    • INFOGRAPHIC: Flow of Professional Development in Schools

    •  I created an infographic based on a conversation that I had with teachers and administrators at EdCamp Buffalo last weekend. During the conversation, I was explaining that Professional Development sometimes falls flat because the groundwork hasn't been properly laid. In essence, professionals don't always understand or contribute to their needs around meaningful Professional Development. I created a flowchart in the moment, but thought I would use an infographic maker, Piktochart, to better visualize the conversation.

  • We would like to pilot a 21st Century elective for 8th graders. Does anyone have curriculum or resource ideas?

  • Beverly:
    For a book study for folks within the same school or district, I'd suggest looking at a few essential questions. Each session can focus on one or more chapters. In your discussion, you could ask:
    --> What new ideas emerged for you in the chapter?
    --> What support for this idea already exists in your district?
    --> Besides adding technology, what else will need to change to make this idea happen in your district?
    --> What initial change / replacement / upgrade can you make to get started?
    Of course, your group may come up with better questions :)
    Let us know how it goes!

  • Book study is a terrific idea Beverly. I pulled the Tyson and November chapter for a shorter study with my teachers. Using a Google Doc might be a simpler approach than a wiki.

  • Is there anyone ready to pilot a totally new concept in the social sciences for K-8? Since it's not under NCLB scrutiny, let's explore this together. I used the new framework I researched in Chile, South America for five years, and the results were phenomenal. Click on my name and go to my blog on the topic so we can discuss this further.
