Welcome back! The ITLMS team is excited about the upcoming year and all the promises it holds. As a new member of this team, I've been working to streamline many of the resources and means of communication that the ITLMS team uses to support you and provide timely information. It is certainly a work in progress, so I'd love your feedback (site at HERE as a draft, and will be moved to bit.ly/itlms once finalized).
I am also pretty jazzed about the work our team is doing with the district in making actionable our Strategic Plan- particularly the Learning and Teaching portion of the plan. We know that digital learning is a means by which we can amplify instruction and that technology plays an integral role in today's classrooms.
Hopefully as we begin this new year, you are setting some specific goals for yourself in terms of how you plan to up your game with digital learning. I'd like to challenge you to articulate those goals and hold yourself accountable. Create a list or visual and keep it where you can see it. Better yet, set a digital reminder every so often or use a tool like FutureMe.org to do a self check on where you are in your journey towards your goals.
I'm glad to be here, and I'm looking forward to working with you all!
