Our Fuse MA Fellowship with the Highlander Institute kicked off the 2020-2021 school year on September 24th. Program Manager Meg Smallidge & Fuse MA Coordinator Ken Toomey led Fellows through small group check-ins around their independent projects. The second half of the meeting featured a cross-collaborative scavenger hunt and district-specific breakout rooms with pilot teachers and school/district administrators from the Cohort 2 partner districts. Educators discussed various challenges they’re facing as they navigate back-to-school scenarios and shared ideas and strategies that have been working well for teachers, students, and families. Thank you to all Fellows and Fuse MA community members who were able to attend! Check out the fall Fuse MA schedule here: https://tec-coop.org/fusema/fuse-ma-fall-2020/
Too often, the best ideas and strategies for personalization can get stuck behind the closed doors of classrooms, schools, or districts.
