a reflection on a recent classroom evaluation....
Hi all. Just thought I would share some thoughts / comments on a recent classroom evaluation and global learner tools / strategies..
A couple of weeks ago I was formally evaluated as part of my job performance as a classroom teacher. Of note was my evaluator's remark that "I used technology appropriately and seamlessly in my lesson." (paraphrased....)
My oh my! How has my approach to classroom presentation changed in the 18 mo I have been a global learner? Gone are the overhead transparencies! Gone is me chained to the overhead projector! Gone is the one-way flow of communication! They have been replaced by the interactive smartboard, on-demand videos, interactive virtual labs and powerpoints + many more tools.
I am appreciative of the Global Learner program and the opportunity I have had to "re-invent" myself as a classroom teacher. I am appreciative of the interactions with other global learners as well as truly thankful to the efforts of Dave and Joe to promote this forum and philosophy!
