Teacher Feedback on Professional Development with Gilly 7.7 Science CLIMATE CHANGE ICT Success Stories Please fill out the text box below the Strength, Weakness, Opportunities and Threats of the professional development you received Responses it seems very easy to do, but i will certainly need help again, when i will try to do it by myself. thanks anyway for the first pd i got. good info, but too much for me to take in at once and i've forgotten some of it, will have to re-pd - not shaun's fault! shaun is very usefull and halped me a lot with recording and downloding. i would strongly recomend to use this rare opportunity to work with shaun on one on one. practical real hands on experience in the classroom working with students. the real test with pd is actually applying what we have learnt in the classroom. shaun has achieved this goal. all was good, just need the opportunity to practice. good collaborative work - i'm getting there!
If you would like some 1:1 or small group PD, request a meeting via email to Shaun Gillespie
