I used this video to start a staff meeting this school year when all my teachers were given new iPads. It was a great introduction to the meeting.
My message to go along with this video is that I know we have new iPads and technology and I want everyone to know that it's okay to ask questions...even if your question feels as silly as when the man asks how to open the book! We need to make sure they know it is safe to ask questions. Use a little humor this year to help get a stressful meeting started. A simple video can change the outcome of any meeting.
You might could also use this video to point out that not all the students coming into their rooms will know everything they should know. We all have students on different levels of learning.
If you have a great video, share it with me.
