Hi Folks

I hope you are enjoying the Deepavali Festivities!

Okay, this will be a slightly longer email so please bear with me.

First some admin details

  1. Welcome to SP Aaron and Chee Seng! You are slightly off sync with the weekly online workshops, but dont worry, since they are online, you can catch up.

2. Here’s the CT Schedule for all of you from now till 2017. This is so that you can keep track of what you need to do.

3. As you all already know, SP has launched FB@Work. I hope you have signed up for it and activated your account. Personally, I feel it is more user friendly and we can communicate easily using that platform rather than using this Educator platform where communication is limited. SO, I will be setting up a group for CT participants so that we can communicate and share stuff easily. So can I please urge you to set up your FB@Work account asap as I will be soon decomissioning this site. Look out for the email that says “onepublicservice” in your SP email. Let me know if you cant find it.

Okay enough of admin. This week, we will be continuing the Assessment series and we will be looking at “Performance Based Assessment”. Do go through the workshop carefully as part of your portfolio submission, you need to design a performance based assessment and the accompanying rubrics. As usual, let me know if you have an issue. I’m here to help!

Important Information Please Read Carefully – 1st September 2016

Hi Folks

Here’s some important info before the start of the holidays

For those that came on October 2015

I think I’ll give you all more time to get your portfolio in order so we wont have the presentation of the portfolio on those dates. What I would like to propose is for you to work with your supervisors to get your portfolio done and for them to clear it first. So please do that. I need to let you all know that we need to get this done because your portfolio is key to finishing the CT course and also so that your PB will not be affected come March. So please work with your supervisor to get the portfolio done.

For those who came AFTER October 2015

Please take note that you need to do the”Using Technology Class for Teaching and Learning” come September 13th. Having said that. Some of you have told me that you are down for the Affective Educator classes. So this is what we will do. We will do it ONLINE. By the end of this week, I will be sending you detailed instructions on what you need to do. If you dont get anything from me by Fri, please email me.
