Today we focused on learning to blog and our role as tech mentors in the diffusion of innovation. I was very impressed with how well everybody did creating thier blog. They look fantastic and the reflections are fantastic. I have added links to everyones blog in my sidebar under the title MGM Tech Leaders. Be sure to check them out and leave thought provoking comments.
I forgot to mention during the session that David Warlick, whose ideas on 21st Century Literacy we will be discussing at our next meeting, will be speaking to our District on Thursday, November 5th at the Center for Ed. There is not much room left in his session, so sign up as soon as possible if you have the time available and would like to go. He is a very good presenter and well worth seeing.
Its great to see the grade groups get along so well today. I was impressed with the depth of the conversations and the willingness to help each other. I even heard of a group that was setting up a time to meet for coffee. This is truely what building a network of support is all about. Its easier to be a committed sardine when we know we aren’t alone.
