As coaches and educators we want to model instructional technology use to support curriculum and instruction while sharing what we are learning and teaching in our classrooms. Recently at the Friday Institute’s Summer Boot Camp, the Professional Leading and Learning team came up with the idea of modeling the current Augmented Reality trend with ways to further build the capacity of the hundred K-12 educators were were supporting in our one day, intense and content filled training -- it is called Boot Camp, after all.
We invited educators from across the local education agencies we support to create a two minute video highlighting a tool, resource or instructional strategy they used in their own classrooms. Their collective talent and expertise was then shared as professional development - and in two minutes captured the depth and breadth of their pedagogical, content and technology knowledge.
What is Two Minute PD?
Give PD back to educators. The collective talent and expertise you can share is the best PD there is. Each two minute PD reveals the depth and breadth of that reservoir of talent YOU CHOOSE, giving educators an opportunity to share and learn efficiently and often.
What makes a good Two Minute PD?
Here are the key components of a strong Two Minute PD. Everything else is up to you.
And that’s it! You can be as simple (talking head) or as complicated (animation, music, etc.) as you would like — be as creative as you want!
