School Transformation/Improvement: Lesson 129

Our School Improvement Specialists are always searching for ways to impove the personalized professional development we provide to schools. Pamela Toburen (we call her PJ) shared her most recent "lightbulb" experience with us, and once we heard it we knew we had to share it with you, too!

From PJ, "I knew this gal had a smart phone so I asked her to take a picture of the kid's writing and e-mail it to herself. She could do that very easily. Once it was e-mailed to herself, all she had to do was open the attachment and BINGO, the document was projected on her whiteboard. The advantage of projecting it on the whiteboard is that you can write on the document with a dry erase marker."

One of her students asked, "Will you do that to mine?" She said "It's so messy, I can hardly read it," to which he promptly replied, "I'll write it neater!"

So, we've got two things going here: 1) the opportunity to display student work and 2) motivation to do the work well. And that's to say nothing of the financial benefit of not having to buy a document camera!

The teacher was really jazzed. I did tell her that if she uses this procedure, she MUST be able to do it without compromising the integrity of "time on task." It has to be done so quickly that it doesn't prevent them from completing a lesson.
