2017-2018 School Year

My official retirement date for full-time robotic residencies was June 1, 2017. I know there are schools who have just started with robotics or have had a significant staff turn-over and would like to continue getting support. I am setting aside these times to work intensely with teachers to help them become independent.
The following model from Canyon Meadows seemed to work:
  • Planning 
    This is where a grade-team or lead teacher(s) were released to plan and actually do the project. Some teams were strong enough we could do one project before recess and work with a second team on a different project after recess.
  • Instruction Modeling
    This is where I will go into the classroom and help the teacher introduce a difficult aspect of the project. For example, one teacher felt fine introducing decimal turns and the light sensor, but wanted support using variables. I came in and did this with her and the students.
  • Troubleshooting
    This is where the teacher, students and I look at the problems groups are having and find solutions to them. This it typically closer to the end of the project.

Use your morning as you wish: troubleshoot with one group before recess and do planning with teachers after recess if that works for you.

If you would like to book a time (or times) send me an email and we can discuss what would work for your specific case. The fee is $360/half day ($378 with GST) invoiced monthly.
