November 2018: When Teachers Lead Their Own Learning

A Relevant Issue

I want to express my appreciation of the Nov. 2018 issue of Educational Leadership. I teach graduate courses in teacher professional learning, coaching, and collaboration, and I find article after article in this issue address important matters related to these topics and to concerns of the grad students, who are all practicing teachers. I will take my copy to my classes, both to share with students and to use as an encouragement that they join ASCD.

I have really enjoyed the articles in this month's issue. Helps me confirm what I have been thinking about teacher PD and gives me ideas on how to move things forward. Thank you!!

The Influence of Twitter

[In "Secrets of the Edu-Twitter Influencers" by Tara Laskowski,] most spoke about the rich possibilities associated with Twitter, however I feel the same benefits can be gained beyond [social media]. One thing that I found interesting was how much time people spend. It makes me think that being a "thought leader" is something that needs to be maintained.

Making Video Reflection Go Viral

Great article, "Spreading the Practice of Video Reflection," from Steven Lamkin and Todd Nesloney. I love to see teachers' faces when you ask them to do a Flipgrid video—like they just got the worst middle school truth or dare ever. It's definitely about building a culture where teachers are comfortable reflecting in video format.

When We Ask "What If?"

"Learning Together, Learning on Their Own" by Allison Rodman is a tremendous example of how to inspire on both practical and pedagogically expansive levels. These WHAT IFs have me believing that we can raise our collective ceilings by inviting our colleagues into our own growth. Inspiring stuff.
