Evolving & Networking

September 17, 2012 Leave a comment

For me, I think that we have evolved as a profession and as a group of education professionals.  We know more about how students learn and how to present content in ways that result in the use of critical thinking, explanation and deduction by the students.  (And, we are not good about talking about that either – but that is a different issue)

While I get some inspiration from books, blogs and reading; I gain the most when I am in a network of other educators talking about these issues.  Some kind of format helps, but too often I just don’t get enough time to think through things, explore new ideas and then practice them as in PD or with my students and then provide feedback.
