In this episode of “Ask the Tech Coach,” Jeff and Susan welcome guest co-hosts, Sarah Kiefer and Laura Counts to share how they have formed a fantastic working relatsionship in their school building that has led to outstanding student achievement.
Laura is a 4th gr teacher and showed her students a photo of kids sitting around a radio learning back in the early days of polio. This sparked an unplanned activity! Laura asked Sarah to come in and go over pros/cons of various tech tools and then supported a couple of students who chose to do a newscast & needed to use a new program in order to accomplish what they set out to. A very successful co-teaching tech plan.
I've been sharing this amazing picture on Zoom class visits — kids remote learning during a polio outbreak in the 1940s. Schools shut and teachers read lessons on the RADIO. We're facing such challenges today, but as I tell kids, we've faced them in the past and gotten through. pic.twitter.com/IOV6MNPE6a
