"T - 3": Zooming in and Zooming Out of Teacher Meetings

Students arrive in three working days.



The only thing I want to do is work in my classroom. But there are meetings. Obligatory attendance. Would admin know if I skipped?



I admit these feelings as a trained administrator, knowing the importance of the pre-service meetings. If I were to write objectives for the meetings we have had, they would be as follows:



  • Build a positive school-wide and divisional culture

Technology that augments the use of technology by educators...

I recently had a discussion with a friend about the relative merits and demerits of technology, and before you jump in to claim that the pros outweigh the cons, let me iterate that the topic under debate was the value of (or lack of it) technology for those who are either scared to use technology or have no clue about it.
