Thank you for joining us for another #whatisschool chat. I love these interactions, they inspire my learning.
I have been lucky enough to have been in Dubai and Malaysia speaking this week. I spoke to several people about professional learning networks and twitter. #whatisschool came up in several conversations and I constantly talked about how personalizing learning in the way that we do on Twitter helps me learn what I want, when I want and how I want. I learn more from you (my PLN) than any other professional development session I am involved in. Thank you for inspiring me and hundreds of other educators by chatting here every week.
This week we talked about fostering a growth mindset and had the inspiration of Adam Brown to kick start us in our discussions. Thank you, Adam for leading us during today’s chat!
The #whatisschool community showed their passion for learning today and their passion for the teaching profession by sharing their ideas and experiences about growth mindsets! This archive is packed full of incredible ideas, practical uses, and resources guaranteed to inspire you, so share with your colleagues.
