Burke County Global Educator Cohort...Round two!!

In the coming weeks the BCPS Digital Teaching and Learning team will open the application window for the 2nd annual BCGEC.  We have MacBooks to issue to any middle or high school teachers that get accepted.  We are also extending an open invitation to elementary teachers to apply with us as well.  

The first BCGEC was great a great experience for the DTL team as well as the cohort members.  Our department worked diligently to provide professional development opportunities that were engaging, insightful, fun, and productive. We used Canvas to facilitate our course, and shared tools and resources like:

  • Goosechase
  • What's a PLN
  • Copyright Policy
  • Twitter
  • GAFE (Google Apps for Education)
  • Canvas & Google Classroom
  • Skype & Google Hangouts
  • Code.org
  • BreakoutEDU
  • Edcamp
All members also attended our DTLC last fall, and will attend/present at the 2016 DTLC.

We're looking forward to our next cohort group, and while we are growing our family, we plan to have both cohort groups working together in the coming year.  We want the cohort to be what the member want and need, but we have some ideas in mind.  We also have a great opportunity for one of sessions to be our very own #EdcampFoothills on September 10th, 2016 at Heritage Middle School.  

Check out the video, think about it, and we hope to see your application soon!

Summer Reading and Google Sites

Summer time means summer reading!  I love seeing what other people are reading, sharing what I've read, and getting book recommendations...
