In preparation for a "Paper Jam" session with Betty Gilgoff and Julia Hengstler, I'll be posting a series related to professional learning. Here is our session description:
Shifting Landscapes of Professional Learning:We won't actually be writing a paper for our paper jam. Instead we'll have a series of blog posts that we'll try to organize in a way that makes sense.
Time & Date: 9:50 A.M. - 10:35 A.M., Friday, June 19, 2009
Location: Rm. 185, Irving K. Barber Learning Centre (IKBLC)
Session Description: During the past two years we have seen a dramatic increase in the adoption of social networking, and micro-blogging services by educators for their own personal and professional learning. During this session teachers from various BC school districts, university faculty, and online community leaders will share stories about how Twitter and other social networking tools have dramatically impacted the way that educators connect, exchange information, search out mentors and like-minded colleagues, and engage in rewarding though often unintentional learning. How has your professional learning landscape shifted? What are the implications?
