In the Information Age, we strive to serve a broader purpose, to learn and share, to give back to our community. How might we give and take, consume and produce? As learners, we seek to find and offer our voice, to reflect, and to embrace learning out loud.
What if our goals include sharing our in process thinking and learning? How might we level up in writing, reflection, and public presence?
- Kathy Bruyn: Student Portfolios: It’s all worth it!
If you’re wondering if it’s worth the time and energy you put into helping students create online portfolios of their work each year, I have your answer.
- Chari Nickerson: #TBT.Pickle.Trees
I’m so proud to have been there to hear and learn alongside my students.
- Marsha Harris: Coding for Communication Collaboration Critical Thinking and Creativity
When students learn to code, they learn to think analytically, problem solve, and practice public speaking skills. They begin to think like inventors, entrepreneurs, and creators.
- Jill Gough: Engaging Every Learner #AskDontTell
What if we offered the opportunity for every child to show what they know instead of having them raise their hands and wait for the chance to respond? Here’s what that looks like in practice.
- Mary Jacob Harris: Taking Risks to Flourish
While Michelle and I constantly remind students they need to take risks to grow and that making mistakes is okay, I thought it was time to model risk taking.
- Justin Cahill: The Art of Losing
Let’s model gracious behavior both in victory and defeat. Following a tough loss, the last thing our guys want to do is dwell on it. Losing is not the end of the world. A positive character is what will make our budding sons into great men. That is priceless.
- Samantha Steinberg: When Do You Abandon A Book?
Although a week ago I was ready to set this book aside for another time, I’m actually glad I stuck with it for just a little longer. Halfway through the book, it got very exciting, and I’m now fully engrossed.
Derek Sivers says it well:
Tell your story. Tell our story.
Learn… and share.
