Postal Reminder 
  • At the end, teachers identify specific actions and/or changes that they will personally implement. They will write them down on a self-addressed postcard.
  • An administrator will mail the postcards to teacher later in the year as a friendly reminder.

Next Steps:
  • Teachers reflect on the module's objectives and how they apply to their teaching practice
  • Teachers create/adapt a lesson using the lesson template, implementing TPACK and 1-to-1 strategies and reflect on its success.
  • Teachers try additional TPACK and 1-to-1 strategies and discuss their benefit(s).

Follow Up Suggestions:
  • Teachers continue departmental discussions and have professional development with the TPACK taxonomies.
  • Coaches offer further discussion of 1-to-1 strategies that could be implemented in all School2Home classrooms.
  • Teachers continue to share resources and experiences with other School2Home colleagues and teachers throughout the state of CA at the Brokers of Expertise website
