Connected Educator Week Activities

Time sensitive reminders about two activities that we have going on this week:

(both of these activities qualify for the new professional development BADGE system–see details below)

1. Tonight is the #TXL chat on Twitter at 8:00 CST. Our own Michelle Cooper, MS Media Specialist is one of the moderators for tonight’s chat, and Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach is the featured guest. Remember to use the hashtag #TXL Chat to join the conversation.

2. This is the final call for staff to sign up for the book study on, ‘Classroom Habitudes,’ by Angela Maiers. Please click on the link below by tomorrow, Wednesday, October 14th to sign up and participate in this study. We will order books Friday, October 16th, and begin the study the last week of October.

Book study announcements and updates will be made through Edmodo. And we will participate in 3 to 5 Twitter chats during this study, with Angela Maiers joining us along the way.
The district is in the process of rolling out a new professional development system that will enable our teachers to earn ‘Badges’ based on training events and hours earned. Badges will accumulate to earn credit in place of summer training days. More information will be coming soon!
