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 zone...so 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 red...so 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.

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More
