I remain astounded at what my PLN has done for me in the past year. I am most certainly missing the wonderful relationships I developed over the summer through the #clmooc. While I would love to stay active and connected with this brilliant group of colleagues, my students take priority. Creating new methods of content for stronger engagement, developing projects for flipped learning, and reviewing student work (read as proofreading rough drafts, grading essays, tests, projects) leave me precious little time for the hours I need to fully engross myself in personalized PBL via collaboration and shared learning. I hop on and off of Twitter, catching sound bites here and there of what my fellow MOOCers are up to. This is how I learned about the 140 word challenge. Perhaps this is just brief enough for me to commit to and succeed. I hope I remember to post daily amid the other million details I need to recall. I know for certain that my post tomorrow will be about gratitude for all the sharing that has reenergized my classroom. After that? I've no idea. We'll find out together. Care to join me on the journey? I'm happy to have you along.
I am a thinker, an analyzer, a searcher of meaning. These are my musings as I piece together my understanding of the world I inhabit.
