Magic Mirror on the wall… who’s the raddest of them all?
This past Saturday, I had the awesome opportunity to travel down to Luray, Virginia and lead a three hour professional development inspired by my upcoming book (there’s a sentence that still feels SUPER weird to type and read back out loud). I’m a big believer in radical transparency and growth through constructive critique, and so I was incredibly thankful when the PCPS admin team sent along copies of participant feedback on the day’s events to help me get a bit more insight on what’s working and what’s still in need of some TLC.
Here’s the full boat of comments from Page County teachers, if you’re feeling so inclined.
THE GOOD | It looks like people are walking away with a ton of ideas.
- Loved the social & technology aspects. Mind-blowing on data / score aspect.
- This was fantastic. I loved it! I would come visit another one of your seminars.
- Excellent presenter – energetic, fun, knowledgeable.
One of the biggest things I love about video games is that they are lightning fast in providing players with specific, actionable feedback — creating a risk-rich environment that’s jam-packed with life, energy, and the authentic desire to improve. If our classrooms can replicate even a fraction of that same energy, we will have moved the needle in the right direction.
THE BAD | Slow. It. Down.
- Great presentation and information. Presenter had great information and ideas. More time would be helpful as we were pressed for time.
- The pace was very fast and overwhelming.
- Little overwhelmed with the speed and how I could implement the material. How do you have time and have a life?
