TeachLivE at UCF Gets a Shout Out for Innovation

TeachLivE at UCF was included in the INNOVATIONS INVENTORY by AACTE as an innovative practice.

From their website:
The Innovations Inventory is an online database highlighting members’ innovative practices that provide educator candidates a competitive edge in the field. Members are invited to submit examples of unique or new approaches to educator preparation that address issues of student learning, preparation program advancement, or educator workforce needs and that show evidence of positive impact on those areas. Reviewed submissions are included in a directory, and exemplary programs are highlighted periodically on the web page, in publications, and through several other outlets.

TeachLivE at Winter Park High School

Teachers at Winter Park High School in Winter Park, Florida are learning from avatars!  Yesterday marked the first day that TeachLivE at UCF partnered directly with a school to provide professional learning to teachers.  The results were amazing - after only one 10 minute session, teachers doubled their student talk time and higher order questions.

Great work being done by passionate teachers at Winter Park High School, thanks to Principal Tim Smith and Literacy/Instructional Coach Elizabeth McClure!
