For the last session with our teachers we decided to focus on lesson planning and making goals for the summer.
We used the web tool Edpuzzle to flip part of our meeting. Teachers were asked to watch a video on the flipped model and answer questions we embedded into the video through Edpuzzle.
This is the video we used.
We started the meeting with a few questions about flipped classes such as pros, cons, and tools for flipping.
Next we looked at a few iPad lessons and determined which level the lesson was on the SAMR model and how the teacher could bump it up. This led us to creating our own lesson plan using the iPads.
Then we looked at our district's instructional goals for the iPads and talked about how we can individually contribute to those goals and prepare over the summer.
We used the app Chirp to send out this picture so we could reflect (and share if you wanted) on which part of the pencil we are and which part we want to be. This was a nice conclusion because our teachers were able to see how much they have improved and learned.
I was very impressed with the lessons that the teachers created and it was rewarding to see them confidently use the apps that we have been working on. We still have a lot to learn and next year will be a period of trial and error for all of us, but I'm so proud of how far we have come together.
