GaETC 20121Why do we need a Technology Leadership Forum?

Who areWe?23

What is the forum?

Who should be part of the forum?

How do you recruit participants?3How do you define passion?having or expressing strong

Passion (from the Latin verb patior, meaning to suffer or to endure, also related to compatible) is an emotion applied to a very strong feeling about a person or thing. Passion is an intense emotion compelling feeling, enthusiasm, or desire for something.

How do you pick the educators who will have the greatest impact?5

TLF members do lots of PL in the district- face to face and online14How TLF changed my classroom instructionIs just using it really a lofty goal? Bernajean Porter

I now consider these two questions about every lesson plan I create:

How would you want to use your class time with your students?

2) What would be the best use of face time with you and for students to have with each other?


Teachers in a flipped setting send their knowledge home to students (and their families) as 5-15 minute videos.

This frees up class time for students to work on homework, projects, and other assignments with the help of their teachers and peers.

Kids learn at different paces and the videos allow them to press rewind over and over again. Kids who are out sick never have to miss critical content again.

The emphasis for me was less about learning the latest and greatest technology tricksbut rather, looking honestly at what I was using and analyzing its worth for my students.

Flipping started my concept of designing the perfect Dream Class which is not onlyFlipped but also Inspired, Gamified, Project Based, and Differentiated!

Flipped Dream Class Results18Total instructional days Saved in first nine weeks of School = 23 !!Including 5 added Enrichment days!Unit Tests also were 1-2 percent higher on average

Unit 1 = 20 versus 33Unit 2 = 18 versus 21Unit 3 = 12 versus 1918Coaching othersThe biggest obstacles are being able to reach everyone and making it relevant at the time of training.Options: -Face to face whole group and small group meetings.- Online format with interaction, such as Edmodo.- Through the use of an online resource for on-demand learning, like Live Binder.

1919Summer CampsMany of the technologies I learned about were incorporated into a camp for middle school students.
