So Now What??
I returned from New Zealand almost 2 months ago, enjoyed a restorative summer break, and now the new school year has begun. After ALL that I learned about future focused education in Australia and New Zealand, I find myself asking...so now what???
- What do I do with this information?
- How can I apply my learnings to my own practice?
- How can I put collaborative teaching practices in place with my colleagues?
- How do I update my classroom learning environment to reflect the Modern Learning Environments (MLEs) I observed?
- How do I continue to share this experience with anyone and everyone who will listen?
I find that once I get immersed in the head-spinning "busyness" that is the job of teaching, my greater goals often take the backset to the day-to-day tasks. To keep my goals in the forefront of my mind, I plan to use this blog as a way to continue reflecting on and sharing what I have learned about future forward learning. I will also share specific examples of how I am implementing them in my own practice, in my school learning environment, with my fellow teachers, and of course, with my future focused learners. I will use the questions that I set out to explore in my trip to Australia and New Zealand as a guide. You can find these questions here.
Stay tuned to see my ideas take flight!!
