2)   Breakout EDU presentation with Adam Bellow

*Opportunity to meet Adam and have him be a guest speaker in a future PLC contributes to what I planned to take away from the conference to benefit the group and my job. Building professional relationships with key stakeholders is important.

“You have great taste you can do creative work.”

“To do great work you must do volume of work.   Eventually you will be as good as your ambitions.”
“Secret engines of productivity 5 min of ambition, 5 minutes of feeling horrible.”

3 ½)  Google Expedition, Canvas, Murul collage art wall.

*Below are potential ideas and software research may benefit Kamehameha Schools. I will be looking into google expeditions further as a ice breaking tool. Also the art collage mural as a possible attraction in the next KS educational technology conference.

Performance Management in Success Factors

Performance Management in Success Factors with Alt Kagesa September 9th, 2014
Alt Kagesa draws from the everyday and pop culture to bring life to the process and considerations needed to write clear and measurable goals. An example was a funny story from his life about the right tool for the job. You'll have to take the workshop to hear the story, but the lesson was, "Don’t use a wrench when you need a hammer." It’s often not the tool's fault it’s just not being used the way it was designed.  A goal is only useful it is has clear meaning and can gives guidance on ways to reach it.  This approach to goal writing has come to be know as SMARTgoal setting.  
A guide for writing quality SMART Goals (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time limited) is to use “2BYWHEN“.  It’s simple to remember and easy to use, but takes practice to master so be patient and get feedback.  
Here is an  example:

Online Teaching Conference 2017: Best Practices and Takeaways

Best Practices  In June of 2017, I attended the Online Teaching Conference (OTC) in Anaheim, California. Interestingly enough, this conference was originally catered to CCC educators, staff, and/or administration, being that there are over 100 community colleges in the state of California. 
 However, over the years, other external people have heard about the conference and wanted to learn from such a successfully school system, one of the largest community college systems in the nation as a matter of fact! The California Community College (CCC) System really does a great job of collaboration and forming a strong online community. They created a site called the Professional Learning Network (PLN) that all CCC faculty can access and collaborate on.

This reminds me of our monthly Professional Learning Community (PLC) as we utilize this time to learn from each other as well as share our knowledge with others who have interest. It would be great if we could form some type of resource site…
