Great advice from Cale Birk -
As busy as we are, I believe that we need to ensure that we do three things when it comes to getting and utilizing feedback:
We need to ensure that after any meeting, day, or event that we feel is important, we set aside a block of time to reflect on the process.
We need to ensure that we are hungry for authentic feedback from what IDEO calls "extremes and mainstreams", people who we might not think to ask for feedback along with those that seem obvious.
We need to take this feedback, and apply it by making a prototype that we can test out with actual users (even using something like the High Tech High Tuning Protocol) with time built in prior to our next use so we can make any necessary adjustments.
The Connecting Creativity series is a learning quest designed with concept and content convergence in mind, supported by meaningful technology integration. Each Connecting Creativity concept is designed so teachers can repurpose the idea to meet the needs of their students and the needs of their curriculum goals.
From Ken Halla - As I begin a new school year - my 25th, (my student have their first day on Tuesday) I always like to reflect on what setup (beyond the physical part) is best for my students.
Good resource to share with new teachers
