In preparation for next year’s 1:1 roll-out in our twelve elementary schools, a year ago this month an invitation went out to all K-4 teachers to join the 2015-2016 Elementary Design Team. Twenty-three teachers from across the district were chosen to receive professional development during the summer and throughout the current school year.
Last Thursday, the Design Team met for their final training this school year. At the end of the day, we asked for them to reflect on what they’ve learned this year, and on how their students have grown. In the next several days, HSE21 Shorts will be sharing these reflections — you’ll be amazed at the insights these teachers (and their students) have gained! And, if this year has been any indication, next year’s most popular hashtags will be #transformativelearning and #studentcenteredinstruction!
