Guest Post via @ndnred: Instructional Coaching and Student Work

The title says it all!!!  One of my main priorities as an instructional coach is to develop capacity in teachers and therefore impact student learning.  As I reflect (and I do that a lot) on this school year as it gets closer and closer to ending, I can’t help but be proud of the work that our students have done in all areas, especially in digital learning.  Not only have they learned from the teachers and me, we have learned from them.

Recently, I asked some 5th-grade students to help me with a presentation.  The presentation was to be a showcase of what our school had done with digital learning this year.  At first, I thought I would have to give the students a lot of directions and guidance.  I was totally off base on that!!!  They created a Powtoon and a Screencastify to display our digital learning this year.  I am so proud of them.  Here’s the link to their Powtoon LRES Powtoon Digital Learning.

I plan to continue learning and growing this summer.  I’ve been selected to be a presenter for the @CCSTechCamp.  At this camp, I will show teachers how to create teacher and student blogs, how to create a Symbaloo and hyperdocs.  I have also been asked to do an too!!  This will be a first for me but I accept the challenge.

Until next time!
