Alexandrea commented on One Change a Week

Hi Mark, Drea from the Google for Education team here. I'd love to dive into a few things. Firstly, what support/resources would you need from a district/principal standpoint to implement this into the classroom? With regards to the "beyond" group. How do you see districts involving the outside community into this idea of "change"? Are they also sharing failures? Or coaching through failures?

Lastly, I do see similarities between this on our post on "Fail Wall". Could these ideas possibly be combined? Could the fail wall be a project for the "one change a week" lesson plan?

Alexandrea commented on Show & Tell for High School

Hi Hannah, Drea here with our Google for Education team. Love this idea of embracing innovation, creativity, and individuality among students. My feedback is on par with Carolyn Wendell. Curious to know if you've tried the step by step plan in your own classroom? Did you need buy in from your principal? Have other teachers at your school been inspired to implement show & tell? What time of support would a teacher need to make this happen at another district?
