OVERVIEW

Partnership for 21st Century Skills, http://www.p21.org/
This is the site that has about all of the topics we are focusing on in evening training sessions. Take time to look around this site. Especially take a look at the Framework for 21st Century Learning and resources for Collaboration. Each iCougar topic will explore this site.
  • Demonstrate ability to work effectively and respectfully with diverse teams.
  • Exercise flexibility and willingness to be helpful in making necessary compromises to accomplish a common goal.
  • Assume shared responsibility for collaborative work, and value the individual contributions made by each team member.

WORK EFFECTIVELY & RESPECTFULLY WITH DIVERSE TEAMS

The ability to work together, to collaborate, doesn't happen magically. Teambuilding, Classbuilding, and Staffbuilding activities help students get acquainted and more comfortable working together. This comfort among students (& teachers) can be built while learning curriculum or while learning about the iPod Touch/iPad!

What flexibility and/or compromises have you had to endure this year as the weeks pass in the iCougar program as we work through our school wide (common goal) of technology integration? What goal can you make for your teaching and your student's learning - a reachable goal within this month?
