Revising My GAME Plan

This week I am revising my GAME Plan. The questions below will be my guideline.

What have I learned so far that you can apply in your instructional practice?

I have learnt that although some teachers are resistant to new technologies, some might be extremely passionate. One of the challenges that I have is to balance the two opposite poles. While some teachers are running ahead, others fall way behind. I learnt to be patient and support the ones who are resistant with my knowledge and experience whereas I support the ones who run ahead with relevant resources to dwell into their passion.

What goals am I still working toward?

I am consistently working toward a better understanding of integrating technology in the classrooms. I am trying to find platforms where I can share my experience and learn more from others. I believe in personal interaction and support of colleagues. The first hand experience that we have is priceless and sharing enriches it.

Based on the NETS-T, what new learning goals will you set for yourself?

NETS-T talks about “facilitating technology-enhanced experiences that address content standards and student technology standards.” Based upon this statement I would like to set up a goal on developing an appropriate scope and sequence for IT in my school. Currently we have an outdated one and it needs to be updated given the fact that 21st century learners need to be supported with relevant technologies we need to have a close eye on this development.

If I am not ready to set new learning goals, how will I extend what I have learned so far?

I feel like I am ready to set new goals and support them with new professional development opportunities.

What learning approaches will I try next time to improve your learning?

I’d like to be a part of an online community of international teachers exchanging ideas and experience. We have an online curriculum center (IB OCC) where we can collaborate on our curricula, where we connect and share sample units. I have been a part of an online community on iPads but I am in need of more connections with the teachers all around the worls.


Questions on my GAME Plan

This week I need to consider these questions on my GAME plan:

Are you finding the information and resources you need?
Yes, actually I have been very lucky and found a lot about ICT integration in my area. On top of that I will be meeting a lot of colleagues and leading a session on iPad integrations in the classrooms. Moreover we have Alan November visiting our school for a talk, that I find myself lucky that I wil have the opportunity to meet himand share my ideas.
Do you need to modify your action plan?
I think my action plan is going on pretty well at the moment. I am meeting people and exchanging ideas and expertise.
What have you learned so far?
I have learned that I need to be open minden, positive and willing to share.
What new questions have arisen?
How can I stop procrastinating? This make sme lose a lot of time. I can easily be distracted when I am reserching online. I start somewhere and end up i another place. I need to be more organized. I am not good at scheduling things. Have never been I guess. And when the deadlines arrive I get stressed and collapse. It is definitely not good!


Carrying out on my Game plan

I have been working on my goals as a part of my masters course and a part of my appraisal at school. One of the recent goals that I set for myself is that I want to be in touch with other ICT facilitators in my region. Last year we started a group called Tokyo edutech. I had the chance to attend one meeting last year and it was very nice meeting people working in the same field. This year the meetings are held during the school hours so it will be a bit of a challenge for me to attend these meetings as I am runing from one class to the other every day. As I am sure that it would be very beneficial for my professional development, I need to take action and talk about these meetings with my department head and the admin team. As a feedback from the meetings, I am planning to report what the other schools are doing in the region to my admin team. Tis will give me a great opportunity to reevalutae myself, skills and my performance.
