Feed thyself!

November 14, 2012 · No Comments · integration

Educators are provided countless ways to receive professional development.  Everyone including  TRTs, content area specialists, and building level personnel are offering training opportunities.  Things are offered before, during, and after school, during the summer, online,  in whole group, small group and 1:1 settings.  There is no shortage when it comes to opportunties to learn something new.  To take that to an even greater level requires the individual to take charge of their own learning and explore new avenues to learn.  How do you do that?  There are so many ways!  Making connections with other educators in various online environments can help you grow and develop in so many ways.   These days, so many educators are willing to connect and share resources, ideas, plans and more.   With RSS feed, blogs, wikis, Nings, listserves, social networking sites and other web 2.0 tools and resources you have everything you need to feed thyself.  It’s like an IV that constantly provides the food to sustain you.  In fact, the more you get into it, the more you realize that it can start like a trickle and very rapidly grow into a gushing flood.  Educators that develop a Personal Learning Network quickly find new ways to develop professionally, which ultimately results in better teaching and learning.  So… the question beckons….  How do you feed yourself?
