Boot Camp Project Team Protocol
The role of the participant is to:
Participate in activities and conversations.
Encourage the sharing of knowledge and honor the experience of all
Ask for further clarification when needed.
Fully engage in the 21 century learning experience.
Stay fully engaged in the experience.
Be a careful listener of your colleagues.
Be aware of your body language; the speaker should know that you are listening
Observe, analyze, and summarize.
Reflect with intention.
Build an environment of trust among your colleagues.
Communicate with simplicity, avoiding the use of technical terms and complicated vocabulary that may be specific to district initiatives.
If you do use technical terminology or acronyms, for example RTII, make sure everyone knows that term
Analyze information quickly and, when necessary, re-focus the topic or ask a question.
Involve your colleagues in the discussion and re-direct the conversation when someone dominates the discussion.
Learn from each other.
Refrain from dominating the discussion.
Use open-ended questions to encourage deeper thinking.
Redirect discussion in order to avoid repeating previously discussed
Ask for clarification if the prompt or question is not clear.
Understand that the facilitators do not have all the answers, but they will do their best to find the answers.
When working on a team:
Consider your strengths and divide the work appropriately.
Use group roles: timekeeper, recorder, discussion leader, tech support, reporter
End promptly, as there is usually something following each session.
Working on a team with technology at the ready:
There will be times when all participants are participating in hands-on activities with computers.
Working with computers is a 21 century learning strategy; presenters and facilitators will not be offended when participants are engaged with technology in a way that further enriches their 21 century learning experience.
Work together – if you have a technical skill that others don’t have, share your expertise.
Use your collaborative problem solving skills.
Stay on task.
Back Channel – Any back channel, whether formal or informal, should be a real-time online discussion that furthers your learning. Extend your learning by commenting on the session, responding to what is happening, and enriching the session by adding related links. A back channel is a great opportunity to share learning and ask questions.
Teach newbies how to use the back channel.
For those who are not part of the conversation, please share key points from the back channel with all.
Invite all to join.
Remember that backchannels are public.
There are expectations: Be professional; be positive. Negativity does not have a place here…
If you use Twitter, use the Twitter hashtag — #cffbc. If you don’t know what that means, ask someone who does!
