What a city!
Add in Colleen Cruz(@colleen_cruz), Kate Roberts (@teachkate) and Lindsay Mann (@lindsayman22)
And the first Digital Media and Literacy Institute!
Amazing Learning from afar!
Where do you find your learning?
Do you actively seek out sources? Specific topics? Do you watch for it in your twitter columns and your blog post subscriptions?
My learning this week has included:
1. Sunday’s #NCTEchat on poetry
How are you using poetry in your quest to meet CCSS demands? Poetry fits into ALL ELA standards!
2. “Lessons on Simplicity from the Reading and Writing Project” by Paul Emerich here.
Consider the content as well as the “length to go for PD” (actually part of the inspiration for this post as well as a reminder of my travel to NYC last month for the 88th TCRWP Saturday Reunion). Do we have to travel to Paris ourselves or can we settle for second best and follow along via twitter and blogs?
3. “Writing Process” – Kate Roberts
How are the Analog and Digital processes the same? How are they different? What are the implications for Teachers and Students?
4. Notes from Day One in Paris – Tracey Reed @illywhacker1
How do you define digital literacy and media literacy? Is this how you organize your notes? What new “Ahas” does this generate?
5. #SOL15 blogs today
Just beginning to read for today! Melanie has book reviews and Julieanne is writing about Read Alouds!
AND it’s only TUESDAY!
Where is your learning? Your source of inspiration?
What fuels your lifelong learning?
Check out the writers, readers and teachers who are “slicing” here. Thanks to Stacey, Anna, Beth, Tara, Dana and Betsy at “Two Writing Teachers” for creating a place to share our work. So grateful for this entire community of writers who also read, write and support each other!
