Google Summit Ottawa 2014
Session One: Inquiry
In my first session on Inquiry, I challenged my participants to post their “I wonder” questions. I was thrilled that so many people shared by adding their comments directly into the presentation.
In addition, I shared a Q-Matrix that many teachers in TDSB have been using as a strategy for developing questions with students. Because Ottawa was a bilingual summit, @celinerc took the English Q-Matrix I shared and created a French Q-Matrix for participants to use.
One of the last tweets I read was @msaudraabro‘s reflection that she was ready to #TryOneThing – it’s always so exciting to read about a strategy that was used with students – I love learning too!
Session Two: Assessment
In this session I challenged participants to provide feedback for me as a presenter. I asked them to share their feedback in this Google Doc and then I shared some of the feedback participants provided for me. This was a great learning experience for me, and I’m really pleased with this exercise. In addition, an unexpected result of this exercise, was Diana Maliszewski’s Blog post where she shared her reaction to this tweet.
