A couple of weeks ago, my principal asked me to do a technology training for the other teachers. As a teacher of the littles, I sometimes feel like I don't feel always comfortable in front of adults. But I did say yes and started to develop a plan to have the teachers "go to" stations for different things. So Thursday morning, we started the training (45 minutes late because the admin wanted to see the training.) I shared with the staff this DLL program that I was a part of and the term COVA. At the beginning, the teachers were not really moving, but they got to learn some different technology. I did a Google Form for the teachers to fill out and they liked exploring the different things. I know it helped that I allowed them to choose their stations and take ownership with their learning. I am passionate in learning technology, but I know that some are not, so giving the teachers options let them pick.
Here is the list of stations (if you are wondering)-
1. Seesaw Activity Library/ set up Seesaw too
2. QR codes/ URL shorteners
3. Google forms/ sheets
4. Digital Books- Epic/ Tumble Books
5. Green screen
7. Creativity- piccolloge/ chatterpix
