I have gotten a lot, and I mean A LOT out of my PLN this year. They have been there to bounce ideas off of, as well as to just listen when I am having a rough time or motivate me and get me re-focused on the task at hand. It has helped make my year a successful one.
This past week, Twitter has made an even bigger impact on me. I guess I shouldn’t say Twitter but rather the connections I have made through it. Our team is planning a staff development, and one of the focuses we are looking at included innovative educational topics and those at the forefront of them. We took to Twitter asking for some help. We wanted to do some informal interviews with some of the educational leaders. The response back has been amazing. We are scheduling Google Hang-outs and Skype calls with Tweeps all over the country. People are giving up their time to help our teachers become even better at what they do.
I cannot wait to see how this turns out…and no matter how many times I say it I know those helping us will not understand how grateful I am that they are there to help make our teachers stronger. Thank you to all of you that have agreed to help!
