Is there a teacher (or teachers) you admire that you’d like to nominate for a video? Let me (and them) know you’ve seen their great teaching! Let’s share the love.
This is your official invitation!
Who: You (Yes, you!)
What: We need videos of your teaching to share with the others in the Summit Academy community.
(These can be anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes in length.)
When: Today, tomorrow, next week, anytime. I’d love to record or help you set up your recording, of something that you are really excited about or at least willing to share with others in our Summit Academy community.
Do you have a really great routine for starting your class?
Do your students do well with a specific instructional strategy?
Do you have a lesson coming up that you absolutely love?
Where: Your Classroom
Why: We are building a video exchange for all of the Summit Academy campuses. Join use at Summit Academy Exchange on Edivate.
* You will help us build our professional community, increase collaboration among our colleagues, and show off a little.
How: Record with your device, or I will come and set up a Swivl. I can start it for you, or we can do a quick training.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Thanks to the STEM Action Center Professional Learning Grant we now have Swivl robots available for teachers to begin capturing their teaching. You can learn from your own teacher and/or share with your colleagues.
"Using the Swivls has been a very easy and much improved method of recording teaching in the classroom. The app has a quick walk-through which gives a quick concise idea of what it is capable of. Set-up took no longer than a minute and I was ready to roll. I love being able to start the recording by pressing the button on the device around your neck. It is a very unobtrusive way to start a recording without the students' attention going to the recording device. This gives you a very natural start and finish to your videos that get right to the teaching moment. Definitely worth giving it a try!" - Alan Larson, Draper Music Teacher
