ADE and PLNs

A key part of the Apple Distinguished Educator Institute was working with Professional Learning Networks. We self-selected our PLNs by writing our interests on our iPads and then circulating around the ballroom, looking for commonality.  A lot of themes emerged – student publishing, accessibility, content creation.  Our group – all 12 of us – focused on content creation in Science and Math.  Our group name: ScMath Media.  Our group number: 21, which is also the atomic number of Scandium!

During the course of the week, we brainstormed, ideated, pondered, learned, explored our topics as we each developed a focus for our final project.  At our final lunch together on Thursday … we had every meal together Monday through Thursday … it was clear that we were supportive of each others ideas and we helped move each other beyond our initial ideas.  I could not have asked for a better team of educators to work with – educators who challenged me, inspired me!
