This year, my 7th grade science team and I were accepted into a program called Equip Academy, which awarded us 15 classroom laptops per teacher, a 2:1 ratio of students to laptops.
One of the stipulations of our acceptance into the academy, was to allow other teachers to observe us to see how we are implementing the laptops into our lessons. Our program suggested a Pineapple Chart to organize the days where different teachers are available to be observed.
Watch the following video to see how a Pineapple Chart can be used in a school.
The following image is from by Jennifer Gonzalez’s article, How Pineapple Charts Revolutionize Professional Development, this image is an example of what could be posted in a work room or teacher’s lounge to show when and what different teachers are available to be observed. Also check out this article for the Origins of a Pineapple Chart and other real life pineapple chart examples.
The following image will be hung outside of my classroom on days I am available to be observed. Teachers can scan the QR Code, follow the link, or grab a paper form to provide feedback during the observation.
I used Microsoft Forms to collect observation data; A QR code is available under the ‘Share’ Option.
