Three Year Professional Development Plan
Annual Review and Reflection Form (Revise questions as needed to suit your goal/area of inquiry)
What did I learn?
I continue to learn, collaborate and teach concepts which engage students in creative thought and reflectivity.
Collaborating with colleagues and students has provided opportunities for reflective thought and understanding of
best practice for our learning community. I will continue to challenge myself to learn, manipulate and understand
the every changing and challenging technology has become a tool to showcase student thought, creative ingenuity
and effort.



How have I used what I learned? I have changed or enhanced my personal responses to be more open ended. This
engages student responses to be more reflective thus challenging them to continue and advance their personal
thoughts while building, manipulating and experimenting with artistic mediums and creative effort. I have
continued to challenge my teaching of creative thought to include technology; continually using technology to
showcase student work in our learning community.



How have the changes I made impacted students? I have really been focused on strengthening student self-worth
and challenging their artistic effort and creative thought. Showcasing student effort through the use of
technology, art shows, art displays and linking the artistic response with music continues to link the importance of
creative thought throughout our community.



What are my next steps? I would like to continue linking art with technology. Using technology as a tool will link
and challenge many students into the new millennium. I will continue to seek out opportunities which will make
learning connections and facilitate collaboration with peers and students.
