The 21st Century Global Citizens program seeks to provide learners anywhere and everywhere with the kinds of skills - both technological and human - they will need to survive and thrive in the coming decades.  By weaving together assignments involving tech themes like communication, collaboration, content-creation and organization and human themes like questioning, relationships, resilience and rewards, and then applying them to global issues like those articulated in the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, the program aims to empower learners everywhere, whatever their situation.

Students deserve the opportunity to leverage technology as a powerful tool to aid in personal growth, productivity, and community participation...this doesn't just happen between 8-3. In my district, I worked to provide an access solution for our students. Through the process I have developed a 5-step plan for success when addressing digital access for students based on our experiences and research. This project will help others replicate the process in the districts and communities. As you start from this plan, be sure to adapt and share your success. Together we can wipe out the divide between students in need and digital access.

BadgeDocs are hyperlinked Google Docs created to support a workflow that empowers students to be in charge of their own learning. Essentially BadgeDocs are Hyperdocs with Badges attached. The BadgeDoc workflow includes 3 different Google Docs, each with a different purpose. The EVIDENCE DOC is a Google Doc assigned to students. It is a type of hyperdoc with links to lessons for the students to follow, space for students to put evidence of learning and a place for the badges that they earn. The CONTENT DOC is a multimedia rich Google Slides presentation. Text, images, video, GIFS etc are used to create interactive lessons that students can follow. URLS for these lessons are linked to the Evidence Doc. The Content Doc also includes a slide with evidence needed to earn the Badge. The TRACKING DOC is a Google Spreadsheet with the Flippity Badge Tracker Add On installed. The teacher assigns badges with an ‘x’, stars, or a percent complete. The Add On turns this information into a shareable web interface. GOOGLE CLASSROOM is used to manage documents and streamline feedback. First, the Evidence Doc is assigned via Classroom; then, students TURN IN the assignment when they are ready for a badge to be assigned; finally, the teacher uses the Grading Portal to easily access student evidence docs and give feedback.

It is estimated that every thirty seconds an amputation is performed on a person due to illness or accident in the world, there is also a huge number of people with limb lack due to congenital situations, in all cases only 5% have access to a functional prosthesis, and the percentage of those who can access a bionic prosthesis is much lower due to its high cost.  In a world where technology advances exponentially, and resources are easily accessible; "There should be no one who cannot access modern bionic rehabilitation for money"  Thanks to what I learned in the program of certified innovators, I decided to carry out the development of high-tech and easily accessible bionic prostheses, thus the Biogrip project was born, which aims to offer Modern Bionic Rehabilitation through donation programs. This project's mission is to make Bionic Technology non-restrictive and put it at the service of humanity.   BioGrip is a low-cost bionic arm, which can perform different types of grip thanks to its fingers with independent movements, non-skid palm and wrist with 180 ° adjustable rotation. The movements are controlled by electromyographic sensors with dry electrodes, which allow easy placement of the prosthesis and translate the electrical signals sent by the muscles to the processor which sends the instruction of precise movements to the fingers.  Various materials with easy access were used for the development of this prosthesis and the electronics were optimized to ensure that the cost of the bionic prosthesis is equal to or even less than that of a conventional prosthesis and thus encourage the donation program.  At the University, we impart creative thinking and 10X thinking courses to professors, students and administrative staff. We involve the community to contribute to the project with ideas, development, assembly, dissemination, obtaining resources and monitoring the candidates who will receive the prostheses.

The future is changing fast, but the school is stuck in industrial thinking whit a sit-down, listen, and learn approach. The logic is that the more knowledge the student can repeat, the better it is.  But we don't need students that can recreate already known knowledge. We need students that can take the knowledge and create new knowledge whit it. We need students that have strategies to work in teams and solve problems fast and effective.  But how do we do that whit an industrial curriculum that we are forced to enforce?      Whit DoThinkDesing, we help you to make a structured problem-based lesson whit our digital platform. Which guide you and your students safely through the process. No more bad teamwork, no more chaos, and whit the structure we help you as an administrator and teacher, that you will fulfill your curriculum. But at the same time, you will create creative problem-solvers for the future.

The EDUGuest Directory is a platform that schools can utilize to organize and track the various individuals from outside of the school (EDUGuests) who support teachers and students in and out of the classroom. Examples of supporting individuals include: guest speakers, artists in residence, activist in residence, story tellers, performers, alumni and external coaches. These individuals are usually identified due to a personal or professional relationship with a member of the school community. Often the individuals contributions are not known to the entire school staff and the connection to the school is often lost when the key member of the school community leaves the school.  The primary goal of the directory is to provide a place where information about these individuals can be recorded for the benefit of all staff and especially new staff. Information about area(s) of expertise, contact information, availability as well as reviews & comments from teachers will also be available for viewing.

EduRate was created by a teacher for teachers to assist with finding relevant, engaging professional development opportunities. At EduRate, teachers can search for presenters who cover topics they are interested in for their subject area and grade level as well as find presenters who run their sessions in ways they most like to learn. Armed with information about specific presenters, teachers can confidently seek out these presenters at PD events knowing the session won’t be a waste of time. Afterward, teachers can submit their own reviews of the presenters, adding their experience to their search results, helping other teachers the way they themselves were helped by their EduRate search.

To meet the needs of teachers and students in my school district, I repurposed a school bus and turned it into a mobile STEAM lab. Ernie's Mobile STEAM lab has a flat screen TV, wifi, Chromebooks, a drone, a 360 degree camera, Makerspace, coding kits for various age groups, Google AR/VR kits, Lego robots, podcasting, Breakout EDU kits, and a 3D printer. The bus will also provide professional learning for teachers in our district so that they are able to implement STEAM activities in all curricular areas. The project has been a joint effort within the school system with support coming from the instructional technology department, transportation, maintenance, and federal programs. The bus was transferred to the instructional technology department to begin the whole process. I named the bus after my mother, Ernestine Fagin, who was a longtime paraprofessional in the school system. She was instrumental in starting many programs to serve the children in her school and worked tirelessly until a cancer diagnosis in 1999. She was unable to return to work and lost her battle with cancer in 2001. Ernie’s Mobile STEAM Lab is a way to honor her legacy.

El objetivo principal del proyecto de innovación es crear un repositorio de recursos STEM con las buenas prácticas del profesorado de los 32 centros de las Fundaciones SAFA y LOYOLA, aunque también podría abrirse a cualquier otro centro que pudiera estar interesado, que quisiera colaborar, teniendo en cuenta que se pretenden promover metodologías activas que nos ayude a fomentar una mayor motivación de los alumnos en estas materias.  Paralelamente a lo manifestado en el párrafo anterior, también se nos plantean otros objetivos, algunos más a largo plazo, que son complementarios al objetivo principal:  Fomentar una relación más cercana entre profesores homónimos de diferentes centros en relación a las buenas prácticas realizadas en asignaturas de ciencias. Actualizar los contenidos y las competencias que pretendemos impartir, acercando el aprendizaje a la realidad diaria del entorno de nuestro alumnado. Aumentar el interés de los alumnos en estas materias de ciencias. Abrir el repositorio de buenas prácticas al mundo y diseñarlo autoabastecido por la propia comunidad de usuarios tanto a nivel nacional o internacional, con lo que podría conducir a una primera comunidad de recursos STEM. Concienciar a los participantes de la ventaja de compartir proyectos. Incentivar a los profesores que comparten su proyecto de alguna manera. Comenzar involucrando a los profesores de los centros SAFA-LOYOLA para luego en la medida de los posible expandir. Buscar una forma de dar a conocer el proyecto. Los usuarios podrán (sería interesante que fuera casi obligado) dejar feedbacks de los proyectos que usen con el fin de que estos nos sean estáticos y mejoren con el tiempo. Que los alumnos puedan evaluar el recurso.

We are obsolete. Kids are using tech and moving in digital worlds in ways we don’t understand. How do we keep current and understand digital language, motivations, and social lives of students so we can better shape their learning experiences positively?   We can start by having students teach educators how they live and move in the digital environment. Educators teach students how their brains interact within this environment. Together, we lessen the fear of teens using technology and find the middle ground that is balanced and healthy.  High school students have the opportunity to lead a cell phone free day at school and find ways to be leaders in their online environments. The impacts can be positive and far-reaching.   It is time to be bold and learn from and about each other.  Let students take the lead in teaching what they know and finding ways to have strong positive impacts - especially digitally.  Time to be open to what the students have to show and teach you.  Let go of some of your fear and find ways to work together for positive impact.   This project is a work in progress as students are currently helping to shape and build the final product(s).

Educational technology relies on infrastructure. As Maren Morris says “When the bones are good, the rest don’t matter.” The greatest and most intuitive learning management systems, the best instructional videos and sites, and the most accurate simulations are completely worthless without the ability to serve them to the students as needed. Even with rudimentary tools, a great educator can motivate, inspire, and enlighten students as long as the teacher can communicate with the student in a timely and reliable manner.   The missing piece is internet infrastructure. Urban areas are flush with this, but what about rural areas? Many lack broadband to the FCC's definition due to terrain issues, no economy-of-scale to bring in large telcos, and socioeconomic hardships to obtain what little access is possible. Deep east Texas, Appalachia, Arizona desert - they all have different combinations of these obstacles but the all have the same need: to provide the same educational opportunities to EVERY student regardless of location.   Digital equity is the goal and reliable broadband access is the way to it. Rural and remote locations also have opportunities to exploit and there's plenty of information on the Web to use for that purpose, but where to start?   Learn At Length aims to serve as the launchpad for districts, a hub of information and inspiration for how to bridge the gap. The reader will find plans to follow, companies to patronize, and contacts to explore in order to get remote learning off of the ground and onto the air!

Math Tech Team es un proyecto que emprendo cada ciclo escolar para apoyar a los alumnos que se les dificultan las matemáticas. En conjunto con los alumnos creamos recursos (especialmente videos) de ejercicios que representan cierto grado de dificultad. Esto para que los alumnos más tímidos o con más dificultades en el examen, puedan estudiarlos detenidamente o previo al examen.   El proyecto surgió debido a esta frase: “If you want to learn something, read about it If you want to understand something, write about it If you want to master something, teach it" así los alumnos aprenden mientras enseñan, y los alumnos con mayor dificultad se abren a aprender por su propia cuenta a partir de videos. No solamente tienen que ser videos, se crean recursos como poster's interactivos con los dibujos de google, exposiciones con slides, etc., el objetivo es que los alumnos aprendan a comunicar sus ideas y a justificar el resultado obtenido.

When teachers want to talk to parents of their students, they used to write a letter. On that letter, parents would fill in when they are available, bring back the letter to school. The teacher then checks if that works out. If it doesn't, another piece of paper travels back to the parents to pick a new date, and so on and so on.  That's why I created a Google Forms Add-on to automate this process. Parents just open the form, pick a timeslot an BAM... The add-on informs both teacher and parent that the appointment is made and that's it. The selected timeslot gets removed from the Google Form so no other parents can pick that same timeslot.

My Google Innovator project examines the questions: What is play for you? How does play help us be more productive and get unstuck? How might playful professional development help personally and professionally?  I'm exploring how 'we' might play more, or value play for play's sake more. If we did so, would it then trickle down into our classrooms, our homes, and our communities?  Play is different for each person. My project website, playfulPD.com, is a resource for facilitators or personal learning networks to find ideas and things they can integrate into their learning to make meetings and professional learning more playful and fun.   When have meetings we come together. We have a chance to experience 'collective joy' or group play. I want to find ways for people to share any ideas about time they've experienced collective joy. I have a stand alone blog (playful.blog) that will include stories of something someone has facilitated and share the memory, feelings, and happiness experienced through play that still lingers with them or related games or activities they recommend can then be linked to the website.  Time and time again my 'play' research led me 'the optimal state of flow' that is often achieved when a person is doing an activity that has a good amount of challenge, matched with their skill level, and they become autotelic. I say playfulPD is the beginning because: it is a beginning and a way to kickstart flow, also because ultimately I want to figure out how to encapsulate this research and advocate for a way to honor and awaken oneself to the way to use 'flow' to their advantage.  It was too complex and uniquely personal but I've compiled a lot of resources.  Stories will also be added to the playful.blog when they're ready.

O programa Simplifica nasceu do desejo de disponibilizar a gestores, educadores e pais uma sequência de conteúdos capazes de ajudar na organização do aprendizado remoto dos estudantes. São trilhas leves e divertidas que facilitam a aprendizagem a partir de experiências pensadas para motivar os estudos por meio de atividades que, apesar de estarem disponíveis no ambiente online, consideram tanto os estudantes com alta conexão à internet, como também aqueles com dificuldades de acesso. O programa foi criado por um grupo de professores de todo o país que se reuniu remotamente para desenvolver um conjunto de experiências de aprendizagem para estudantes do Ensino Fundamental, do 1º ao 9º ano. O resultado dessa iniciativa organizada pelo Amplifica em parceria com a Fundação Lemann e a Imaginable Futures é uma jornada de experiências de aprendizagem guiadas por experimentações, reflexões e desafios. O acesso às trilhas é realizado através do website: www.amplifica.me/simplifica.

There is a huge inequity right now in terms of how students are taught to leverage technology (especially social media) in positive ways and yet, we need students to lead and shine online, now more than ever before. 

The Student Digital Leadership Playbook is designed for students (13+) to use independently as a reach-ahead activity or guided by a teacher. There are links within the playbook to a few of the Google Applied Digital Skills activities. It was created by teacher-librarian and author, Jennifer Casa-Todd with content created by a few student leaders. 

The SDL playbook is organized around a LEAD framework:
L: Student digital leaders learn and share learning;
E: Student digital leaders are empathetic and engage in multiple perspectives when posting online;
A: Student digital leaders are aware (of their digital footprint, don't fall for fake, and give credit);
D: Student digital leaders are role models for others and make the world a better place, in person and online.

The SDL Playbook may help supplement some of the current digital citizenship lessons that tell kids what NOT to do, and instead help students with what they CAN do to shine online. 

My focus group consisted of 4 adults and 10 students. I received considerable feedback and used it to tweak the project. The feedback was immensely positive.  Students found the content to be relevant (91%) with a good variety of activities (88%). It took participants about 3 to 4 hours to complete in its entirety. I will continue to refine the project as more students complete the playbook.

6 Bulgarian Public schools kicked-off with 1:1 projects in April 2019. 1:1 on chromebooks is very new to Bulgarian K12 education and opens a lot of challenges and questions: How teachers are to be prepared to educate learners of the 21st century, now the current digital infrastructure and environment can host a 1:1 project and if a school can be fully 1:1 and on what cost. The Minister of Education visited few of the schools in April and October 2019 and the Innovative Schools program of the Ministry of Education already supports schools running on Google Workspace for Education and 1:1. Innovators’ role is to provide a strong layer of support and management and communication to each and every school team and visibility to the project itself. The project also developed a case study, available on https://classroomtech.bg

This project provides a blue print for schools to follow in creating an innovative learning space (MakerSpace, Fab Lab, STEAM Lab, etc.). Emphasis is placed on developing a structure that will provide the documentation teachers and school administrators will need to demonstrate that students are engaging in content directly related to content standards. The use of free Google tools (Docs, Sheets, Slides, Images, Forms, Drawings, Keep, Measure, YouTube, Science Journal, etc.) can all be used to document the process, test the product, the final result of the product students have created, and tell the story of their project.   Educators can use the Google tools to collect data prior to the development of the space, publish the disaggregated data to teachers and community members, and provide opportunities for community members to collaborate in the development and support of the innovative learning space.   Google tools can also be used to develop individual and school wide portfolios of the work going on in the space, so that the learning that takes place is visual and easily documented for school/district administrators and the community.

DUATIZA surge a partir del proyecto que presenté para el Certified Innovator Program de Google for Education para #ESP18. Pretendía en un principio profundizar solo en los recursos TAC y su accesibilidad, pero tras un año de trabajo y muchos aprendizajes, me he dado cuenta que a la "Mirada inclusiva" en los centros educativos aún le falta mucho camino por recorrer y que en la mayoría de los casos, aún estamos más preocupados por la accesibilidad física y cognitiva de los espacios que la de los materiales curriculares y su puesta en práctica en el aula. Por ese motivo este espacio será el inicio de un camino donde todos y todas podamos aportar recursos que mejoren nuestras aulas con la mirada del Diseño Universal para el Aprendizaje y los tres principios básicos de la inclusión: Presencia, participación y progreso. El reto original.... "Mi reto es poder detectar la capacidad cognitiva del alumnado con diversidad funcional, relacionada con parálisis cerebral y dificultades de comunicación, a través del uso de las TAC para que accedan igual que sus compañeros." El reto actual .... "Crear una comunidad de docentes interesados en el Diseño Universal para el Aprendizaje, compartir las BBPP y construir entre todos una base de datos de recursos TIC TAC adaptados al alumnado con diversidad funcional para conseguir una inclusión real y detectar la capacidad de aprendizaje"

Tudo começou no ano de 2016, com o projeto-piloto intitulado "e-du.c@c@o F1.51.C4: uma experiência a partir do Ensino Híbrido", na qual a intenção era adequar o processo de aprendizagem às características da sociedade contemporânea fazendo uso de tecnologias e de metodologias ativas. A partir da experiência construída com este projeto, que fora analisada em artigos publicados em periódicos nacionais e internacionais, o caminho natural a ser percorrido seria a sua multiplicação para outros professores. Com a oportunidade de participar da academia para a certificação Google Innovator, a ideia começou a tomar forma e se concretizou em um protótipo que, posteriormente, foi elaborado com maior detalhamento e implementado após aprovação e autorização da Secretaria da Educação do Estado de São Paulo (SEE/SP), por meio da sua Escola de Formação e Aperfeiçoamento dos Professores do Estado de São Paulo (EFAP), que foi publicada no Diário Oficial do Estado de São Paulo. O curso recebeu o título de "form-acao@continuada: experimentando a inovação" e foi estruturado em 4 módulos temáticos: Módulo I - Os aplicativos Google suas funcionalidades; Módulo II - O Ensino Híbrido e seus modelos; Módulo III - A Aprendizagem Baseada em Problemas e por Projetos e suas etapas; Módulo IV - O Movimento Maker e suas características. Cada módulo tem duração total de 8 semanas, com 5 horas de atividades semanais (3 horas presenciais e 2 horas de estudo a distância), totalizando 40 horas.

The G'Suite for Me! Experience allows teachers to work with peers in a team environment to hone their craft and enrich their classrooms. In this model of professional development, teachers are matched to form a "Jump Team" based on their self-selected learning topic.  The Jump Teams are flexible and designed to serve each teacher's training needs. They may be multi-level teams, even different content areas: their bond is the common desire to learn a specific topic.  The learning occurs in 3 to 6 week cycles of feedback - teachers apply the tool or skill in their classrooms and evaluate at the end of the cycle. If the teachers determine success -  celebrate! Reflection is a large part of the process of learning, and tools for reflection include Google Forms, Flipgrid, Google Docs, Keep, Google Drawing, and even written paper reflections. At this point, the teacher may determine to continue on with deeper learning, or abandon the topic and try something new. The communication with the small Jump Team is crucial so that the educator will not feel isolated.    At the mid-year point, teachers gather to share and celebrate learning (which may include spectacular failures!) This process allows teachers to learn from others in an environment of trust. Jump Teams can be reformed at any of the reflection points since they are created by common learning interests. The valuable hours spent trying the skill or tools in the classroom with be the basis of reflection. The end of year celebration will include a Gallery Walk so teachers can see how far they have come and get new ideas for their continued learning. The presentations at the Gallery Walk will be flexible examples of learning - creativity and fun is encouraged.  The G'Suite4Me! website includes ideas for possible study topics and also alternative assignments. For example, if a group of educators desire a certification (Google Certifications, Flipgrid Certifications, or other similar learning environments) they may form a Jump Team. There is an FAQ page for teachers to reference.   The beauty of this type of self-selected learning is the motivation factor. Teachers spend lots of time learning about things they are passionate about - they will now get professional development acknowledgement. It is my hope that districts will use this type of training to allow teachers agency, and give them district credit for the innovative learning they accomplish. They will share their joy of learning with their students, they can't help it.

* As a college we have moved our focus away from the student fixating on achieving a Grade 4 or higher.  * We have a focused intention on improving the individual and helping them improve their Personal Best rather than fixating on the 4 or higher ('Pass' grade). * In 18/19 we had increased student retention in Maths and english, a higher pass rate, and a better overall progress against the starting point for our learners * A settled teaching team in Maths with focused help from Learning Technologist Charlie James had a positive impact * Staff changes in the English Teaching team disrupted the excellent progress by this team who have shown real openness to adapting their approach  The new methods are having a positive impact on both staff and students and we are continuing to focus on increased happiness and 1-1 time being created for students in their English and maths lessons.

In support of the Curriculum Equity Initiative at Chicago Public Schools, I launched the Trailblazer Program. This series of three in person workshops backed with online resources served as the beta test of how to best help my teachers become digitally ready to utilize a fully digital curriculum. The goal is to move beyond mere substitution, which is the pitfall of the initial switch from a traditional paper-based curriculum, into something that is more active and transformative. The goal is to redefine the classroom and instruction.

Imaginem se fosse possível compartilharmos nossas experiências de ensino de música no Brasil com outros educadores, professores, regentes corais, e assim criarmos um repositório de grandes ideias musicais, liberadas para uso nas nossas escolas? E se fosse possível criamos novas formas de ensinar música usando a tecnologia? 

O projeto Legado Musical busca coletar e disponibilizar grandes ideias de educadores musicais inovadores, que encontraram na tecnologia uma forma de difundir o ensino de música no Brasil.

Descrição do Projeto ​
2020: Ano de comemoração dos 150 anos do Mackenzie
Desde 2019, planejávamos uma exposição de arte para comemorar essa data. O projeto estava bem avançado sobre o tema, a pesquisa, os materiais e o orçamento, faltava apenas começar o trabalho com os alunos e escolher o local onde seria feita a exposição. Esse era o ponto mais frágil do projeto, pensamos em vários lugares (Chácara Lane, Prédio 1, até o Shopping Higienópolis foi considerado uma possibilidade), mas o que não imaginávamos era que a pandemia nos levaria para outra realidade.
 
Em junho, quando já entendemos que a exposição seria inviável, veio a ideia de fazer o que os grandes museus do mundo inteiro estavam fazendo: exposições virtuais. Partindo dessa certeza, pedimos ajuda para a equipe de tecnologia. Queríamos manter o formato de 15 espaços, que representariam as 15 décadas. E cada década sendo contada por uma das 15 séries que compõem a Educação Básica, do maternal até a 3ª série do Ensino Médio.
Os professores de cada ano escolar contribuíram com a pesquisa de levantamento de dados que geraram o tema para ser desenvolvido em cada década. Aos professores de Arte e de Música ficou a responsabilidade de elaborar a produção plástica de cada turma de acordo com a pesquisa. A coordenação de Tecnologia Educacional sugeriu que a visita virtual seguisse o formato do Google Maps e/ou Google Earth, inclusive fazendo uso de um óculos cardboard de papelão, personalizado e desenvolvido no espaço Maker e STEAM do Mackenzie SP pela equipe de tecnologia, e as imagens dos trabalhos dos estudantes convertidas em 3D. Em cada estação, uma parte da história foi contada por meio de uma produção plástica, musical e textos informativos referentes ao período.
Levando em consideração que os alunos estavam em suas casas, sem material e sem espaço adequado para uma produção plástica mais elaborada, pensamos em produções viáveis dentro de um confinamento.
Os trabalhos foram produzidos e enviados on-line para as professoras de Arte, que encaminharam à equipe de tecnologia para a edição e montagem da exposição. Durante a edição, convidamos alunos que quisessem participar do processo de produção da exposição. A equipe de tecnologia educacional providenciou uma Webinar para que os alunos interessados aprendessem a trabalhar com o software Canvas. Alguns alunos participaram desse processo, o que se tornou um aprendizado significativo e relevante para eles.
A professora de música fez a seleção da trilha sonora com músicas já gravadas pelos alunos do coral infantil e juvenil do Mackenzie. Com a exposição agendada para início de novembro, as equipes se organizaram para realizar um drive-thru para a retirada do kit didático contendo: um par de lentes biconvexas para construção de um óculos de papelão (realidade virtual), o molde para realizar a montagem com a família e o guia de orientações para a produção do Google Cardboard.

Occutry Virtual Internships are sets of curriculum, developed in conjunction with companies, to provide internship opportunities to students who would be otherwise unable to access internships (location, age, transportation, etc). These virtual internships engaged students in the real world skills the companies deemed most important to expose kids to, and provide authentic opportunities for kids to practice test out jobs. Early exposure to careers has the potential to help students make wiser course work choices in order to maximize their high school experience. Occutry Virtual Internships are all developed alongside companies and professionals to ensure that each video illustrates the career pathway and job requirements, and each assignment reflects what the students hear in the video. The goal is to have the students learn from the real people doing these jobs and practice skills that aren't just for an assignment but also career exploration.

Particularmente en Villa Educativa se ha  hecho un trabajo arduo en el que los alumnos dan sus clases usando plataformas como Meet y classroom conectadas con otras aplicaciones que han permitido que sus clases continúen siendo atractivas para sus alumnos, establecuendo horarios para continuar con la rutina de trabajo que teníamos en el colegio. Por ello ha sido necesario capacitar a nuestros profesores en el uso de aplicaciones de uso remoto de buscando que los parendizajes esperados se logren conforme a los lineamientos de SEP y de paso se diviertan un poco en conjnto con sus alumnos en esta nueva normalidad a la que se han tenido que adaptar.

Irene Basson and Lindsay Wesner saw that many teachers in South Africa (and in many other countries) are disheartened and disconnected from community. They want to do education better but have no idea where to start or what is even possible. Existing PD in schools is commonly one-size-fits-all, ad hoc, lacking in vision and does not connect teachers with relatable examples, nor allow for teacher agency, differentiation or personalisation - the key ingredients for change are amiss!

In response to this, we proudly present PurpleZA: your one-stop PD solution - Putting people and purpose at the heart of teacher education.
 
We offer: 
Gamified tracking of personal professional development goals 
and the opportunity to earn micro-credentials and certifications;
connecting teachers with real stories of innovation from classrooms across South Africa;
providing a platform for strategic implementation of progressive pedagogies;  
taking the guesswork out of future-proofing your school.

PurpleZA provides teachers with: 
- high-quality, professional learning courses which are accessible anywhere, anytime
- quality online content which caters for various levels of skill and experience
- connections to real classrooms and teachers through stories of innovation from classrooms across South Africa
- local success stories of exemplary, innovative  classroom practice featuring localised subject content and implementation examples
- gamified tracking of personal professional development goals and the opportunity to earn micro-credentials and certifications

PurpleZA provides school leaders with: 
- a strategic and cohesive plan for in-service teacher training
- an implementable PD platform to drive sustainable transformation in schools
- practical PD through which is scalable, customisable and pervasive
- teacher development data for monitoring and informing future strategic planning

TeachersPD was created to help teachers apply pedagogical practices that help to foster 21st century skills and transform students into lifelong learners. The site has over 60 hours of online professional development which all involve application, reflection and sharing. The site utilises a membership system to help foster collaboration and collegiality between teachers.  TeachersPD also provides face-to-face workshops as this is still the method most asked for by teachers, but each workshop comes with further support provided through online forums and our Facebook group "TeachersPD". TeachersPD has also released a podcast called "Effective Teaching" focusing on teaching strategies that help create lifelong learners in your classroom. The episodes are short to ensure they do not take much time but still provide you with tips for your classroom.

The Gamification Guide is here! Gamification is the use of game-mechanics and elements in non-game contexts. For the last six years, I’ve used gamification to turn my classroom into a video game to help motivate, engage, and empower my students. I’ve done hundreds of presentations on my unique style of gamification and have worked with dozens of teachers to turn their classroom into a video game. One of the things I’m always told is that an in-depth guide would be useful, so I wrote one for the first stage of my three stage system!

From one education leader who shares the feelings of many, "I spend too much time paper pushing and not enough time with my people and students in order to make sustainable change." Leaders of EDU are hitting an all-time high of frustration and burnout. Many are feeling overwhelmed, unsupported, and unable to "do it all". New tools and practices are emerging at lightening speeds with a price that exceeds most public education budgets. Though many of our teachers are capitalizing on the affordable, creative and collaborative power of Google Workspace for Education, our district leaders often are not. It's time leaders do too. The Incremental Drip is a training platform/blog that is specifically written with the busy education leader in mind. Effective leaders connect with their communities and capitalize on their time. Google Workspace for Education provides a perfect, budget-friendly, set of tools to do just that. The Incremental Drip will offer courses centered around leadership practices as well as a blog discussing quick tips and latest trends for leaders. Each course will be made up of bite-sized lessons that will be a just right fit for the busy leaders schedule. One day when all grown up, The Incremental Drip will have a podcast as well as guest course and blog writers; all authors being leaders supporting leaders growing an even greater community of support.

Over the last couple of years, we have greatly increased our number of Google Certfied teachers, also having invested in a small fleet of 120 Chromebooks. We are now ready to take flight with real pedagogical innovation: Learning English through PBL.   PBL is the pedagogical practice that naturally pulls in all other "innovations", namely EdTech, MakerEd, SEL, teacher leadership and collaboration, life-long learning, and active methodologies.

This is a Teachers' Guide to Getting More from Google Sites.  Google Sites are very easy to use and can quickly produce effective and purposeful websites with a clean functional appearance.  However, the downside of using them to create teaching and learning resources is that sites could look a bit ‘samey’.  Additionally, the inclusion of interactive elements on the pages could make the sites more engaging for learners.  My guide aims to provide a quick and easy guide/reference for teachers to take their Google Sites to the next level and thereby create better learning resources.  As well as clear descriptions, examples and demonstration YouTube videos, I have created interactive pages where teachers can experiment with their code and test the output before adding to their Google Site.
