4 MODELING

Support: Parents will be able to communicate and support each other. There will be teams. Each team will have their own team leader. They will support other parent-teachers when needed.

This training will engage each parent-teacher through various approaches (online discussions, modeling Schoology) so that they can implement actively when learning new skills and practices. The professional development course will consist of different types of activities in each session. Parent-teachers will have a chance to create their own courses by using Schoology and other technology devices.

Specific: This professional development will be specific to Homeschool parent-teachers

PLANNING FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Modeling: Modeling is a highly effective instructional strategy in that it allows learners to understand the new practice.Team leaders will model how to utilize technology tools to create a blended learning classroom. Parent-teachers will learn how to apply Blended-Learning by using SCHOOLOGY, some other apps, and digital devices. Parent-teachers will observe each other’s work and provide feedback.

How to Foster Collaboration?

  -In addition to Twitter, we will use Skype and google docs.These tools will be used exchanging help and resources between each other.Parent-teachers will be able to join  instantly and ask or answer questions.

  -It is significant for all team members to collaborate regularly with each other. At every turn, I will create and encourage collaboration, so team members can feel more ownership of the program. I will use surveys to obtain feedback. I will adapt my plans based on new information and try to improve members’ knowledge and skills.

-I will organize 5 teams and assign their leaders.

 -Team leaders model using technology skills to create blended learning classroom. They will help the struggling parent-teachers and answer their questions

-Parent-teachers will take the initiative in learning so they will learn more things and learn better. They will have freedom of choice in deciding their own objectives. They will be responsible for their kid’s achievement. -They will have equal opportunity, participation, and outcomes. -Project based assignments will be given to gain and retain certain clear knowledge and skill, or to produce some other lasting change in themselves. -Assistance will be continuous but intentionally every week assistance will be decreased to improve their learning. - Resources, supportive and consistent leadership, and learning opportunities will be available from external team leaders. -Mutual respect, collaborative spirit, action-reflection will be kept throughout the learning process.  Parent-teachers will be encouraged: -Find time for their learning -Take certain steps to increase the motivation for their learning -Detect any factor that has been backing or hindering their learning

HOW TO FOSTER SELF-DIRECTED LEARNING?

WHO LEADS AND WHEN?

I am the leader and my audience is parent-teachers.I will make teams.Each of the team will have their own team leader.These leaders will be in charge of assisting and modeling BL practices to other parent-teachers.

Every week we will make a meeting.These meetings will be 40+40 minutes long.They will consist of two parts as information and practice. In the first part, parent-teachers will get the information and in the second part, they will learn the implementation of one technology tool. By integrating meeting they will gain proficiency, advice, and reflections throughout the year.

The second session will mainly focus on addressing problems and building proficiency in utilizing digital tools and apps for Blended Learning.Parent-teachers will learn how to use effectively different types of digital tools and apps for BL. Each week one tool will be chosen and members will learn how to use it effectively for this purpose.At the end members will begin creating their own goals and expectations by utilizing taught technology.When needed they will be able to implement the model individually and make necessary alignments.

In the first session focus will be Blended Learning, WIG ,and Schoology. It is very important because if team members know clearly, what are the wildly important goals and how they can accomplish, that motivate them to implement the other steps of the execution. In order to get that point, we will make a meeting every week and practice Schoology. By integrating meeting, they will gain proficiency, advice, and reflections throughout the year.
