Speak Up Canada<br />About Speak Up 2010<br /> <br />Online surveys will be open from October 18 through to December 17, 2010. <br /> <br />All Alberta schools and jurisdictions have been pre-registered. <br />You simply are invited to take the survey. <br /> <br />Surveys are available this year for K-12 students, teachers, parents, school and district administrators and college students enrolled in teacher preparation programs. <br />Every K-12 school and district is eligible to participate in Speak Up. <br />There is no fee to participate, or limit on the number of respondents. All information is 100% confidential. The surveys take less than 20 minutes to complete. <br /> <br />Every participating school and district receives a free online reportin February 2011. <br /> <br />Survey question topics include learning and teaching with technology, 21st century skills, science/math instruction, career exploration, emerging technologies (such as Web 2.0, mobile devices, games, online learning and digital content), professional development, school-to-home communications, digital citizenship and investment recommendations for 21st century schools. <br /> <br />Use Speak Up data to inform your local plans and learn about the ideas of your students and their parents. <br />

  15. 15. Homework Pages<br />I have brought this issue to the computer techs and to Anna since September. I understand that there are number of priorities that have taking up time, however, I really feel that this now needs to be addressed, so I am writing to you.<br /> <br />Over the last two school years, I utilized our school web-page for a homework page for my class. This allowed me to update information on a daily basis, link assignments and have an ongoing calendar that parents and students can view. My students and parents utilized this extensively. I would really like to have access to this tool again. <br /> <br /> <br />I have heard the arguments that Power School can do the same, however, I don’t feel that is the case. Here are a few points:<br /> <br />·         Having to log-in is a barrier to students checking the site. <br />·         Power School does not easily allow me to place calendars/weekly agenda updates.<br />·         Although I can link sites/assignments in Power School, this is more easily done in the Word edit format from the web-page.<br />·         Parents can quickly access the web-page, whereas Power School requires  them to log-in each time<br /> <br />I truly feel that this is the best way for students and parents to check on assignments and upcoming events no matter where they are in the world. I would appreciate having access to this tool again. Please let me know what I can do to make this happen.<br /> <br />Regards,<br /> <br />S.R.<br />

  18. 18. Student Teaching Cohort<br />Funding will be allocated to support 25 students and mentor teachers to participate. <br />Teacher release time – $600 per teacher to cover the cost to attend 4 half day cohort meetings<br />Meeting costs- $50 per teacher<br />Administration of program costs $800 – ($200 per teacher)<br />Total for one cohort of 4 teachers $3400<br />Total for two cohorts of 4 teachers $6800<br />Financial assistance - up to $2000/per teacher<br />5 minute Video<br />
  19. 19. Student Teaching Cohort<br />Be willing to deliver a presentation to post secondary institutions to speak to the advantages of participating in a rural practicum. Sell the value proposition for working in a rural board. <br />Support student teachers by assisting them to find accommodation or boarding. (Advertise and promote the need through meetings, school websites, staff email or newsletters.<br />Hold a welcome orientation meeting for the student teachers.<br />Offer to interview student teachers. <br />Agree to release partner teachers for four half day meetings.<br />Select a social mentor for each cohort of practicum students – The social mentor would help the new teacher to feel comfortable in the community and will coordinate a few activities for the enjoyment of the students. <br />Participate in a post program survey (project lead and partner teachers)<br />
