Day 61/179 Is it transformative? (The definition of #transformative is something, such as a lesson or experience, that #inspires #change or causes a #shift in viewpoint.) BOOM! What an epic question?! After thinking, discussing, and questioning this question today, I’m still not sure I can answer it with a definitive answer. Today I had the opportunity to have thoughtful and open conversations about redefining the means to education. Is it a good teacher that matters most or a good student? Is it the tech or the ideas? Is it the master or the apprentice? Is it the entire system? How do we as educators get to a point of providing transformative opportunities for our students…and what if we do…and they don’t take them? What IS transformative? How do we get to transformative? What I’m still thinking tonight, as I reflect on the day is, can WE actually make them have transformative experiences? Isn’t it the student that ultimately has to make it transformative bc of their work, perspective, experience, thoughts, insight and #readiness? When the student is ready kinda thing… All I know is that I’m am stoked to work for a district that let’s me wear #pajamas and lay around on blankets for a #professionaldevelopment day!!! Of course it was much more than just that, and actually the real #pd starts when I get back to my classroom and start making changes. The big questions still have me thinking and to me that is a success! I guess I just have to be comfortable in the question and keep trying to create experiences that go beyond #books #tech and #myself. Oh, and the #yoga…well, that’s been a pretty transformative force for me in EVERY area of my life!!! #tryit #schoolyearyoga #schoolyoga #yogainjammas #yogaeverydamnday #officeyoga #officeyogarevolution #teacherspractice #teacherlife #teacherproblems #hbuhsd #bewell #microblogging #mindful #reflection #techcarol #hbtechfest
