Online Learning Planner

I do not teach any classes with any real curriculum so this was an exercise in understanding what teachers need to do. I also do not participate in this 7Cs professional growth model.

I have created a mock unit planner for the CORE class. But more than content, I am more concerned with how students access the material, complete the exercises and keep in touch with me. I have two separate IPs and coordinating between them is a lot of work to track who is where.

I have created their classes in ManageBac where I provide instructions for the day and a pdf of the ppt that we share plus any resources in the FILES section of ManageBac. This class is a tutorial on ManageBac so I try to use many of the functions to model how students will need to use them in the future. I zoom in daily to arrange my face-to-face sections of the lesson. I have also created screencasts in Loom in case my internet is not stable enough in quarantine to host the zoom lessons. These screencasts are posted in the ManageBac class as review for all students who are in school but also for those who are working online so they don’t have to zoom in synchronously for this class. I have reached out to anyone who was not physically present and provide them links and pdfs.

The content of this class is less formal than others so I don’t want to make students perform this synchronously. Given they are in different timezones I want to try to allow them to access the screencasts at their convenience. I email each student who is not in class or in a zoom and check in with them to make sure they have everything they need.

Welcome to your Professional Learning Blog! This is a place for you to post your goals, and reflect on them throughout the year.

  • Decide on your goal, perhaps in consultation with your colleagues or principal, and create a post to share with this online professional learning community that you are now a part of! Categorise this post in Goal Setting. Set your goal by considering:
    • Self assessment and reflection based on new teacher standards  (Tripod 7C’s)
    • Previous or new observation data from peers and principals
    • Student surveys (online surveys developed and aligned with 7C’s)
  • Identify colleagues, coaches, principals etc. that will play a supporting role in achieving your goal, and invite them to view and comment on your post. Encourage them to bookmark your blog and visit regularly.
  • Throughout the year, collect and share evidence to support your progress. Categorise these posts in Reflection.
  • Encourage your colleagues to share your learning journey by engaging with your blog. In return, engage with their blog (and others across the School)
  • You may also like to share work that your students have created or your own professional achievements that may not be directly related to your goal setting. This is encouraged! Categorise these posts as Showcase.
