Well, we're BACK!!
I can't tell you how excited I am to be bringing you the Educator Learning Series for an entire year instead of just the summer! We had over 3,000 people from 8 different countries participating last summer!
If you missed our summer installment, don't worry, you can still check out all those awesome challenges, HERE!
Just like this past summer, I am going to be reaching out to many of my friends to help me create these weekly challenges.
There are no rules to these challenges. You don't have to complete them one by one. Complete the ones that speak to you!
My hope is just that you find some value in some of the ideas, tools, and teaching practices that will be shared by people from all over the world.
First off, I want to remind everyone to SHARE your learning! Whether that be through Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or wherever you are! We want as many people learning together as possible. Use the hashtag #EduLS so that we can easily find all the great stuff you're sharing!
So here's our first challenge. Earlier last week I read a post by the incredible Lisa Dabbs. I asked Lisa if I could use her post for our first challenge and she was thrilled!
Every year we hear all this talk about resolutions and getting ready to be better in a new year.
This year, instead of a resolution, what if we just came up with #onelittleword to help us guide and define our year ahead of us?
You can read more about this HERE.
So your challenge this week is to come up with your #onelittleword and share it on social media using the #EduLS hashtag! Be creative though. Take a picture of yourself holding the word up, design a graphic, paint it on a canvas. Create it in a way that you can post it somewhere to remind yourself every day!
So there you have it. Week 1 is pretty easy.
What's my word you may ask? Well I've decided that my word for this year is "impact". I want to make sure that every choice I make and every path I choose is one that will leave a lasting impact. One that will make waves, challenge, support, create, and show love. I want my entire journey this year leave an impact.
So, what's yours?
