Our group chose Google Hangouts to meet once again so we could screen share through strong connectivity. Unfortunately Steven’s computer had trouble handling the screenshare feature of Google Hangouts. We troubleshooted the issue for about 10 minutes before getting this important feature to work properly.
Choosing an Exploratory Question
At first we discussed several answers and ideas that related to the question. Eventually we began recording official ideas on the Artifact Tracking Sheet.This resource allowed the whole group to provide potential solutions for Steven. I have described these solutions in the video screen cast below:
Answering Exploratory Question
As described in the video, each member of the team contributed at least one resource in the form of a lesson online application, blog, or document that could support Steven’s students as readers. The purpose of each one of our suggestion was to help eliminate and instructional or learning gap. Identifying and eliminating such gaps is a critical component of the data triangulation process.
Despite a few small technical difficulties, the second data meeting was a huge success. The meeting allowed us to closely interact with real data from another teacher. This ultimately helped me consider implications about my own data and ponder ways in which I am helping my students grow as readers.
