One of my goals for 2011 is to mentor 100 teachers/educators in using Twitter for CPD, so this group is very timely!  Thanks Lisa!

I'm so grateful for the invitation to join this innovative and inspiring group. I really think that mentoring novice teachers will be the most challenging and empowering experiences through my teaching career. Then I'm looking forward to sharing and collaborating with peers.

Hi Lisa, 

This is the best idea!  If I had had this my first year of teaching, I may not have contemplated suicide (LOL).  What a great way to help new teachers and learn from each other.

I'll do my best to help out however I can!  Thanks for putting the initiative forward!

Hi Lisa,

An excellent idea, congratulations!

Good to be among experts and passionate educators.I do not know how I can help but I will try my best. I am sure I will also learn a lot during our sharing! :)   

Looking forward to collaborating.

Hello All!

To keep the energy going after The Reform Symposium for New Teachers on Sat January 8, 2011...we are gathering passionate committed educators who want to "Pay it Forward" and share their talents and gifts with a new teacher.

We will be asking you to collaborate with us to be a "virtual" mentor or maybe even a f2f mentor to a new teacher who could use your support.

Monthly seminars are planned as well as #ntchats and Vokle.com chats.

Thanks for joining our group to give back to a newbie who will welcome your outreach and support. We look forward to great connections!

Hi Lisa & PLN!

Thanks for the invite. I can certainly try to help with new music teachers or find people who might be of help!

 

Looking forward to learning!

Methods: Tradition vs. Relevance

This morning I read a post from a higher education educator about the negative effects of Tech in lectures. The author was perplexed when he realized a great many students in his lecture hall were paying attention to Facebook, or attending to email during the course of a two-hour lecture. His school chose to ban tech devices from the lecture hall. Additionally, students were required to use nametags, so that the lecturer could address individual students with questions during the lecture. This…See More
