Notes from the Tch Laureates

As President’s Day rolls towards us, I’d like for you to consider, in the Jeffersonian spirit of exploration, a new set of Tch videos that focus on Learning Labs, an innovative type of collaborative professional learning. Laureate Kristin Gray has done a wonderful job packaging together a blog as well as three associated videos: Creating a Collaborative Culture of Learning, Teacher Strategy: Teacher Time Out, and Connecting the Dots (the last is interactive!). The idea behind Learning Labs is to shift professional development to a place where teachers are actively involved and feel ownership in the learning that occurs throughout the process. It’s high-quality content which I’m sure will add value to your practice.

Thanks for all that you do.
