Transcript of Collaborate, Communicate and Educate

How has our question changed?
We have encouraged our staff to play with new forms of technology and explore possibilities with the use of digital tools. This year we are encouraging more of a focus on assessment both of students and ourselves. Teachers have already begun to explore the use of more 21st century forms of assessment with their students, but we are now encouraging teachers to assess themselves in reflecting on their practice, looking at what’s working and what’s not, and basing changes to their practice on those observations.

We concentrated on the exploration of different means of learning, technology and student assessment. Although teachers made observations of the effects of these changes in their classrooms, this year the staff at Sullivan Heights will be concentrating on assessing their own practises, looking for the value of these changes, both in the reception of learning by students, as well as the continuation of learning outside the classroom. Teachers need and want to explore if their learning and the changing of their teaching methods are making a positive difference in the lives of the students. How are we documenting our progress?
Teachers document/write their inquiry of interest - stating goals, possible obstacles, and needs to perform their inquiry.
Teachers are given the opportunity to share aspects of their research that can help one another through discussion, department meetings, and Professional Development
Teachers assess their progress towards their learning inquiry with pre and post lesson teacher assessment sheets, student assessment, self and peer evaluation, observations, and data from blogs and wikis.
Teachers are blogging their learning and sharing it out to others - networking in and outside their environment
