It was a month of celebrations, of learning journeys that finished but really only just begun. Our ImagineerTech, pilot ePortfolio and Partners in Inquiry groups gathered for celebrations of caring and sharing. There were shared “aha moments” in implementing an inquiry process and watching it unfold with students. But it was the reflective process that connected all the pieces of the puzzle into a living story. Sometimes I think this process is like a conductor that listens intently to all the nuances of the orchestra and draws or softens all the parts so they coordinate both as a whole and as individuals. Assessment in this arena is not “wait until the end applause” but a constant negotiation of the movements of the present. The one thing that one can rely upon is that constant adjustment is a given.
These are their comments captured via “low tech” and gifted to you.
