Why I'm Here

2 593 Views
Hello. I plan to camp out here for awhile along with my co-moderator Whitney Hoffman. Here's why: we are at a tipping point where customized learning is going to become the way. Like it or not, that's what accountability will mean....which doesn't mean that test scores will be the objective measurement of the future. I am quite certain they won't be. However, educators will increasingly be asked to ensure all students master learning objectives before moving on in grade level and subject matters. And this means we will have to keep discovering ways to personalize learning and differentiate instruction. I see this as an opportunity--a way to refocus the classroom on true and authentic learning. I have a lot of ideas about how to do..and as someone who has a real love of teaching, I'm here to share my ideas--to inspire teachers to find new and exciting ways to engage all students. Moreover, I am here to learn from you. I will soon be leading a young school that is focused on personalized learning--and I will be looking for the answers about what works best. Let's take it to a new level here....
