Share Your Story. Win an iPad Mini.

Three years ago, FIP Your School Ohio launched with the goal of advancing the use of research-based formative instructional practices across the state. We want to hear specific stories involving your students or your personal practice. How has FIP impacted the way you teach, learn, and grow? What impact have formative instructional practices had on the students that step into your classroom?

On June 16th, we will be setting up a FIP Video Lounge at the Ohio Educators Connect for Success Conference in Columbus, Ohio. When you visit the video lounge, you’ll have the opportunity to share your FIP story on camera. This is your chance to tell your story, share your experiences, and celebrate your successes! We will also be giving an iPad Mini to one lucky educator that stops by the FIP Video Lounge.

The Ohio Educators Connect for Success conference takes place on June 16-17, including over 75 learning sessions. You can register online here.

What to Expect: We want you to hear your FIP story, but we won’t keep you from the conference experience. The FIP Video Lounge will be open from 1:00PM – 4:00PM and each filming session will last approximately five minutes.

To share your story, all you have to do is answer these question prompts:

Update: Tell us about your experience with FIP

  • How did you get started?
  • Initial impressions vs. Reality?
  • How are you using FIP in your classroom?

Impact: How are you seeing your students benefit from FIP?

  • Tell us a story, share about a specific student or occasion.

Moving Forward: What’s Next for Your Practice?

  • What’s your next personal growth opportunity?
  • How will you continue to challenge yourself and your peers in using FIP?

What to Wear:

Don’t be afraid to be on camera! We’ll make sure our production team captures your best side, with professional lighting and equipment. Come to the conference dressed to impress; we’ll take care of the rest. We recommend wearing flat colors and simple textures with minimal logos or brand marks as possible. School apparel or logos are acceptable.

Where to Go

We will be capturing stories and collecting submissions on Monday afternoon, starting at 1:00PM and going through the afternoon. You will find us in Clark located nearby the escalator on the second floor, just steps away from many of the sessions you will be attending that afternoon. One of our staff members will be at a table outside the room to answer questions, prepare you for the brief video interview, and enter you in the iPad Mini raffle.

You can share your FIP Story now using #OHFIP on your favorite social media platform, or by commenting below.
