Welcome to SHS/SFA Tech Tuesdays 2015-2016

This entry is part 1 of 20 in the series Tech Tuesday 1516

What is “Tech Tuesday”?  For those of you new to or unfamiliar with Spartanburg High School and Spartanburg Freshman Academy, Tech Tuesday is one of the scheduled types of professional development I offer.  I set topics for every Tuesday, and the sessions are offered all periods, 1-7 in room 101D of the Media Center.  Come by during your planning periods.

New Year, New Strands, New Room!  You won’t find many more tool training / functionality sessions now that we are in the third year, both within our building and during District-facilitated PD.  I wanted to point out this year that I am going to be offering rotating strands once a month during Tech Tuesdays: Flipped Learning, Project-Based Learning (PBL), Content Areas and Bring Your Own Topic (BYOT).  Look for the semester schedule as an attached PDF.  I’m also excited to be using 101D, which has been converted into a collaborative learning room…come check out our floor-to-cieling idea walls!

*PD360 Registration Required!*  You can register when you arrive, but I must log these in PD360 this year in addition to having physical sign-in sheets.  Your help with this is very appreciated!  August has been entered, and the rest of the semester will be available.  Find it by navigating to the respective month’s catalog (i.e. Resources > Learning Targets > Catalogs > SHS Aug ’15 PD).  Tech Tuesday offerings are labeled with TT.  (They are labeled to run all day, but remember sessions only run during planning periods.)

A commitment to ICYMI  Last year, I began to follow-up Tech Tuesday sessions with ICYMI blog posts, and I hope to do that again this year.  These posts will share resources referenced and notes about major ideas…even a screencast once in a while!
