As an educator of 21st Century children, we must constantly be bettering our own education concerning new age technology and the latest educational approaches. Developing a GAME plan is essential for all teachers. My GAME plan has kept me focused on specific and relevant goals throughout this class. I plan to achieve my goals throughout the rest of the year and develop new plans as often as I can. Part of being an educator is being a life-long learner as well. If we are going to foster that in our children, we must hold true to it as individuals.
Current GAME plan:
G: My goal is to use collaborative, technology enriched open-ended projects for at least 80% of my instructional time.
A: I have researched various projects and experiments for the 1st quarter and incorporated them into my lesson plans for the 9 weeks.
M: I plan to monitor these various projects and how often I use them in my classroom using my online lesson plans.
E: As these lessons take place, I will be evaluating and extending using SMART goals that track the progress of the students and mastery level of concepts.
G: Attending at least 2 weeks of online or in person classes per year
A: Seek out and sign up for training's throughout the year. In addition, complete the course work with Walden and maintain my technology blog.
M: I will keep track of my training's through Eduphoria's Workshop function.
E: I will evaluate each course on a 1-on-1 basis and discuss with my colleagues the information learned. I will incorporated the strategies into my classroom and determine the success of implementing them.
