It’s New Year’s…Yeah, But…

CUE

If we want to be innovators in education, we must be risk takers at the core. This is how things are done, it’s worked in the past, this is how they learned. But… When asked what they learned, both students replied: “We learned to look up a picture, copy it and label.” Because our students should be thinking, learning, understanding and creating.

Happy Connected Educator Month

Kleinspiration

When I began my teaching career a few short years ago, I never would have imagined having such an expansive network of people that I consider colleagues and friends. This is why I''m so happy to have the liberty to connect with the people I decide to include in my network, create projects that are of interest to me, and write posts that I determine are worthy of writing. Well, that comment added a few more friends in our PLN, personal learning network, to the conversation.

Autonomy Breeds Change

A Principal's Reflections

They desperately sought time during the school day to engage in professional growth opportunities, learn how to integrate Web 2.0 tools, and develop their own Personal Learning Networks (PLN’s). The inspiration for this idea came from Google’s 80/20 Innovation Model where engineers are encouraged to take 20 percent of their time to work on something company-related that interests them personally. A great deal was learned after I reflected on year one of the PGP.
