The personal learning network for educators

We, as educators, should plan and supply more materials relating to games,literature...etc for…

Such has been the case with social media. In less than a decade, social media has come to impact the planet’s population, businesses, groups and governments: how we work, learn, lead and live. It is not surprising that the industry’s trade association, The Social Media Club (SMC), has grown to over 200 chapters and 300,000 members in the past five years. Nor is it surprising that relationships between the…Continue

Take a look at your outgoing email. Most people have an automatic signature that places your name and basic contact information at the end of every email.

I don't care what you call your Reading group, they know. You can come up with the cutest, funniest, adorable names you'd like, they know. In my building, our students are divided into the Red, Blue, and Green groups, and they know. How could they not know? When the Red students have to leave the room every day to meet with the interventionist, what do you think the other kids are thinking? When the Green group's homework is different from the Blue and Red group, they know. When the Red…Continue

These are all considered by many to be…Continue

I've been reading Learning from Lincoln: Leadership Practices for School Success by Harvey Alvy and Pam Robbins. I highly recommend it because the authors do a masterful job of examinig Lincoln's leadership styles and applying modern leadership models to his practices. If you're a Lincoln fan, this book is a "must read."
Two of my favorite passages from the book are listed below in which the authors cite work by R. Ackerman and P. Maslin-Ostrowski, and by Jim Collins:…

For generations, the Great British public have become used to the stereotypical headteacher and have revered them as being strong, committed, principled and leading from the front often taking no prisoners.
I can't help but think that headship must have been a lonely place in those days. It still can be remote but the days of heads…Continue

I make it a habit each summer to try new things and to put myself in situations in which I will inevitably grow as an educator. This summer has been amazing! I decided to create my first blog, Brain Vibe For Educators, and to enter the “twittersphere.” I believe I have personally grown more in two months than possibly in the last two years thanks to my PLN.…

I was taking part in a phone conference a while back, a rather dull one, when one of the elementary school principals in the room furtively motioned for me to take a look at one of her young teachers who was also participating in the phone conference. I casually looked over in the teacher’s direction (who I’ll call Jessica because there seem to be so many young Jessica’s out there!), and I saw that she was sitting in her chair, her brightly colored phone in her…Continue
