Sometimes you need an outsider to point out of the obvious.
As part of my #unleashinglearning workshop conversation naturally turned to the nitty gritty of making things work.
Rather than just tell the audience I immediately bought up my class’s flickr account and student blogs to share what we’ve been doing right down on a teacher-to-teacher level.
I thought nothing of it until I saw this tweet and realised this wasn’t the default.
- Members of my workshop could see what the class was up to, browsing the learning experiences and children’s reactions to it.
- I can keep in contact with my class and parents while overseas.
- PD is no longer a mystery thing that teachers ‘do.’ I share my learning as it happens.
- There is a chance for further collaboration as other classes see the post
