In an ever-changing world, educators are tasked with regularly revising their practice to remain effective in the classroom. Although the rate of change is staggering - learning remains the constant. Our continued success can only be attributed to the Olentangy teaching staff who create and innovate within the classroom. Maximum learning occurs when we remain rooted in evidence-based best practice while pushing the limits of teaching and learning - exploring ideas that exist outside the lines. Please join us for two days of learning showcasing Olentangy teachers and guest speakers who will expose you to innovative and purposeful ideas.
This first episode of the Blended Learning with Catlin Tucker video series, provides an introduction to blended learning. Catlin and her students share why they transitioned to a blended model and the impact it has had in the classroom. She also provides an overview of the three models employed in her classroom - Station Rotation, Flipped Classroom, and Whole Group Rotation - and how she balances them.
The Google Drive Assignments App enables instructors to assign Google Docs, Spreadsheets, Slideshows, and Drawings from directly within the Schoology platform. Once assigned, students can make their own copies of the content to work on and submit, and the instructor can then provide feedback and grade the assignment, all without leaving Schoology.
Be exposed to innovative and purposeful ideas of other Olentangy teachers. Leverage the power of collaboration to promote action. Expand professional network and opportunities for collaboration across the district.
The best lesson is like a fine meal, and you are the Classroom Chef. Unfortunately, when teaching feels hard it seems impossible to get every item on your to-do list, the tendency is to rely upon fast food. The Classroom Chef shares secret recipes, ingredients, and tips for serving up lessons that engage students and help them "get" math, however, these strategies can be applied to all content areas. You can use these ideas and methods as-is, or better yet, tweak them and create your own enticing educational meals. The message the authors want to convey is that, with imagination and preparation, every teacher can be a Classroom Chef. Participants will receive a copy of the book “The Classroom Chef” by John Stevens & Matt Vaudrey to complete this study.

Blended learning involves leveraging the technology to afford each student a more personalized learning experience, including increased student control over the time, place, path, and/or pace of learning.
When you are reading and the author shows you a difference between what you know and what is happening in the text.
A difference between two or more things in the text, you should stop and ask yourself “What is the difference and why does it matter?”
To make the most of performance level descriptors, teams have to commit to having a collaborative conversation about reporting, student work, and the descriptors. This is why we have worked so diligently over the last several years to embed collaborative time into the work day: to allow grade level teams time to collaborate around student learning. Approaching collaboration using the following steps will facilitate a more effective process.
