Lesson 8 - Sections - 8A 8B 8C 8D 8E
Teachers dedicate time to collaborate with both colleagues and students to improve practice, discover and share resources and ideas, and solve problems.
- Teachers dedicate planning time to collaborate with colleagues to create authentic learning experiences that leverage technology.
- Teachers collaborate and co-learn with students to explore and experiment with digital tools and resources that support learning, and to diagnose and troubleshoot technology issues.
What can happen when teachers are provided time to collaborate as a faculty or district? What can happen when teachers and their students collaborate? Who benefits? Let's take a look. Here, I've shared several Edutopia videos and articles about collaboration. Spend 45-60 minutes in this section exploring things that you've not viewed yet. The purpose is to expose you to some ideas how this is happening in schools now, and around which I'd like you to have a discussion with your group in Canvas. Take some notes about ideas that stand out to you! Then, let's talk about them. Hopefully, these will spark ideas of your own! Share ideas and strategies of your own with us.
