The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

I was meeting on Friday with Andrea Hernandez, our Director of Teaching & Learning (formally "21st Century Learning" - we are trying to message that "21st Century Learning" is synonymous with "Teaching & Learning"), who chided me for not role modeling what was expected of all our faculty.  Namely, where was my evidence for my own summer learning!

I blogged, here, about our faculty's commitment to summer learning.  I blogged, here, about my own.  Silvia Tolisano, our 21st Century Learning Consultant (yes, I recognize the conflict with the above parenthesis; it is an imperfect world we live in!) wrote an amazing blog post on the edJEWcon website presenting a mosaic of our entire faculty's summer learning.  You can click on it, here, and I have insisted it move to the front of the website.  It is a great post.

There is great diversity in how teachers presented evidence of their student learning.  One methodology that inspired me, pushes me a bit outside my comfort it is probably a good one for me to experiment with - vlogging.  It sounds simple, instead of sitting at my desk, writing, writing, writing and writing, I can simply look into the camera and speak.  But when the light goes do I!  Not so easy...and you'll be able to tell when you watch it.  But I did try!  [Another problem...I've become so accustomed to hyperlinking, that each time I mentioned a name, I mentally paused to hyperlink!]

[NOTE: I apologize if watching me rock back and forth in my chair made anyone seasick!]

Thanks for suffering through my first (and possibly last!) vlog post.
