After #LEA2013, CLS teachers share and collaborate

If you are ever looking for a great way to share and collaborate after a conference, I recommend the set-up that our faculty used today. Each teacher was responsible for a 10-minute presentation for their colleagues about something they learned at the 2013 LEA Convocation. We had 15 teachers who needed to present in 4 sessions. The schedule and registration form can be found HERE, and it will give you an idea of how the time was structured. This was a great way for teachers to really consider how they were going to take some information from the conference and apply it to their instruction and classrooms. Since we had 4 teachers presenting at one time, everyone had a choice in which presentation they wanted to attend. Many of the teachers received enough hard copies or digital copies of the resources that were shared at the conference and then were able to share them with their colleagues here at Central Lutheran School. In addition, our tech coach Amanda Graham, has created a folder in Google Drive for us to archive the resources from the conference. Our hope is that the conference and this sharing time will encourage collaboration to continue.


  1. This was a great opportunity! I enjoyed hearing my colleagues present what they had learned. Great PD day!

  2. It is a wonderful chance for teachers for sharing their opinions and views about the conference and hear others feelings also.
