A Note from Becky
Welcome! I hope this workshop inspires and helps you to implement blended learning in your classroom. This workbook is yours - add in notes, images, pages, etc. to make it what you need.

We are going to be sharing ideas in the library and in our Group Reflection Journal - I firmly believe that we can learn so much from the teacher down the hall (or across the district). Your comfort is important to me - let me know if you don't want your workbook shared!

I'm always happy to help - even when the workshop is done!

Intention Setting
"Intentions are guiding principles that can help us, as individuals, connect our present actions to our personal values. They focus on who we are and who we could be in this moment" (Edutopia, 2019).  Intentions differ from our learning goals as those are very clear targets that we are all working towards.  

Your task: please set your intention for this workshop by writing them below. If you are comfortable, please share your intention with a peer nearby.

Here are several sample intentions if you need ideas:
"I want to be fully engaged today."
"I want to get out of my comfort zone."
"I want to learn from my peers."
"I want to share my ideas."
Your task: Watch up to 2:09 of this video from McGraw Hill with Catlin Tucker explaining the station rotation model.
