Audience: This is only open to the people who have been accepted to participate in the grant.

Dates: 3/8/2018

Location: Seneca Room

We are in our third and final year of implementing a Learning Technology Grant. The goal of the grant is to increase student-to-student collaboration, to experiment with cross-campus collaboration, and to promote learning that fosters students' critical thinking skills. We invite up to 4 teachers from the TST BOCES Campus and 4 teachers from the Groton Campus to join our current cohort of 4 teachers to join us in this work.

We use a fairly low-key process, known as Action Research, to help you identify a problem or challenge in your classroom related to collaboration or critical thinking that you would like to work on, to help you generate a technology integration strategy for addressing the problem/challenge, and to help you document the results as you implement this strategy over the course of the school year.

Participants who are selected will be paid for their Action Research planning time (6 sessions, each from 3:15 - 4:30, on the following Thursdays: January 18th, February 8th, March 8th, April 5th, April 26th, and May 17th.) Participants will also be paid for their co-planning time, if they are working together on a collaborative project across classrooms and/or campuses.

In addition, Technology Equipment can be purchased to support the integration strategies that participants generate.

We will be co-facilitating the Professional Development connected to this work, with Brian also providing classroom coaching for participants, as needed.

Please send an email copied to both Barry Derfel (bderfel@tstboces.org) and Brian VanGorder (bvangorder@tstboces.org) letting us know of your interest, and indicating your ability to participate in the required meetings.

33. K-8 Math Teachers Network [Session 4 of 4]

Program: School Improvement Services (COSER 505)

Audience: K-8 teachers

Dates: 3/15/2018

Meeting Times: March 15th, 8:30 am - 3:00 pm [1 hr. lunch on your own]

Location: A-14

John Hattie (2012) suggests that many students need different teaching strategies from those that they have been getting. We know that learner's readiness, abilities, and needs can be 'all over the map'. As teachers, we need to be able to identify and address each learner's individual needs, as well as have students take ownership of their own learning.

Visible Learning for Mathematics (Hattie, Fisher, & Frey, 2012) will deepen our understanding around how to use the right approach at the right time, in order to help more intentionally design classroom experiences that hit the surface, deep, and transfer phases of learning.
Additionally, Jo Boaler's Mathematical Mindsets (2016) will provide information, techniques, and tasks that aim to help all children believe in their mathematics potential.

Learning outcomes include:
+ Discover how to build successful relationships with students, critical to long-term student gains;
+ Understand learning intentions and success criteria and why they are critical to student growth;
+ Explore the three phases of learning -- surface, deep, and transfer;
+ Examine key approaches that work best at each phase of learning and apply these to lesson planning;
+ Implement strategies that support the development of a growth mindset.

*Ongoing, classroom embedded support and feedback will be provided*

We are in our third and final year of implementing a Learning Technology Grant.

We invite up to 4 teachers from the TST BOCES Campus and 4 teachers from the Groton Campus to join our current cohort of 4 teachers to join us in this work.

We use a fairly low-key process, known as Action Research, to help you identify a problem or challenge in your classroom related to collaboration or critical thinking that you would like to work on, to help you generate a technology integration strategy for addressing the problem/challenge, and to help you document the results as you implement this strategy over the course of the school year.

Participants who are selected will be paid for their Action Research planning time (6 sessions, each from 3:15 - 4:30, on the following Thursdays: January 18th, February 8th, March 8th, April 5th, April 26th, and May 17th.) Participants will also be paid for their co-planning time, if they are working together on a collaborative project across classrooms and/or campuses.

In addition, Technology Equipment can be purchased to support the integration strategies that participants generate.

We will be co-facilitating the Professional Development connected to this work, with Brian also providing classroom coaching for participants, as needed.

Please send an email copied to both Barry Derfel (bderfel@tstboces.org) and Brian VanGorder (bvangorder@tstboces.org) letting us know of your interest, and indicating your ability to participate in the required meetings. We will follow-up to confirm your participation and to communicate next steps.

Program: School Improvement Services (COSER 505)

Audience: This is only open to the people who have been accepted to participate in the grant.

Dates: 5/17/2018

Location: Seneca Room

We are in our third and final year of implementing a Learning Technology Grant. The goal of the grant is to increase student-to-student collaboration, to experiment with cross-campus collaboration, and to promote learning that fosters students' critical thinking skills. We invite up to 4 teachers from the TST BOCES Campus and 4 teachers from the Groton Campus to join our current cohort of 4 teachers to join us in this work.

We use a fairly low-key process, known as Action Research, to help you identify a problem or challenge in your classroom related to collaboration or critical thinking that you would like to work on, to help you generate a technology integration strategy for addressing the problem/challenge, and to help you document the results as you implement this strategy over the course of the school year.

Participants who are selected will be paid for their Action Research planning time (6 sessions, each from 3:15 - 4:30, on the following Thursdays: January 18th, February 8th, March 8th, April 5th, April 26th, and May 17th.) Participants will also be paid for their co-planning time, if they are working together on a collaborative project across classrooms and/or campuses.

In addition, Technology Equipment can be purchased to support the integration strategies that participants generate.

We will be co-facilitating the Professional Development connected to this work, with Brian also providing classroom coaching for participants, as needed.

Please send an email copied to both Barry Derfel (bderfel@tstboces.org) and Brian VanGorder (bvangorder@tstboces.org) letting us know of your interest, and indicating your ability to participate in the required meetings. We will follow-up to confirm your participation and to communicate next steps.
