If you are (or will be) a teacher in a 1-to-1 or BYOD classroom - congratulations on adding nearly infinite resources to your repertoire! Just about everything you can imagine is available to you and your students for selecting and curating. Your students have (or will have) at their fingertips myriad opportunities for writing, researching, publishing, presenting and developing higher order critical thinking skills. The walls of your classroom can disappear as you bring in experts, connect with others around the world, and contribute to the local and world community.
One important thing to consider is expanding your own PLN – Professional Learning Network – by connecting and collaborating with other teachers taking the 1-to-1 path along with you. This Microsoft Partners in Learning network is a great start so feel empowered to mine it, follow others, contribute, share and become a co-learner. Smart, passionate educators have kindly provided wisdom to me for years and many are right here ready to share wisdom and learn from you as well.
The ideas, resources and suggestions for my posts will be specific and practical so you can take the idea, adapt it as needed, and use it for your students and your classes. And I’ll be very happy to hear your ideas and suggestions as I want to be a co-learner and reap the benefits of your wisdom and experience. Please comment below on what you’d like to discuss. And take advantage of a free limited giveway of my book by contacting Kevin Hoang at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
