SBAC Ideas - TPDLs What are things that primary teachers need to do to prepare k-2 students for Smarter Balanced? Should there be optional PD for teachers of k-2 students? What makes sense for your school population? Focus/differentiate PD for k-2 teachers to help prepare rising students. Elicit input from k-2 teachers. Keep in mind that our k-2 student are digital natives. Team up as TPDLs at one site to offer differentiated PD. Triaging requests for support. Make sure electric infrastructure can support hardware EdCamp technology pd - March 7 - Sean Hutchinson to provide more info Hour of code - Liz Hirtenstein We need to add a calendar of event to share drive Send directions on how to share/move documents from private drive to another drive - Christina Hefele Google chat/google doc pd. Voxer - to tweet one another - instant IM for instant feedback.
