This past week was such a great experience. I got to return to one of my favorite conferences- NCTies and share four sessions- a poster session, a workshop, and 2 concurrent sessions. I really enjoyed getting to reconnect with so many of PLN (Professional Learning Network) and get to meet new educators and add to my PLN. This coming week is also busy. I will be attending and presenting two sessions at KySTE23 for the first time and at Spring CUE (virtually). The month of March is definitely a busy one for me. In addition to 2 in person conferences and one virtual one, I will be doing an Educator Alexander webinar on March 25th to conclude the month. I would love to connect with you at any of these opportunities.
Reviewing what are the ABCs of Transforming Learning are-
Two weeks ago, I shared a blog post called M= Maximize Student Engagement Using Audio and Video Tools. So many times, we try to engage our students using something that what we have always used. That could include completing a worksheet, making a poster, or countless other tasks. But doing so doesn't take into account the world that our students live in. They live in a world where they constantly engage with both audio and video content. We can teach like we always have or we can pivot and use our students' natural curiosity where it comes to digital content to maximize their engagement.
This week, we will focus on N = Never Stop Learning. During a month where I am engaging in so many learning opportunities- this was the perfect focus for N. As educators, we need to be lifelong learners, but with so much on educators' plates right now- that can seem like the one thing that gets left off of our to do list. But as educators, it is essential that we do engage in the pursuit of learning- our students deserve it and so do we.
