My 25% PD

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

This week my Professional Development came in the way of conversations. Conversations in person, via e-mail, and through the new course I’m running on Moodle. 6 Teachers taking the course this time bring the number of teachers now using Moodle at our school to 33 with 600 students registered. 0-600 students using an online tool in less then a year…not a bad start!

I was reminded through out the week about the power of conversations and how conversations have the power to change your thinking, to alter your perspective, and to allow you to consider another’s point of view.

I would like to point to the one blog where I did spend the majority of my week. Remote Access was my blog this week. Clarence Fisher had some great reflections about things happening in his classroom and I found every post this past week pulling me in and making me want to read more.

I calculate this weeks PD time at around 400 minutes. 125 minutes off the 25% mark, but probably 350 more minutes then most educators.

Not sure how much time I’ll get for PD next week. Well professional PD that is, as my learning will turn to the NCAA tournament and winning the pool here at school.

I started blogging in 2005 and found it such a powerful way to reflect and share my thinking about technology, this generation, and how we prepare students for their future not our past.
