Describe the highlight of your week at NCCAT and why it was important to you.

The highlight of my week at NCCAT was the session Twitter and my PLN.

  • How do you plan to implement something you learned at NCCAT in your classroom? I am planning on having my students to set up their own twitter account and then use these accounts to document and communicate back with my students.
  • Which session was your least favorite? Why culture matters was probably my least favorite.  Why? Even thought I enjoyed the session, I felt that this session was going to be more personalized to North Carolina students and I thought it was going to entail more solutions on how we as teachers would work with the various cultures.  She did go over this, but I thought it could have been deeper.
  • How has the week at NCCAT compared with other PD opportunities you have attended?  The week at NCCAT was very intense.  I don’t remember PD sessions in the past that presented such intensity.  There were alot of sessions and workshop that provided quite abit of information.
  • Which session did you find most useful and why? The session on Marketing yourself as an educator.  In the past, I have thought back on situation in which I did not market my agriculture program.  I could have done a better job showing what I have done and presented pictures to support the success of my program.
