Elementary SWAT Teams
Ideas from Holcomb Bridge Middle School in Roswell, GA
Offer PD for teachers during their planning time or lunch time
Have a SWAT bulletin board for students Did you know? How to ..
Kids on SWAT are excused from their class, provided teacher allows and grades are good
Teachers are more likely to participate if we guilt them by saying kids took time to create PD for them.
Teachers could also just come by at certain times and see a “demo”
Let the teachers see how the tech directly impacts their classroom instruction/assessment
Students personally invite all of their own teachers to the training(s)
Teachers suggest a project they want to do that involves transformational technology.
SWAT team creates an exemplar for the teacher to use
Choose one “thing” to be the focus each month.
