71-Inspiring AWESOME in every educator through personalized PD

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.

82-Flipping for Self-Paced Differentiation in a Mixed-Ability Classroom
Our middle school classes are all inclusive; there’s no tracking that occurs. The result is a class that can move too slow for some and too fast for others. Therefore, we developed our own method of flipping to address this issue. This technique works best with a classroom that has access to computers or mobile devices, however it’s also possible without technology. We didn’t do it every day, we started small, and not all of our students have access to the internet at home, yet there were clear benefits for both students and the teacher. We’ll discuss how we flip and give examples from our class, as well as other subjects from our building that are doing similar work. We’ll show how resources from our regular lesson planning sessions allowed us to better meet the needs of all students and facilitate self-paced classroom activities for effective individual and small group learning.
