I have decided to embrace the world of Twitter olwen@notjustup2u Actually I signed up for Twitter a couple of years back but really didn't take the time to connect. It was one of those 'This looks interesting' moments that had no follow through. My PYP co-ordinator is a huge tweeter and was always talking about it so I finally decided to start exploring.
The realisation that I was a very small fish in a massive pond took me back to going from primary school to high school. That feeling of ' will I ever find my way' and 'every one else gets this - and I don't' struck home to me really quickly.
I am an IBPYP teacher and am a huge advocate of inquiry based learning. So time came to step up and be an inquirer . . . learning never ends - I am now a few months into my active Twitter life and I am amazed at the opportunities for Professional Development, conversations across the world with like minded educators who challenge the boundaries and ask questions to encourage thought about what is possible.
Having a PLN that is global is amazing. I find myself sitting in Vientiane, LaosPDR at 8.15am on Saturday morning taking to someone in Florida and Northern Canada about the possibilities for connecting learners in our respective schools. So coffee finished, chat finished and the weekend has just started, feeling inspired and connected, like I said 'Learning is contagious!'
Teaching in an IBPYP school; interests: student agency, technology integration, growth mindset & the continuous cycle of improvement that is the world of education, learning and being!
