WOW! We had our first meet and greet of our PLN for educators in my county. It was fabulous! We had 14 strong educators there that truly love technology and want to use it more in their classroom. The ideas were flying. And the sharing was unbelievable. These teachers that have never met were sharing and asking for more information from the other teachers. It was so exciting!
We had a very diverse group from Kindergarten teachers to High School teachers to 2 Technology Facilitators. I enjoyed being about to guide the discussion, but not direct it. Everyone seemed so comfortable with one another.
One of the requests was that we all get together during the summer for a week (yes, they wanted a week!) to ‘play’ and learn from each other in a computer lab. Now remember, this is without pay and without credit. Can you imagine? I was shocked! These are truly great people!
We did set another date for a meeting to talk and share more. Hopefully, our group will grow and we can meet once a quarter next year.
I can’t wait to see what else this group does!
Until next time ~ Danita
