This blog was inspired by a PLD session run by two of my colleagues at Team Solutions, Nicole Price and Robyn Headifen. They discussed their blogging journey and encouraged us to have a go, check out their blogs below and pass them on to colleagues who might appreciate them
They challenged us to pick up the blogging baton so here I am. The challenge they have set us this week is to answer the following questions
- What am I going to do with this?
Who is going to read this?
What kinds of information will I be posting?
Why am I doing this?
Who am I doing this for?
So here we go
The WHAT- I’m hoping so set up a blog which can be used as a starting point for PLD discussions around the front end of the NZC. I’ll be making posts around different sections of the front end, which I think should be the driving document for lots of conversations in schools.
The WHO– I’m hoping this will be useful for any reflective teacher, or any leader of PLD, not just Science teachers. Most of my online work has been directed at Science teachers rather than all teachers.
The WHY- Cross curricular discussions bring out the best in us all and tend to allow us to focus on the big questions which are relevant to us all without getting bogged down in content discussions.
I really like the ideas here around working in cross curricular groups not faculties
