Announcements & Review

1. Upcoming events:

  • The next workshop date is scheduled for May.
  • #LuthEd Twitter chats take place on Monday evenings from 8:00-9:00CST throughout the school year.

2. Let’s take this time to reflect on last month’s TEC21 Challenges and share experiences. What happened? Were you successful? Did you come across any challenges?

3. “Celebration Day” is coming up! What does the format of the day look like and what can you do to prepare?

Helpful tips:

  • Think of the day as a mini-conference and each of you will be the presenters.
  • 10-15 minutes show something(s) you’ve accomplished this year – what you did, how you did it and why you did it.
  • Click on the SHARED DOCUMENTS. Locate your center’s doc and add your name, a description of what you’re sharing and provide your links. Have samples of student projects hosted on the web? Share those links, too! Here’s an example of what the line-up looked like at one of the workshop centers a couple years ago – SAMPLE.
  • Consider what device or devices you will use.
  • Use the outline below with its questions and strategies to prepare for the day.
