And, my 6 word "memoir" list to start one thinking about 21st century learning:
Change happens, but for the better?
21st century brings new challenges, great!
Rest your curriculum on great standards.
Wash, rinse, repeat. Introduce, revisit, master.
When are busy students productive learners?
Reading for pleasure, a lost art?
Remember why you chose this career?
21st century is here, you ready?
Students moving ahead of us, yikes!
Be the change, make it happen.
Is inquiry encouraged when you teach?
Our latest state conference, OELMA 2009 was a great success! One the the best ways to measure the success of a conference is how much it causes you to reflect on what you currently do, and how you can improve it. I am still thinking, and reflecting, and making a plan to integrate at least one change this week!
