Staff Meeting #MTBoS30 2 of 30
So it’s that Wednesday in the month, which means for the 3 o’clock hour we have a school site staff meeting.
The first thought that comes to mind is a comparison between this and the classroom. We come in, sit down, and digest information (for about an hour). The most traditional delivery is verbal, with an occasional slide for visual aid. There is no formal test but we are still expected to be responsible for the content.
I know the information has value, but is it possible that a staff meeting can have a little more interest? Educators are willing to use creative planning of activities in the class to break the monotony of classic lecture. Sometimes it’s even expected. Is it fair to ask for something similar of those organizing the staff meeting?
1) #edchat style
2) compose the information in a shared web document/slideshow and have questions/comments fielded early
3) make it interactive with polls or something like @peardeck, even if it’s just for fun
4) incorporate media, please
6) things that suck
The meeting is over and so is this post.
