Today was a rich Twitter day -- lots of things to explore, but I'm just going to share one, a blog post from Dean Shareski, entitled "Teachers Who Share
." I think transparency of practice, a willingness to be open, to take calculated risks, to share process and product, struggles as well as successes, to question and reflect "out loud," may be the most important aspect of this "networked learning" we're learning to do. I benefit so much from educators who share, and I want to give back by pushing myself to contribute in kind. It's a little (sometimes a lot) scary (why?), but it really matters. One of my colleagues mentioned recently how powerful it is for us to learn alongside our students, to show them that we are learners, too. I believe learning alongside my colleagues -- both in my school and in the wider world, is the most important work I do.
