Does your school run ‘Techie Brekkie’ sessions? Each fortnight at school, I run a session that is an optional extra for teachers to learn a bit more about some great ‘edtech’ tools.
Here is an overview of the sessions I have planned for the current term-
I have incorporated a sign up process so at the end of the year attendees will get a certificate of participated for their professional learning requirements.
I also think it is really important to have a ‘request’ feature, where teachers can request items to be covered, this way the sessions become a lot more personal and beneficial for the attendees.
Like extra-curricular activities for our students, I believe it is important to provide teachers with a similar option. Even though specific whole school and team professional learning is offered through the year in regards to eLearning and ICT, I think the ‘Techie Brekkie’ sessions are a great added extra for those teachers who want to go the extra step.
