Today I had a workshop with about 45 teachers on Google Tools for Educators. Unfortunately, I was only given an hour to present. In order for me to give an effective PD (Professional Development), I like to have at least 2 hours. This way, participants can have some crucial play time. I don't like to give multiple hand outs and ask teachers to go through each piece of paper. I'd much rather walk them through the process and give them time to play and explore.
Fortunately, I was able to convince the administration to have me return and work with each grade level in small groups. This will at least allow me to focus in on individual needs and help teachers get over their frustrations.
