Stage 3 Learning Plan
Day 1-I will begin by introducing myself and giving the class a pre-assessment survey to see how and if they use Picasso this year. This will give me some background knowledge and I will then be ableto accommodate the class in my planning.
The following is the bulleted list of how the staff development will be ran.
Begin with passing out the How to Access Picasso at Home handout. As a whole, we will walk through the handout as I show the class the step by step process. The class will not participate inthis because this will be there homework when they leave the class. These steps can only beaccessed at home when they are not connected to the county wireless internet.
After going over the handout address questions and concerns and give the class their
Day 1 Part 2- Picasso (step by step)Today’s session will be very informal. Go step by step following the handout. Demonstrate forteachers how to access each step and the benefits of each. If a teacher has a specific question orcomment allow for sharing.Show the class how to access the Picasso page and login in with their teacher login.
Demonstrate where to go once they have logged in successfully. This will be based on the
teacher pre-assessment of what part of Picasso the students want to learn more about.This can range from lesson plans, unit outlines, assessments, blogs, etc.For this staff development the teachers wanted to see how to access lesson plans, benchmark testing, and RTI documents.
Follow the handout as a guide, this will also allow teachers to take notes on each section of thehandout.Using the handout guide walk the students through Picasso. Picasso will be shown on a Smart
Board or projector. During this time explain and take questions based on what the slideinformation is.
