March 2022 Agenda— Muntinlupa, Philippines
Let’s take some time to reflect on last month’s TEC21 Challenges and share experiences. Share a success, a challenge you experienced or a lesson learned.
1. The next workshop date is scheduled for Saturday, April 23, 2022.
2. This summer, we will be preparing our TEC21 website for “Season 14”, so we encourage you to bookmark the “Season 13” workshop agendas now so you have access to them in the future. Here’s the link – https://tec21connect.com/2021-2022-workshop-agendas/ Note: When we perform quarterly updates on our website’s theme, webpages and various plug-ins, we do not include all of the previous years’ agendas (webpages) in the process. This means that over time past agendas may start to look a little wonky, but the links and resources will still be accessible for you 🙂
3. We are forming our next cohorts for Season 14! Word of mouth and personal testimonies can go a long way helping us support more teachers. Can you please encourage teachers you know to register for a cohort near them? We would GREATLY appreciate it! #TEC21lcms #LutheranSchoolsThrive #LuthEd
4. “Celebration Day” is next month and it is a time to celebrate each other’s successes! This will be an opportunity for you to share what you have learned and how you have grown as an educator through the processes of sharing best practices with one another, inquiry, and implementation through trial and error. What does the format of the day look like and what can you do to prepare?
- Think of the day as a mini-conference and each of you will be the presenters (Remember that you are sharing with friends, so don’t sweat this and have fun with it!)
- Spend approximately 10 minutes showing some things you’ve accomplished this year–what you did, how you did it, and why you did it–and/or some things you are planning to do for next year.
- Select this SHARED FOLDER. Add your first & last name, description & links to your respective center’s collaborative Google Doc in preparation for “Celebration Day”. Do you have samples of student projects hosted on the web? Share those links, too! Here’s an example of a variety of different ways past TEC21 Teachers presented their learning – SAMPLE.
- You might also want to use the Celebration Day guide to help to organize your thoughts. To download a copy to print, click HERE.
We look forward in Workshop #6 to further discover ways to inspire student learning in technology enriched classrooms.
1. Explore and discover a variety of digital tools and learning activities to use multimedia learning ….
2. Apply the Principles of Multimedia Learning through creating presentations using Google Slides, Canva, Microsoft PowerPoint, etc.
3. Be a resource to another colleague by sharing with them a digital tool, a resource, a learning activity, or an assessment strategy you learned about at today’s workshop.

1. The Coherence Principle
Humans learn best when extraneous, distracting material is not included.
2. The Signaling Principle
Humans learn best when they are shown exactly what to pay attention to on the screen.
3. The Redundancy Principle
Humans learn best with narration and graphics, as opposed to narration, graphics, and text.
4. The Spatial Contiguity Principle
Humans learn best when relevant text and visuals are physically close together.
5. The Temporal Contiguity Principle
Humans learn best when corresponding words and visuals are presented together, instead of in consecutive order.
6. The Segmenting Principle
Humans learn best when information is presented in segments, rather than one long continuous stream.
7. The Pre-Training Principle
Humans learn more efficiently if they already know some of the basics.
8. The Modality Principle
Humans learn best from visuals and spoken words than from visuals and printed words.
9. The Multimedia Principle
Humans learn best from words and pictures than just words alone.
10. The Personalization Principle
Humans learn best from a more informal, conversational voice than an overly formal voice.
11. The Voice Principle
Humans learn best from a human voice than a computer voice.
12. The Image Principle
Humans do not necessarily learn better from a talking head video.

3. Spiritual: Be a resource to at least one new person on your faculty before we meet again.
4. Season 14 cohorts are forming now! Please encourage a fellow teacher to join us next year! Personal testimonies go a long way, so we would be most grateful if you would help us by thinking of a fellow teacher or teachers that you could encourage to register for the 2022/2023 school year. They could be teachers from your school or any other school for that matter. With your help we will be able to impact more teachers and their students for the sake of the gospel. Share with them how valuable it’s been to you to be able to connect with other teachers serving in Lutheran schools outside of your school building and the positive impact it’s having on you and your students. We thank you in advance for any support of our efforts that you can give to us. Thank you for supporting our mission and vision and being an ambassador for TEC21! #TEC21lcms #LutheranSchoolsThrive #LuthEd
