In the fall of 2012, Byron Public Schools (BPS), a small district of approximately 1850 students, incorporated its own variation of the flipped professional development coaching model to support the the technology integration needs of every Pk-12 educator. The technology tsunami was fastly approaching BPS! Online learning, Google Apps, iPads, Web2.0, BYOD had already made its way into the district, changing many of our classroom’s teaching and learning strategies. While we were fortunate to have “Pockets of Wow” (Doug Johnson) educators, the technology skills gap between the early innovators and late adopters was increasing at a rather fast pace. Traditional “sit and get” PD was not conducive to the amount of change technology had on teaching and learning. Technology PD could no longer be supported by 1 or 2 people. We needed to do something, it needed to impact every educator, and we needed to do it now.
The Byron digital learning network was formed and 7 new teacher leaders positions, called digital learning coaches (DLCs), were created. The district worked with the DLCs to develop a Flipped PD model that would support digital pedagogy and classroom innovation for ALL PK-12 teachers. This session will share key components of the plan as well as the triumphs (BIG GAINS) and tribulations of the district’s Flipped PD journey.
