During December and January, teachers completed the technology self-evaluation and the technology training needs surveys. The ITAC committee asked teachers to complete the self-evaluation first in order to help them reflect on their current practice and areas in which they want to improve. We were hoping that by using reflection first, teachers would find the training needs survey more useful.
Now that the data is in, ITAC members are planning professional development. The first step is to set a time and date that works for as many people interested in the topic as possible. Using Doodle, we can contact all of the people who expressed interest in a topic with three different possible times during and after school. People choose the time(s) that work for them and we use that information to schedule the workshop and then invite everyone else. Our first workshop about using Chrome extensions and managing multiple log ins will be held on March 4th from 10:15-10:45. Technology PD is also the featured topic at the upcoming Middle School PD day on March 11th.
