Google Meet and Flipgrid Updates for Fall 2020.
Teacher Evaluations Feedback
Belinda Durling wrote a great email (excerpts below) in response to what I briefly shared in episode 158 about teacher evaluations.
I’d like to hear you talk more about why you think we should do away with teacher evaluations permanently. I am currently a 1st-grade teacher but I spent 9 years in administration before I got burned out and decided to go back to the classroom. So, I have the perspective of seeing and evaluating many different types of teachers. And truly most teachers are great. But, there are always bad ones- Teachers who do not treat students with respect and/or who are not effective at delivering content and engaging students. And even the good ones always have room to improve.
Parlay – I first spoke about Parlay in the 2019 House of #EdTech Smackdown and I would like to reshare it as Summer is a great time to explore a tool like this as you prepare for what school might look like in the Fall of 2020.
Parlay puts your students and their unique perspectives at the heart of learning, and gives you the data that you need to help them grow.
