Keep the Conversation Going

Whether you have attended a recent professional development opportunity provided by your school or school district or have attended a national conference, you need to keep the conversation going. Here are a few suggestions to help keep the high energy needed at this time of year.

  • Stay connected.  Use social media to find others who share your passion.  Use Twitter and add folks to create a PLN, personal learning network.  Make a commitment to check your account at least once a day.  In just a few moments, you may be able to discover a new strategy or an idea spoken will spark an idea of your own.
  • Share information you gained through your attendance with others.  Whether you discuss things with the teacher next door or post to an online forum, you are helping to share what you have heard, read, or seen.
  • Be a leader at your school. Be positive about change and the achievement it can bring.  Share your passion, your dedication and you can inspire others to do the same.
