#craftreconciliation: Behind the scene

Yesterday, my class blogs began with “I am in the building today, but not in class.”

We don’t often have the opportunity to learn with our colleagues in prime time, but we did yesterday.

What a luxury! (HUGE thanks to Simcoe County District School Board and Wikwemikong Board of Education for supporting this work!)

In preparation for the #craftreconciliation challenge, Jaclyn Calder, Shannon Simpson, and I coordinated a day of learning for participating educators. The bulk of the day was spent in our own boards where together we:

  • created our handshakes and uploaded them to D2L
  • commented on other teachers handshakes
  • played with Hypothes.is
  • practiced using Google Hangouts
  • downloaded and experimented with Minecraft

But we also spent some time together in a Google Hangout where we went over the various learning spaces, events, and resources designed for this challenge.

By the end of the day, everyone felt more comfortable and truly excited!
