Last week as part of the CLA webinar series we met up with 5 school leaders who chatted about why being connected provides them with such powerful professional learning.
Here is the Wakelet of the twitter back channel. Why not have a listen to the Webinar on the VLN and join in the conversation by posting your comments and answers to the questions posed to our panellists?
- What does a “connected leader” look like?
- How would you encourage a reluctant teacher/ leader to get connected?
- In your role as a connected leader, what do you do to support/model/advocate/facilitate e-learning?
- What attributes do you think you need most, to make this role successful?
- As ‘time poor” senior leader, “What’s in it for me”
Rather late in the piece because my head is buzzing so this will be a quickie! Just waiting for my breakout to start the morning after the night before! And what a night it was. Ulearn15 put on the razzlemadazzle once again out on the high seas with cutlass wielding pirates, rum tipsy sailors, shimmering, glimmering jellyfish, the “undead” of the Titanic and the crowd favourite “out of the box” thinking Pavarotti. He got my vote and the Twitterati vote – almost trending for the evening!
But this post isn’t about the Gala Dinner. One of the challenges was to find two blogger I admire, take a selfie with them and then write a blog. The first blogger I met as I entered Sky City on Tuesday morning was the MAGICAL Anne Kenneally who amazes me with her passion and excitement. This comes through in her tweets, her FB posts and her blogs. I didn’t buy her a coffee but I did get her safely to the Twitter Dinner!
My other inspiring blogger is actually one of a special groups of people: my fellow #efellows14. Marnel Van der Spuy is such a passionate teacher. Her sheer joy of teaching and learning is infectious and inspiring.
Have a read of their blogs, and connect with them on twitter @annekenn @1mvds. Be inspired!
