I love learning from and with other educators. It’s almost a condition that I need to seek help for. I was the student who loved college, loved my online learning opportunities for my master’s classes, love conferences, love good PD with our district… I love to learn and improve. This summer, my learning opportunities have been greatly increased. It started with the return of #SJSDEdWeek, WOW so much learning with my fellow colleagues. I left motivated and inspired and grew my PLN from within my own district! Next came ISTE. I didn’t get to attend ISTE, but I did join the #notatiste15 google plus group and Voxer chat. Both Google+ communities and Voxer were new experiences for me. I have a few books to consume this summer, one of them is Ditch That Textbook by @jmattmiller which has a Twitter chat and Voxer group at #DitchBook. I, just tonight, joined the #HackLearning Voxer group. @LauraGilchrist4 created a monster when she added me to the #notatiste15 group. I have become a Voxer junkie, but I love discussing ideas with people inside that medium. It’s July, usually the month I put away my computer and all thoughts of school. This summer I can’t shut my brain off thinking of all the ways I can make learning more relevant to students and help them become learners, not just doers. I can’t wait to share with my students, colleagues, and you as I get to practice some of what I’m learning.
