Teaching and Learning with Technology: Blended Learning Group
I am excited about the opportunity to work with a small group of Mount Vernon teachers throughout the year in a blended learning model. Teachers involved in this project will meet a 3 times during the year in a group and then will participate in online discussions,webinars and projects as they practice what they are learning in the classroom. I will also be visiting with these teachers in their classrooms and modeling lessons. This class will be designed to meet the needs and goals of the teachers who are participating.
If you are a Mount Vernon Schools teacher interested in being considered for this group. Please complete this form. If there is more interest than space available, you may be placed on a waiting list with priority for the next school year.
Applications will be open until September 20. I will review the responses and send out invitations and waiting list notices on Sept. 23.
Limit: 10 teachers ( preference to a variety of grade levels and content areas)
