1a. This session was beneficial.
1b. Why or why not?
Agree I learned how to do several things on Haiku.
Strongly
Agree
I love this very user friendly. Small # was great and instructor (Amanda) was incredible:
patient didn't make us feel stupid and let us learn by doing
Strongly
Agree
I only knew how to sign in to Haiku and now I can create my own page, edit it, add
people and much more. I am looking forward to the whole school using it.
2a. The content of this session can be applied to my work.
2b. Why or why not?
Agree I feel as this session will be helpful to me once Haiku is fully integrated to EED.
Strongly
Agree
Agree We are not using it in Pre-K yet but have been told that we will be.
3b. Please tell us anything else you want us to know.
Amanda was very knowledgeable on the topic. She was extremely patient. I also feel the small
number of participants enabled us to receive more attention and hands on time working with
Haiku.
Amanda did an amazing job letting us play around with it, she was patient and we learned a lot.
Optional: I have learned...
how to create classes, polls, attach twitter account to Haiku, and add photos.
Haiku
Optional: My question is...

Can I use it instead of the web page we currently use this is much more user friendly

1a. This session was beneficial.
1b. Why or why not?
Agree A lot of it I already knew because I'm in technology, but I found the Connect Content
Blocks helpful.
Strongly
Agree
This session was beneficial because I learned how to add my Twitter feed into my
Haiku page, how to add class polls, and how to add wikis and discussion boards.
Strongly
Agree
Agree I learned several different aspects of Haiku that I haven't used yet, but look forward to
using in the future.
Strongly
Agree
I feel more connected to the 5th grade and have a beter understanding of Haiku.
Strongly
Agree
I was so impressed with Melissa's presentation. she showed how she uses many
aspects of Haiku with her students and her classes.
Strongly
Agree
Melissa did a great job with her demo of the Haiku page. She answered all of the
questions and showed us tips and tricks to make our page exciting.
Strongly
Agree
We learned how to embed Twitter feeds, create hyperlinks, copy previous pages you
made, and much more! Melissa walked us through each of the steps and was able to
answer all of our questions.
Strongly
Agree
I think people enjoyed the class. I taught them some deeper tricks about Haiku that are
helpful. I also asked them to tell me what they wanted to know more about.
Strongly
Agree
I learned SO much about Haiku in a short amount of time! Melissa was such a good,
patient 'teacher' and it was 'student' led, everything she taught was recommended/
requested by us teachers.
Also, the class size was perfect and I really enjoyed that it was a hands-on class. I
learn best by doing, so instead of listening or watching a 'lesson' on technology and
then having to go back and do it later, I was able to do it right then. Wonderful!
2a. The content of this session can be applied to my work.
2b. Why or why not?
Agree
Agree The content of this session would be more applicable if my students all had personal
computers or iPads. I can, however, gain access to the technology needed in order to
use these aspects of Haiku.
Strongly
Agree

Absolutely! I was so excited to see how I can use some of the advanced Haiku
features in my classes.
Strongly
Agree
Strongly
Agree
We practiced on our own Haiku pages, and we were able to gather ideas for things we
can do in our classes. (ie: Wiki projects)
Agree I think the class can use what I gave them right away.
Strongly
Agree
I am SO proud of my Haiku page and how much more technology savvy I feel in such
a strong technology environment:) I have already gotten compliments from parents and
students and I know I have only touched the surface with how much I have to learn
about technology/Haiku, so I look forward to follow-up sessions.

1b. Why or why not?
Strongly
Agree
I loved Meredith highlighting some great books and suggesting how we could
incorporate them into the class. She is an AWESOME resource!
Agree I enjoyed learning about the variety of texts available in the media center.
Agree lots of good books to use!!
Strongly
Agree
It was great to hear about all the different resources in the media center and have the
time to look around and explore!
Agree We were able to take the time to hear about some authors we hadn't heard about
before.
Agree I have some great new books to use and I am excited. It is always great to get new book
ideas.
Strongly
Agree
I LOVED IT! I learned about new children's books and I immediately checked out
several, read them to my class, and gave one to another teacher.
2a. The content of this session can be applied to my work.
2b. Why or why not?
Strongly
Agree
Neutral I enjoyed learning a lot about Polacco, but I could have benefited from some more
targeted ideas for instruction. Or even looking at a few texts only and thinking of ways
as a group of how we could use those texts in our particular classrooms. Just more
focused instruction could have helped and been benficial
Agree There are not any French books, but there are alot of Spanish books to use
Strongly
Agree
I WILL come up here more and check out relevant books. We are so lucky to have such
a beautiful library and I want to use it more often. It is peaceful in here....
Strongly
Agree
We love to use stories that reference different topics as they come up in conversation or
curriculum.
Agree Yes
As a Kindergarten teacher I feel books are such an important part of our Literacy
centers.
Agree
3b. Please tell us anything else you want us to know.
Thanks!
I enjoyed this session and I am inspired to take more time for finding new books.
Optional: I have learned...
About new titles and authors.

1b. Why or why not?
Agree Both instructors were very engaging and did a great job of explaining the various apps. I
enjoyed seeing all of the examples as well.
Strongly
Agree
Love new ideas and new apps!
Strongly
Agree
Erin and Karen introduced us to several apps that were child-friendly and aimed toward
toe age of my students. The apps all have multiple uses.
Strongly
Agree
I learned about four different iPad apps that offer students opportunities to express
themselves in different ways. Story Wheel focused on recording children telling stories. I
liked the fact that this could be used in a small group lesson, which would give the
children a creative way to organize and sequence their thoughts.

The information was clearly presented, and I will use these apps in my classroom.

2b. Why or why not?
Strongly
Agree
I really enjoyed learning about all of the different interactive apps that can be used in
the classrooms. I think that the children would really enjoy all of the apps as well.
Strongly
Agree
We use iPads in the classroom a lot .
Strongly
Agree
see above
Strongly
Agree
The emphasis was on using iPad apps for young children in the classroom. Once the
children are taught how to use the apps, there are numerous possibilities for them use
the apps independently and interactively.
Agree
Agree I will use these apps in my classroom, but I think it would be especially useful to have
access to Skitch for Evernote since we are already using Evernote to house digital
portfolios. One of the biggest obstacles to using iPads to record things for me is figuring
out how to transfer saved projects into Evernote.
3b. Please tell us anything else you want us to know.
I would love to hear about more apps in the future!
I was pleased that the class was especially geared for teaching young children.
I am always interested in finding new ways to use the iPad in the classroom especially as it
pertains to collecting save-able projects for the digital portfolio.
Optional: I have learned...
I have learned many new ways to listen and record the thoughts and ideas of children.
Optional: My question is...
Although introduced to Skitch, I would like to have another opportunity to practice using the app in
connection with our My Learning Portfolio.

1a. This session was beneficial.
1b. Why or why not?
Strongly
Agree
I made a page to provide Book Fair Information to all 4th - 6th classes.
Strongly
Agree
Very helpful to "get my feet wet". Amanda was GREAT!! She did a great job
demonstrating, answering questions, one-on-one help, giving us time to try things, etc.
Strongly
Agree
I was familiar with Haiku, but it is nice to have concrete things geared towards art that I
can use the website for in the future.
Agree This is beneficial if this is where the school is moving, but my students aren't even in
Haiku. I love knowing how the 4-6th grade are using Haiku and this could replace my
class webpage, but it will probably not be that interactive for students if it is not very
compatible with the iPads.
Strongly
Agree
I learned a ton about Haiku and I had time to play on it!
Strongly
Agree
The session was great for beginners! I feel confident that I can now go home and
experiment with Haiku to learn more.
Strongly
Agree
Haiku is a useful and powerful tool for us.
2a. The content of this session can be applied to my work.
2b. Why or why not?
Strongly
Agree Other media information can be posted there.
Strongly
Agree I want to start a music page for my classes.
Strongly
Agree
It was nice to have the time to play around on the website and get familiar with the
settings. Having Amanda helped because she was right there to answer questions.
Neutral I think we are headed there, but we are not there yet.
Strongly
Agree I actually added to my Haiku page during class.
Strongly
Agree
Haiku is simple enough for students to use. I love the feature that allows teachers to
poll students quickly. I can see many ways Haiku could be used in the classroom.
Agree It is easy to use and a great way to communicate with students and their parents.
3b. Please tell us anything else you want us to know.
Love the small class size for individual attention.
Amanda did an excellent job explaining and letting us play!
It was great!
Optional: I have learned...

What Haiku is.
How it can be used in the classroom.
How 4-6th is using Haiku.
What Haiku is
What Haiku is used for
Optional: My question is...
Is this going to replace class website pages? If so...I think the pages need to be more visually
appealing and unique to the teachers:)
If we are moving to this when will we know?
How other teachers use Haiku at Trinity?

1a. This session was beneficial.
1b. Why or why not?
Strongly
Agree
I liked creating a level chart for my specific class, and then looking at others to get
ideas of how I can be better.
Strongly
Agree
This process helped me to look at the skill and break it down into managable pieces.
Strongly
Agree
Very beneficial to what I do everyday!
Strongly
Agree
I was able to apply the Level 1-4 concept to what I'm teaching now in grammar.
Strongly
Agree
It was good to actually practice this method-- how it feels to both TAKE a leveled
assessment and CREATE the levels.
Strongly
Agree
It got me thinking. I like empowering students to know what is expected.
Strongly
Agree
I learned SO MANY new skills!
Strongly
Agree
The process promotes student engagement and motivation. There was a testimonial
about how students respond positively to clear goals and expectations.
Strongly
Agree
I learned some basics about leveling up and see how it can be beneficial in my
classroom!
Agree It was a great exercise in thinking about the proficiency levels and where we would like
all students to be with a given skill. Practicing how to work backwards was important to
see how to break down the skill. I also liked the idea of not having "grades" but levels
and how that empowers students to learn to ask question.
Strongly
Agree
It was exactly what I needed. I have noticed that my kids have a hard time asking for
help or knowing when they need help. Having "I can" statements will help them know
where they are and where they need to go.
Strongly
Agree
Concrete information
Specific learning goal/challenge
Time to think
Time to work
Time to evaluate
Time to consult with experts

Strongly
Agree
Agree As an assistant, I don't often teach a whole block from start to finish, but I may have
the opportunity; and maybe I can apply it to small pieces that I teach.
Strongly
Agree
I look forward to creating more of these!
Strongly
Agree
Strongly
Agree
I can use what I learned in the classroom TODAY!
Strongly
Agree
My Learning is greatly about students taking ownership of their learning through the
analysis of development (big picture). Being able to see the learning objective and self-
assess progress towards the goal is a necessary skill for learning progressions (steps
along the path).
Strongly
Agree
I can use it to better equip my students with meaningful questions to help them learn to
their highest potential.
Strongly
Agree
Strongly
Agree
I want to start creating "I can.." statements with and for my kids. I think it is a great way
for them to manage their own learning.
Strongly
Agree
It takes a different type of "doing" to make this concept clear to non-readers. It is
powerful to teach learners how to be in charge of their learning.
3b. Please tell us anything else you want us to know.
very cool!
I loved this class! I felt very energized by the work.
If we can have time to create these statements with our teams and vertically.
It helps for me to have time to think & do. Evaluate & synthesize. It also really helps to have you
there for guidance & advi
Optional: My question is...
I wonder if this might make struggling readers be even more self aware of their struggles and
effect their self esteem even more?
I think most will want to "level up" but I worry about my struggling kids.

1b. Why or why not?
Agree It is great to find out what other teaches are doing.
Neutral
There were not many people in this class and it was difficult to share Second Grade
ideas with fifth and sixth grade teachers, but I did get some good ideas from them.
Agree We all need ideas of what to place in My Learning!
2a. The content of this session can be applied to my work.
2b. Why or why not?
Agree Since it is relatively new, I love getting ideas from others.
Agree
We discussed if My Learning should be more student or teacher directed. We are all
struggling with this, so it was helpful to hear others' thoughts on this.
Agree I have new ideas of what to place in My Learning.
3b. Please tell us anything else you want us to know.
As a group, we still feel unclear about the ultimate end goal of My Learning and how much should
be teacher driven.
Optional: I have learned...

Wonderful!
Agree I have been interested in learning Dropbox more fluently for personal and professional
storing and sharing.
Strongly
Agree
Found the class very informative. Happy that this application is another way for us to
share what we are learning seamlessly within our community.
Strongly
Agree
It was very helpful to have an tutorial on how dropbox works, how to use it, and ways to
use it in the classroom. This class helped to give me a clearer idea of how to use
dropbox!
2a. The content of this session can be applied to my work.

I hope to use the dropbox in the classroom and I also hope to use it to more easily add

Strongly

I was already using dropbox but now I have extended my uses of it
Strongly
Agree
I am excited to now be able to email a dropbox link - to parents or personally
Strongly
Agree
Strongly
Agree
Agree It was explicitly taught. It helped me strengthen my understanding of Dropbox and how I
can use it to supplement documentation and sharing in my classroom.
Strongly
Agree
Students are able to build independence by transferring work from one place to another
with little or no help from a teacher.
Agree Yes, I think I can use dropbox in various ways in my classroom...
3b. Please tell us anything else you want us to know.

Love what Ashley is doing with putting the learning in the hands of her students!
Strongly
Agree
As someone with out a Twitter account, I loved learning about Tweeting and found it
so interesting to see how students can become more engaged in learning by
Tweeting.
Strongly
Agree
Ashley shared how she uses Twitter in her classroom and how she puts it in the
hands of the students with her supervision. This gave some relief and offered me
another way to view using Twitter without feeling overwhelmed or compelled to
Tweet ALL DAY.
Strongly
Agree
I learned how I can incorporate student Twitter in the classroom. I found her idea of
having a "CTO" in the classroom is genius. Great window into what he/she is
learning that day. She said they are more engaged as a result, and I believe it! So
cool.

Strongly

I was able to reflect and talk through some ideas of how to use Twitter in
Kindergarten. I was inspired! My next steps are to have a discussion with my class
about Twitter (what they know, etc.?). Then I will start using Twitter in the classroom
by having the photographer for the week take pictures during recess of creations,
children playing, nature, etc. and the last 5 minutes of recess we will choose a picture
to tweet!
I also plan to use Twitter as a form of pen pals when we study Mexico. My plan is to
connect with an elementary school classroom in Mexico that is Tweeting and
exchange ideas about culture.
Strongly

When I have my own classroom, I would love to use several of these ideas/resources.
