On Saturday I had the opportunity to sit down with a group of NYC DOE teachers, administrators, and change directors at the NYC DOE Gap App Challenge workshop. Our team is honored to have been selected to work with the intrepid teachers of IS 49, a title 1 middle school on Staten Island.
The learning began on Saturday as we spent time troubleshooting how to reconfigure the work flow of our partner teachers at IS 49 to ensure that students would be producing digital work in their Google Apps domain on a regular basis. Having been a teacher for 20 years myself, I continue to be amazed at the flexibility and willingness to adapt that I discover every time I work with a group of teachers. It is with honor, humility, and hope that I enter into a year of discovery invention with our IS 49 partners.
