"If we're not challenging, we're not changing."
  • What take-away from our first session has challenged you the most?
    • There was a lot of technology and I need to pick and focus on one (wikispace)
  • In what way(s) does that connect to or potentially support your selected focus?
    • Wikispaces will allow more opportunities for my students to learn what they are interested in.
  • How have you allowed that challenge to manifest itself in your practice? In students practice?

Autonomy:

The element of my practice I'd like to tinker with is providing more opportunities for my students to explore topics/concepts/ examples they find interesting, and ways that can document their learning and share what they have learned with others.

Purpose:

  • Goal - The goal of my effort is to allow learners to explore topics that interest them.


  • Question - The fundamental question I will be exploring is... (draft a focus question and subquestions and be prepared to revise these throughout the challenge). How can I foster inquiry?



Growth:

The most appropriate type of data for me to collect as evidence of growth... Student work samples and reflections

(suggestions)
  • anecdotal records
  • student reflections
  • teacher reflections
  • observations
  • peer/colleague feedback
  • assessment data
    • rubrics
    • other formative pieces...

  • surveys
  • counts
  • student work samples
  • more...


Resources:

My learning network will include (books, articles, websites, people, other)... People
