I’m finally coming down from my #ISTE2015 high. What an amazing experience. I learned so much, met incredible people and was inspired beyond belief. This was so much more than a conference about technology...it was about people. People willing to do whatever it takes for kids. There was a common thread with the interactions that I had throughout the conference…Together, We Can!
Together, we can share best practice to help make a difference in the lives of our students.
Together, we can connect and support each other as educators.
Together, we can reflect and inspire new ideas to support the varied needs of our students.
Together, we can relax, recharge and have fun. This is important and often forgotten in the busy lives of educators.
Together, we truly can change the world and inspire this thinking in our students.
This is what it is all about. When we talk global education, to me that means we are all working for the same team, the same school. The children of the world are ALL our students and positive change can only happen when we truly work together.
So what will I do to make this happen? I’ll continue to connect with my amazing PLN to learn, share and collaborate. I will help others that may feel isolated develop a PLN of their own. I will lift up my colleagues and be a fountain and not a drain. I will push myself to take risks and continue to learn and grow daily. I will take time to relax and recharge so I can be my best self.
And most importantly to me, I will work to drown out the voices of the critics of our great profession by showcasing the AMAZING that happens every single day in our classrooms and learning communities. So many people truly have no idea what goes on in schools....together, we can change this by making it visible. I challenge anyone reading this to do the same.
Together, we truly CAN make all of this a reality! Let's do this!
