Arlington Heights SD25: Students Create Green Screen Animation @fuglefun

Arlington Heights SD25:  Students Create Green Screen Animation @fuglefun | PD & Articles | Scoop.it
Fourth grade students at Dryden Elementary were able to put their art into motion and see it come to life this past week.
 
Lead by Dryden Elementary School’s art teacher, Tricia Fuglestad, students used a still image of paintings they had done as inspiration to then, frame by frame, move a figure, taking a still shot every time. The idea was to combine aspects of still and moving art, using a green screen and music, to create a video of the figures dancing.

Jim Knight - Seven Ways Principals Can Support Instructional Coaches | PD & Articles | Scoop.it
School leaders need to communicate clearly and support both teachers and coaches. By Jim Knight

In the past decade, I have worked with more than 20,000 instructional coaches from six different continents. One of the most important things I’ve learned is that a principal’s support or lack of support can make or break a coaching program. Below, I identify seven ways principals can and should support coaches.

Instructional Coaches: How Do You Evaluate Your Impact? | Coaching | LEARNing To LEARN

Instructional Coaches: How Do You Evaluate Your Impact? | Coaching | LEARNing To LEARN | PD & Articles | Scoop.it
Instructional coaches (IC's) are one group that are a bit more removed from students. Don't jump to any negative conclusions with that last sentence. What I mean is that, although they impact students in positive ways, they are a bit more separated from the consistent daily involvement that classroom teachers have with students.

Instructional coaches can have an enormous impact on the teaching and learning that happens in a school. Technology coaches help bridge the learning gap between teachers and technology. Content coaches can help teachers gain a better understanding of standards and subjects. Instructional coaches can help teachers improve their instructional practices in any subject at any time.

There are at least five reasons why schools should have instructional coaches. It's not that all teachers are weak and need help. It's about the idea that we all have blind spots (Otto Scharmer) and coaches can help others see their blind spots. According to this article in the New Yorker, even doctors have coaches to help them improve and see their blind spots.

Reflecting on education Twitter chats | the édu flâneuse | PD & Articles | Scoop.it

Chats can fall prey to … a lack of meaningful connections (with people or ideas), superficial conversations, and a lack of some sort of closure. If mismanaged, preplanned chats can sometimes feel contrived.

Twitter and Facebook in the classroom is a great tool in reminding students and parents of homework, upcoming projects, and quizzes/tests to study for.  This tool engages parents in their child's education.  We even use this method along with mass text messages that shares the same information.

Integrating Technology Instructional Coaching
Hampton High School has integrated technology across its entire program with a full-time instructional coach who supports the teachers in this work.

 

The presence of a coach sharpens the school's focus on how technology can best make the learning more engaging and relevant for students, and gives teachers support in navigating the vast field of technology applications and devices. Many teachers either do not have the time or might even be resistant to bringing technology into their classroom; others may think it's just about doing the same thing with new tools.

 

A good instructional coach not only provides teachers with the resources, support, and know-how on working with technology, but also ensures the smart use of technology to deepen the teaching and learning for all involved.
