In Stage 1, we heard that watching a video by itself isn’t often helpful.
Jozette's idea is innovative, feasible to implement, and has the potential for big impact. Help Jozette get ready for Innovator's weekend by sharing your feedback. How would you make this idea work in your setting?
Being a middle/high school teacher, I often compete for my students' attention when in class. In reflecting on the awesome webinar I just attended on the Redesign Challenge, I am inspired when thinking about how I might "hack" some ideas together to answer today's writing prompt. As Chris Bronke states, "vulnerable confidence" is the main ingredient to the mindset of great hacking. I asked myself what I would wish for if money, time and resources were no object. I can picture my students and I working on creating a video package of how to transition new teachers into classroom management. Even the roughest toughest disengaged student comes to life on Facebook, Snap Chat and Instagram. It excites me to think of incorporating real life scenarios and student voice/acting skills to create a meaningful and fun way for students to 'teach' the teacher.
The effects of this idea are multiple. First, it becomes a class, where students are given a 'challenge' of course to 'create difficult real-world scenarios with teachers.' It also gives new teachers and teachers who struggle with CM the ability to 'see' students that might be potential problem children, in an educational, engaged capacity, where they are a source of "the mash up of learning."
This could be piloted using a leadership class, an advisory period, or perhaps a class with adult volunteers ( teachers, community members, parents and business partners.)
