In order to accomplish this game plan to inspire creativity I have embarked on several iniatives.
The creation of a website is on the plan for this week. However we have encountered some challenges. One in particular is to research and collation of information to be placed on the website. So I have incorporated to help of a few other teachers to assist me with this project. This will inturn give them a bit of insight into the plans to reach students using technological tools.
Another the difficuties that we have encounted was an appropiate design for the website, even though there are so many free website information some of them are very limited, but after communicating with few experts in the field we decided to use http://www.yola.com/, which is a free website hosting site but it also helps you along the way with designing and their are many other tools you can add to make it look great.
We have also created the blog for communication and feedback so that when the website is done, we will place a link on the front page so that students can navigate there to express themselves.
Another step that has taken in the line of parent involvement is to ask to President of the PTA (Parents and Teachers Associations) about having a forum to ecourage parents to tbe digitally lieterate. We both agree that an ICT workshop just before school opens will be ideal.
Lastly my game plan involves a personal goal, to be more organized in the classroom, so this week I have started preparing for lessons for the start of the school year
These are the things that I have accomplish so far in my game plan.
