In the afternoon, Brian Crawford walked the teachers through a debriefing session, so they could hear about tools and workshops they were unable to attend and experience themselves, and then talked about the importance of lesson planning with technology in mind. Teachers talked about how to utilize different types of tools and resources depending on their intent, and how technology tools could be used for planning, instruction, assessment, and data collection.
Teachers were then tasked with working within their content departments to plan a lesson that incorporated one piece of technology that they had worked with that day, teach the lesson, and then report back to their colleagues on the results at their next faculty meeting. The final step of the process was for teachers to design a technology SMART Goal, which could become part of the professional APPR portfolio.
Feedback on the Technology Summit was overwhelmingly positive, with many teachers asking for more time to explore the technology and resources. CLV looks forward to a continued collaborative partnership with CA and Erie 1 BOCES technology experts to further bring technology into our classrooms.
