Professional Development Fridays: T.O.E.S

T.O.E.S

T.O.E.S. provides a safe and supportive environment to work alongside peers and to reflect on how emerging technologies and engagement strategies may impact your teaching and work environment.

All sessions will be held on a Friday from 12:20 to 1:20 (during free hour).
 

8/26 Planbook.com

Planbook is an automated teacher lesson planner that makes managing your plans easier, faster, and more functional than a physical paper/pencil planbook.  It also includes a student view that can be shared through Blackboard.  Find out more at Planbook.com.

We will also discuss the purpose for planning ahead, and how to develop an organization system that interacts with your day-by-day practices.

9/23 OneNote

OneNote is the best Microsoft Office program you’re probably not using.  It is an awesome, powerful note-taking tool that really looks like a digital notebook.  You can embed just about anything into the pages.  It has an incredible search capability and integrates great with Outlook and other Office programs.  There is a share and a collaborate feature and it is available on multiple platforms.  It is a great tool to organize the excess amount of information we deal with daily.

Most of this will be a hands on session so bring your laptop or use one of the YOGA ThinkPads available in the CPE.  We will learn some of the main features of OneNote and we will discuss the many ways you could integrate it into your professional life.  One great use is for collaborating with a committee/ group using a shared notebook to have virtual meetings or just to keep your group organized.
