Pause to Reflect…
In the Connected Educator’s Book Club, for Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach’s The Connected Educator, we are discussing our personal and shared visions of connected learners. We discussed these questions:
???What are our guiding principles for how we should operate and work together?
???Why do we exist?
???What do we want to create?
???What should school look like to support the needs of today’s learners?
We created our personal visions with images and words that reflected our personalities, which you can view here. To answer those questions, I created the image above and a poem to gather elements of a connected learner together:
A Vision as a Connected Learner
by collegial acceptance and respect
in a transparent dialogue
of continual learning,
we educators discover
with our students
how to live,
and globally connected collaboratives,
and through these, we pave the paths
to personal, productive, and peaceful futures.
a meeting point,
a way forward
from a place we are
to the place we dream
and virtual spaces,
with access by all
to the ideas, tools, and conversations
that are also ongoing
in the connected points
of the global school
to live learning.
Play to Learn…
So my goal is to continue sharing and connecting, with my PLN and students to grow and learn together, living learning as we
converse with each other for ideas
create demonstrations of our ideas together and independently
communicate the ideas clearly
contribute to the ideas of others
consider others’ and our ideas to
cooperate towards a goal or
collaborate to solve an issue or create a service or product, then
curate our efforts for others to consider.
These authentic choices live in learning, more than the standards, and create digital and real citizens for our future.
What is your vision?
