In my role as the Instructional Technology Coordinator for my school district, I develop and deploy technology-based PD for the 850 teachers in my district. I provide one-off PD workshops, semester-long academies, PLC collaboration, just-in-time digital trainings and more. I love working with teachers because it keeps me close to the classroom and, after all, I am a teacher at heart.
The fact that developing a communication plan is paramount to any organization's success is not lost on me. In fact, I feel strongly that one of the most important parts of my role is communication including communicating the vision for technology's role in my district, communicating with educators before, during, and after professional development takes place. I think a lot about and have the best way to communicate my message. Below are a few of the ways I connect with teachers in my district to share my message and communicate before, during, and after PD has take place.
Below are some of the methods I use to communicate with the 850 teachers I serve. My hope is that sharing these communication methods will help me reflect on my practices and help others ideas on how to increase communication with the groups they serve.
