I am in my same role this year as an instructional coach and I couldn’t be more excited!!! During the summer I had the opportunity to present CCS Tech Camp featuring #hyperdocs, #symbaloo and #blogging! I enjoyed helping other educators learn how to use digital resources in their classrooms. I also did my first Ignite Talk about Twitter at the tech camp. It was the most nervous five minutes of my entire life!!!
I also fell in love with Flipgrid!!! So much so that I became a Flipgrid Ambassador and Certified Educator. I introduced this digital resource to a 5th grade class in the spring and they were very engaged and created their own Flipgrid accounts. At the beginning of the year, I created a Flipgrid for our staff. I shared an article with them about marigolds and walnut trees (Marigold Article). The Flipgrid asked them to respond to their article. My goal was to get 100% response rate and I’m still working on that. One of my 2nd grade teachers really embraced Flipgrid and used it with her students to respond to a story they read in class. She invited me to help her with the lesson and I was amazed at how the students responded to this activity using Flipgrid. I consider this a success!! If I can get one teacher excited about getting out of her comfort zone to help students realize their potential, then I’ve had a wonderful start to the year!!
