Wiggio Tutorials

 

The most effective professional learning communities hold fast to several key practices. They identify essential outcomes with one another. They study instructional practices together. They develop common assessments and reflect on student learning data together. All of these behaviors should be expected of every professional learning team, including those who join together in electronic spaces.

 

While there are dozens of digital tools that can be used to support these kinds of behaviors, one of the best is Wiggio. What makes Wiggio unique is that it enables several different kinds of interactions between members of collaborative groups. Let’s take a closer look at Wiggio.

While not directly connected to the idea of using digital tools to support learning teams, the following four videos may be interesting to participants in Bill Ferriter's summer sessions on singletons in professional learning communities.  They feature Dr. Jeffry Maher of the St. Mary's Public Schools in Maryland speaking about the steps that his district takes to structure professional learning for every district.
