Suggested Action Plan (fill it out as you see fit)

Summary paragraph:

Goal:

3. To front load ideas and protocols for individual student ePortfolios
4. To extend my personal IT toolbox to enable me to extend the toolbox of students in my class to enable them to make effective choices on how they could do a task, in a way which meets their learning style and interest.

Additional Action plan:
To look at additional PD through identified opportunities budget in school.


The resistance:
I don’t really feel that I will meet resistance, this will be in line with the school.
I believe my team would buy into this and we could move forward together.

Is it a lizard brain issue– only for me! It is also a time issue and I need to push myself to make the time.
