Today we had our September sessions of our eMINTS professional development.
In Session 103, we reflected on what our own personal teaching beliefs were, explored constructivism, and made connections between the eMINTS Instructional Model and the philosophy of constructivism.
After lunch - in session 102 - we explored the components of effective family communication and worked to create family communication folders for their classes.
Finally, the the teachers were given some time to work with and customize the various tech tools we reviewed and tailor them to their own classrooms.
The most popular tech tools were Google Classrooms and using Google Forms to gather feedback and formative assessment data.
Below are some pictures of our teachers completing a constructivist activity called "Save Fred!"
