Making Time vs Finding Time

A Principal's Reflections

First and foremost, make the time to learn, grown, and get better as opposed to finding the time. There is nothing more important to an educator, outside of working with kids, than professional learning. Through social media a Personal Learning Network (PLN) provides a great antidote to the age-old time excuse. You can now learn anywhere, with anyone, at anytime you want for free.

The Professional Learning Sweet Spot

A Principal's Reflections

For the better part of my educational career, I always referred to any type of learning to assist me as a teacher or administrator as professional development (PD). For the most part, this consisted of attending mandatory district “PD” days, professional learning communities (PLC)’s or approved off-site experiences such as conferences, workshops, or webinars. Through the use of social media, I realized that I didn’t really need to be “developed.”

As social media embracement was not even a blip on the radar at this time, these teacher leaders were quite skeptical about the alleged benefits I described. Undeterred, I continued to talk about the concept of a Personal Learning Network (PLN) and what it had done for my professional growth. Best of all, at least in my mind, was the newfound ability to learn anytime, from anywhere, with anyone in the world for free. It become all about the learning.

Uncommon Learning

A Principal's Reflections

It is not that our students are actually learning differently per se, but the environment in which they are learning is dramatically different. They have embraced this digital world as it provides consistent relevance and meaning through an array of interactive experiences. If students cannot learn the way we now teach or in the conditions that are prevalent, maybe we need to teach the way they learn and create a school environment that more closely aligns with their world.
