REVISED: Tech Integrators & Coaches - Session #2
Date: April 14, 2020
Time: 9:00 - 3:00 (9 AM - 2 PM starts, on the hour, 50 minutes/hour)
Location: Via ZOOM (Link to be distributed 24 hours in advance)
Facilitated By: Jim Moulton & Susie Simmons
Given the current (and for the foreseeable future) reality for Maine schools, the format and content for the April 14 event for Maine’s K-12 Technology Integrators and Coaches (TICs) has been modified significantly.
The day will now be made up of six 50-minute drop-in collaborative Office Hour sessions over ZOOM - beginning at 9, 10, and 11 AM, and 12, 1, and 2 PM.
Hosted by Jim Moulton and Bonny Eagle Tech Coach & ACTEM Board Member Susie Simmons, these peer-to-peer sessions will be a time for sharing what you see working in your school or district’s efforts. In addition, participants will have opportunities to share a challenge and receive peer input around possible solutions.
It will also serve simply as an opportunity for TICs to connect with their peers from across the state.
A few benefits of this change:
- This will be a ZOOM meeting, a tool that is being widely used across the state at school and district levels, as well as by the DOE.
- Office Hour meetings facilitated by the Maine DOE Content Specialists have been well attended and valued by participants as an opportunity to come together as “birds of a feather.”
- Our hope is that by moving this day to an online format, we will see participation grow from across the state. While the initial gathering on January 28th drew participants from across the state, we know that distance stopped many TICs from being able to attend.
Participants are welcome to attend as many of the Office Hours as they would like, and are asked not to worry about leaving an Office Hour early… We all understand these are different times!
