This chapter should have really gotten you thinking about your own personal learning. As teachers, do you see any of the "8 things to look for in today's classroom" in your personal/professional learning? Those of you who are school or district leaders, how can you implement some of these elements in the professional development opportunities you're offering to your teachers/learners? The last element discussed was Connected Learning and George reiterated the importance of using Twitter and hashtags to make connections. Don't forget to connect with thousands of Indiana educators (and even many outside of the state) by using the hashtag #INeLearn.
Next week we will read and discuss chapters 13 and 14 and finish the book. I know you will all be on spring break at some point in the next 3 weeks. Don't forget that if you want 12 PGPs and to be eligible to win the professional development grant, you have to comment in all 10 weeks' discussions by midnight Eastern Friday, April 8th.
