Google Teacher Academy Sydney
I was very fortunate to be able to attend the Sydney GTA this past week. It was an amazing opportunity to meet many inspiring educators, expand my learning network, open doors to new ideas, and uncover many more questions about how technology can leverage learning.
I’m still decompressing–the pace and volume of material covered in such a short space of time was definitely overwhelming.
The biggest challenge with any PD is how to integrate what you learn when you get back to your own context. Often there is not much support and accountablity–not so with the GTA–I like their follow-up strategy that requires Google Certified Teachers to reflect on their learning, and write and execute an action plan to be reviewed by someone in the cohort. (Thanks Cyberspaced Penny!) I’m looking forward to the opportunity to share, and continue to learn from this experienced community of educators.
