2. FACILITATOR ORIENTATION WEBINAR

Monday, June 20th
4:00 - 5:30PM
Here is the Elluminate Recording of the Webinar if you missed it!

In harvesting the chat afterwards there were some tips that came up:
Equipment
Peter and Brenda will put together a chart here with equipment needs - we are trying to bring along our own projects and speakers if possible. Headsets are helpful for some centres.

Tips for Centres
  • it's not like a regular workshop - some may come and go - some may stay - may return a few times to you
  • connect with their questions
  • welcome activity, challenge cards, as them what they'd like to learn
  • you may use your wiki page as a way to direct people for an overview or a few activities
  • people vote with their feet - nothing personal if they leave they just need something else at that time
  • model how we've learned this stuff - promoting self-directed learning and empowering teachers to learn beyond the day
  • share some classroom connections and exemplars
  • having some slides cycling if you don't need the projector might help catch people up if they come mid stream
