Looking to Connect with Your Teachers on a More Personal Level?
Calling cards...the old school way of leaving your information, but are they outdated?
I'm a new face in a new school, so who knows how nice I am or how I can work with teachers to integrate technology into their classroom? No one! The first challenge of my school year is to gain trust and give teachers support with little things like hooking up their projectors - small, troubleshooting tech issues that make their jobs a bit easier.
But what could I do to really get them to respond? To engage them in a more personal way? The Teacher Techology Calling Card!
Why a Calling Card?
To give teachers a personal note on feedback, show them I'm seeing their use of technology (even if its just a document camera), building their confidence and giving them suggestions for tech.
How does the Calling Card work?
Three teachers emailed me with answers to the "I Wonder" section of the calling card. Four more teachers talked to me about adding technology to their classes. They were excited that I stopped in and left a card! I'm excited because I feel like I made a real connection to my teachers. More than a 50% response is incredible!
