This week, Maria was sick and the chat room was not hopping. I guess everyone is busy getting ready for the holidays. But Sheila and Lisa did have one guest, who we were thrilled to call into our skype call to have her join the chat. Amanda Marrinan took time away from her beach vacation to talk with us about how technology is working in the classrooms. Sheila, Amanda, and Lisa shared many very exciting for us, and getting to be commonplace for the kids, activities that occur daily in our classrooms. Enjoy the conversation.
After a bit of a rocky start due to issues with LiveStream, today's Conversation was about how teachers should be evaluated. What is
the ideal teacher evaluation method? What should be done? How would you
like to be evaluated? Many different points of view were shared in the chat room and by Lisa, Maria and Sheila. Listen and find out what everyone was talking about.
