Ending our @BrightBytes Day

BrightBytesAfter reviewing our data findings in our school group, we are sharing out to the larger group our data findings in each of our areas of needs. We still need to make our goals a bit more concrete and create concrete actions for our staff.

I’m coming away with not only our data findings, but also the idea of having examples of tools and practices for each of the 4C’s in our elementary, middle, and high school grade levels.

Additionally, left on the table is to explore the Digital Privacy, Safety, and Security Module Framework survey being developed by Clarity. Also, Early the Warning Framework is a survey designed to mix demographic, academic, attendance, and behavior data to help flag potential opportunities to help students avoid dropping out of school. There is also a Leadership Framework survey tool to help identify needs and expectations of our leaders.

Designing for Success with @BrightBytes

TreeWhat is design thinking?

Design thinking is a way of thinking as a solution finding process, it’s about solving problems for others.

  • Needs Assessment: What do we need. What are we providing?
  • Design and Development: How do we do our work? What role does tech play?
  • Feedback and Adjustment: How do we measure efficacy? How quickly do we iterate?
  • Delivery: What delivery channels do we use? How do we spread the word?

Planning for Action: Private source document framework.

BrightBytes at CESA 6

Speech BubbleAs I sit here at our CESA 6 building and we begin to get in the right mindset to unpack our District’s BrightBytes data, I am deciding to use this platform for my note taking. Right now I have my site hooked up to my LinkedIn, Twitter, and Google accounts.

Usually, at these events, I use Twitter to keep my notes and share with others. I think this tool will give me a longer form and more flexible environment for reflection and collaborations.

So, here we go!
