This is an introduction to online learning spaces for instructional coaches in the SJSD. We'll use Edmodo to model key components of an online learning space: Discussions, Work flow, and Quizzes. Embedded within the professional development will be a spiral to look at a past technology skills (using Public Domain and Creative Commons Images) as well as an SJSD learning focus--annotating text for deeper comprehension. In addition, we'll expand our technology skills by creating a comic strip--iPad via Comic Life and Laptop via ToonDoo. To make this relevant learning, our "Assignment" within Edmodo involves supporting New Teachers.

  • Holding Conversations... Holding conversations is a key component of any good online learning space.
  • Reading Comments by Kathy Cassidy Discuss, What makes a good comment? It takes practice.
  • Commenting Scoring Guide Look back at your comments. How would you score yourself? What improvements, if any, are needed? Model how we can go make and edit comments on Edmodo. Then, allow them to do so. Point out: Creators of a group (and co-teachers) can edit all comments. Students can edit their own. Everyone can see a comment to the group that is in the group.

  • Edmodo as a work flow option... Another key component of an online learning space is a work flow option. I created an assignment for teachers to use during the session to model a work flow process. (Copied below) PDF created from this web article: http://blogs.edweek.org/teachers/ coaching_teachers/2013/09/tips_for_coaching_new_teachers.html This assignment is two-fold. 1. Let's learn how we can support our new teachers! Read the article that is attached. This PDF can be annotated on the iPad (Notability) and on the MacBook (Preview). Don't worry, we will show you how! 2.Next, summarize the key points from the article by creating a comic strip. Each panel should highlight a skill or tip from the article on what we can do for new teachers. iPad (Comic Life) or MacBook (ToonDoo). Hint: Don't forget Compfight and Pixabay for finding great images. When your comic strip is created, we will turn it in here. Don't worry, we'll walk through the process together!
