PLN Presentation – Reflection

I wrote last week about some thoughts I have about trying to get staff development credit for teachers who develop and are active in a personal learning network because as Will Richardson wrote about in this post, we try to individualize and personalize learning for our students… why would we not do the same for our teachers.

So, the Teaching and Learning Tuesday I offered after school yesterday focused on the importance of developing a PLN. I shared some info and demonstrated my PLN and then we brainstormed some ideas for staff development documentation and such. There were fourteen of us present and I think we had a decent discussion. Of course, after the presentation there were some things I wish I would have said, but that is always the case. 🙂

This is the presentation I used to help start the discussion.

After talking with the teachers, my next step will be to develop a form of sorts where teachers will “document” what they are doing in their PLN. Once I have it developed, I am going to send it out to the teachers who attended the session so they can offer me some feedback and see if my creation is what they envisioned.

So, hopefully soon, we will be able to incorporate PLN into my school’s options for “official” staff development training. It really makes sense for our campus because we have such varied subjects that we teach and there are not a lot of learning resources in our district for a lot of our specialty teachers… it would be great for them to get “credit” for interacting and learning from professionals in their industry.

I will keep you all updated on our progress.

    I think that most of us are still so overwhelmed with everything that is out there for us to learn that we are often left speechless. I know that is the case for me and is why I couldn’t contribute much at Tuesday’s meeting. But thank you for your presentation. I’ve already expanded my Twitter network and added some of the links you follow to my RSS feed. I’m excited to see so much information on Edutopia’s Spiral Notebook.
