form with some questions (and while I know it would be best to ask these questions during a meeting, that’s not possible…yet). I will be curating questions to this and my goal is to send out the link on Monday, December 5 (after report cards are due!).
(2) Creating resources to be sent out to teachers (in the form of a video that I create, or a Google Slide with information). I don’t think I would have enough time, or resources, to send this out weekly, I’m thinking of doing it once or twice a month. I will be talking to my principal about this on Friday (as we are all trying to be mindful to not overwhelm teachers – so maybe rather then me sending out this separately, it could be included in her weekly blog to teachers).
