February 21th, 2017
Time was spent in small groups developing a SMART Goal for the four areas that we are focusing on this year.
Curriculum & Programs:
NASC will provide an organized space online to share curriculum resources.
NASC will offer multiple professional development opportunities for participating school districts each school year.
By the end of the 2016-2017 school year the NASC committee will develop and administer a common technology evaluation tool to assess the integration of technology at our schools.
Goal: How can we (NASC) facilitate PLCs across all districts
S: Facilitate collaboration amongst teachers across districts
M: Keep track of meeting dates
A: Provide resources - some/most schools are already doing something
R: More collaboration creates stronger teachers = outcomes
T: One school year
A online book club was discussed and members were encouraged to share information. The book is titled "The Inovators Mindset" by George Couros. Information on this can be found here: http://immooc.org/
