As I mentioned recently in this post, I am going to try to join the 30-Day Blogging Challenge for Teachers. I may not stick to the suggestions for topics outlined in the challenge since I’m not a classroom teacher. I’ll adapt when necessary.
Here goes – Day 1…
My Goals for This Year
Build on my relationships with faculty and staff. Relationships are key to all of our success.
Create and spread the word about a global project that will engage classrooms in our schools and beyond. We participate in global projects, but how about starting one?! I’m ready and hope to make an impact on the students in our schools. Are you?
Support, guide, and explore the benefits of having our first 1:1 pilot, which we’re calling 1:World. Two teams of four teachers, one grades 3-4 and the other grades 5-8 will have enough Chromebooks for each student to call their own. That’s a first in our schools; we’ve been hoping for this for a while.
Developing a growth mindset for technology integration. Some of us are positive, some are not. Let’s all look forward. I love the bulletin board in this post. How can I adapt that for our work with integrating technology?
Win the school NFL football pool at least once this season. Hey, you never know. It’s happened before; it can happen again.
What are YOUR goals for this year?
