The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

Instructions for Participation for Peetz School educators:


You will need to sign up for the Educators PLN before you are able to respond or post.

There is a video embedded on the page called Changing Education Paradigms. It is a speech given by Sir Ken Robinson and animated. Please watch the video and respond to the discussion questions presented.

I will be in the small lab first thing in the morning to discuss how to access the site and to sign up, post discussion topics and reply to discussions already there.

Activities:
There are 3 questions in the discussion forum questions that you need to respond to on Friday 2/18, but your participation in the discussion is encourage to extend beyond our professional development day.
1. Reflect on the ideas presented on the history of our educational system…
a. Please respond to the question yourself. Ask questions, rebut what is stated, add to it with additional information, links, content, supporting documentation, but contribute.
b. Read and respond to others comments within this discussion thread throughout the day and later in the week.
2. Agree: Pick a significant statement that Sir Ken Robinson makes in the speech..
a. Respond to the topic
b. Respond to 2-3 others at a minimum
3. Disagree: Sir Ken Robinson provides lots of problems…
a. Respond to the topic

Please feel free to add your own additional discussion topics and to browse and contribute to those made by others.

This discussion forum is open to the world and others will be invited to participate, so please welcome them and encourage your other colleagues to join in by forwarding this message to them. (Tweet it, Facebook it, Email it)

Benefits of this type of discussion:
Everyone has a voice
You get to think about your response
We can engage a worldwide audience
It can be an ongoing conversation and not one that ends at the allotted time
Provide additional resources to help educate others and expand horizons
Discussions are recorded and saved instead of forgotten and lost
You can participate in the discussion on your own time schedule (home, work, dr. office waiting room)
This may be how we provide some summer professional development
