‘Tis the Season of Sharing at MPS

Shawn, teacher at MPS, inspires other ITLs with his multimedia units used with his students.

It’s hard to believe a year and a 1/2 has flown by with all of our PD days at MPS (Milwaukee Public Schools), Wisconsin. This past week I had (along with Cindy) the pleasure and opportunity to wrap up the calendar year with the MPS ITL group! It was great to see many familiar faces of educators we’ve worked with over the past year and 1/2 on Integrating DE streaming. This week we had the chance to take them a step further to prepare them to share out at their school sites creative ways to use multimedia presentations and digital storytelling with their teachers and their students. For me, it’s so rewarding to hear the “ohs and awes” when showing/sharing simple (and sometimes complex) tips and tricks when working with multimedia and digital storytelling. But the best gift of all this week was the amount of sharing and collaboration among ITLs. Several ITLs have already begun to dive deep into both ways to engage their students, and they certainly inspired each other with the number of teacher created and student created projects that were shared! Keep on sharing and collaborating, and as we like to say “You all are each others best resource!” And Thank You for sharing your days with us!
