Sense of a Goose

Posted by jstritt on July 19th, 2010

Julie Everett, former ESU 10 professional development team member, shared about the Sense of a Goose team building story.   Distance education teachers is a unique special group of educators that might be able to benefit from this team approach of sharing about our common practice of video conferencing.

I am taking over the lead goose role to start the year but throughout the upcoming months I will be looking to others to assist in our upcoming 2010-11 journey.

In addition to having someone share about a tip, trick, or practice they use in their classroom, I will also be looking to everyone else – those in the back of the V – to put into practice suggestions and then honk (comment) on the results through this blog.

What suggestions might you have for this 2010-11 journey?

Interactive Video Conferencing

Tonia Carriger from the Center of Learning and Collaboration (CILC) met via video conferencing with 30 ESU 10 staff trainers, engineers, and administrators on January 8.  Ms. Carriger shared how interactive videoconferencing (IVC) allows you to improve communication, collaboration, & learning – all while saving valuable time and money.

  • identifying effective IVC protocols and best practices.
  • gaining experience using IVC as a presentation delivery model.
  • aligning IVC best practices and current curricula.
  • building confidence and motivation to use IVC.
  • integrating IVC into current curricula.
  • learning effective uses of videoconferencing.
  • learning to increase engagement and motivation through the use of IVC.
  • understanding and apply tips for successful videoconferencing.
  • transitioning on-site or face-to-face presentations to videoconferencing.

Ms. Carriger will conduct a second followup video conference with ESU 10 staff in February.
