Your answer
What topic or challenge related to 'global collaboration' are you thinking about exploring?
We just want to get an idea of where teams may be going with this topic. If you haven't decided yet, it's ok to just put some brainstorms down, or to say 'we haven't decided yet.'
Your answer
Is anyone on your team interested in attending the Design Institute at the Innovation Center on 10/17 at 4 pm for 0.25 credit?
This is an optional PD for exploration of design thinking and support for planning your team's approach to this year's challenge. If interested, this is NOT a sign up - just a gauge of interest. There will be a link on OPD's website for sign up soon - check for updates, or email Becky Peters with any questions.
Would you like to be assigned a liaison to support your team throughout the process?
Since this is a multiple-month project, it helps to have someone to be able to ask questions of, connect with, and run ideas past. Liaisons will be STEM coordinators, Learning Technology Coaches, Instructional Technology Coaches, Content Coordinators, and other support staff from the district. Liaisons will be familiar with the challenge, with the rubric and judges expectations, and with design in general so they will be helpful to your team in polishing your white paper / pitch / next steps at each stage of the process. You can utilize their support as much or as little as you wish at each stage. Each liaison will only be assigned ONE team so that there will be no conflicts of interest.
