Additions and Adjustments
AI Professional Development Adjusting Innovation PD Scheduling a Meeting with me Displaying Student Projects
1: AI Professional Development
At least one in-person PD Updates, tips, and resources Everyone should attend
2: Adjusting Innovation PD this year
IN PERSON PD: Optional to attend, but EVERYONE must attend one. I will suggest which grade levels would most benefit in the Innovation PD announcement via email and share resources. Sign up for the PD early so I can cater the PD to your needs! Talk to your colleagues about attending one of the PDs in a group for collaboration opportunities!
3: Scheduling a Meeting
Option 1: We have a conversation in person, confirm meeting date/time, and I will add it to Google Calendar in that moment Option 2: Email conversation and Google Calendar invitation Option 3: You can add a meeting on MY Google Calendar and then EMAIL me so I can confirm!
3: Scheduling a Meeting
Notes on Scheduling a Meeting Please include SPECIFIC TIMES for meeting, not blocks IF YOU ARE NEW, please meet with me in the first month or so of school. If you can, please check my Google Calendar to make sure there are no conflicts! Look for the blocks of PURPLE on my calendar.
4: Displaying Student Projects
I would like to improve on this from last year! Any help would be great! This is not a strong suit of mine. Focus on the PROCESS and the FINISHED PRODUCTS Makes us all look good! :)
Big Picture Plans and Goals
Innovation Center and Program
Innovation Center Use
An extension of YOUR CLASSROOM Innovation Center is for EVERYONE Instead of me pushing into your classroom for our project collaborations, you can bring your class to the innovation center!
Sharing the Innovation Center Space
Sign-up system, TBD Ideally, individuals, groups, or classes could sign out spaces for use Probably through Google Calendar
How will I use the Innovation Center?
Multiple projects going on at the same time, Nina will float between spaces As students and teachers grow in their knowledge of using the tech tools, more autonomy will be given to teachers and students during projects and space use
DO NOT WORRY!!!
Everyone has different comfort levels using tech tools and overseeing their use We can work together to find a work flow that makes you comfortable I am here to support you!
