#Digisafety Tweetchat on Wednesday, February 5, 2014, 8:00-9:00 p.m., EST, #DLDay: @NAESP and @SandraTrach co-moderate!

On Wednesday, February 5, 2014 from 8:00-9:00 p.m. EST, @NAESP will host its first-ever Tweetchat and I am excited to co-moderate this important and timely topic! February 5 is Digital Learning Day, a day of increasing importance, as we aim to help students thrive as digital citizens and engage in safe digital practices. I hope you will join @NAESP and me for this important conversation on youth and their digital safety.


How do you help students learn using the vast opportunities of the internet, while keeping them safe online? At school? At home? While students are on their own? Let's share our wisdom, insights, ideas and experience to help all of our students grow and succeed in a 21st century learning environment.

Unconferences! Changing the Way We Facilitate Professional Learning

Thank you to #NAESP16 for allowing me to share Unconferences! Changing the Way We Facilitate Professional Learning. I am inspired by the passion and energy at #NAESP16, and hope you find unconferences to be practical to your leadership and learning. You can find the PowerPoint presentation here and PDF handouts here. Attendees can also download the presentation from the NAESP16 app.

Three core goals of the presentation:
Learn why an unconference is supportive to professional learningReview best practice research on professional learningDesign an unconference in your school to promote adult learning, student growth and positive morale Over my years as a principal, it took me many attempts to design the "just right" professional learning sessions for our rapidly growing and dynamically talented staff. In fact, I'll admit that no matter how hard I tried, no "one" professional learning fit everyone's needs. I wanted to change that somehow.

How to Get Valuable Feedback

There is no question that educational leaders today deal with a relentless stream of competing demands, requiring them to work at a rapid pace, shifting quickly from one task to another. Often the survival cry of “let’s get it done” is overheard from school leaders as they zigzag between incidental needs and project deadlines. As a result, sometimes school leaders hesitate to stop and seek feedback on the issues that surround them. Some leaders may feel that gathering feedback slows down the pace or creates unnecessary obstacles that could be avoided. Under constant pressure and accountability to be both effective and efficient, it’s easy to see why school leaders can be tempted to skip over the feedback process. But when they do so, they risk the opportunity to launch the best ideas, build quality stakeholder and cultural investment, and make the strongest decisions they can.

#EstabrookSchool Students Skype WBUR "The Animalist"

I'm so proud of our ELL students at #EstabrookSchool and their project-based learning!

Our students conducted research and developed questions about their favorite animals and went right to an expert.  Using Skype, students spoke with WBUR's "The Animalist."




You can see the article, student letters and illustrations here.

What incredible researchers, interviewers, illustrators and writers they are.  I'm so proud!
