#LivEd-This Wednesday, 5/22 at 9pm!

Livingston Educators and friends from around the world…  Let’s connect!  Twitter is a place where educators everywhere are connecting now.  Let’s bring that home!  Folks from Finland to Fowlerville are connecting to share ideas and find new ones.  It’s bite-sized Professional Development and making new friends at the same time.

Once you find a topic of interest, you can decide how much time you would like to spend on it.  Work smarter, not harder!  See you right after our state-wide educator chat #michEd.

The #michEd chat is a great one to check out, if you have not already.  A great way to discuss issues relevant to us, such as last weeks topic, “Building Choice into the Curriculum.”  Jump in and find that there are many other teachers working toward the same objectives, and share those ideas.  How empowering!  In addition to the chats, they have a #michEd podcast that features teacher and student voices.  Check it out here on iTunes.

If you are interested in joining our chat, please join us at 9pm Wednesday.  In addition to local folks, we are hoping that other educators from outside our region join and share their perspectives. Here are the focus questions for 5/22:

  1. How do you get staff to so beyond MS Word publishing stations with 2-4 classroom computers?
  2. What are specific ways to motivate and train staff to try new things with their limited device set-up?
  3. How can techie teacher leaders best support staff hesitant to try new things with their classroom tech devices?
  4. How do teacher leaders get administrators to help motivate hesitant staff to try more tech with their limited device set-up?

New to Twitter, or have more questions about how educators are using it?  Check out “Twitter for Beginners” at Jaqui Knipe’s Blog.
