“We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.” Maya Angelou
I unfortunately could not attend ASCD 2013 this year but because of Twitter, it was like I was there! I learned a lot and still walked away with some great resources, right from my couch! Below I share the things I learned. There are a lot of embedded links so don’t miss out!
1. Maya Angelou speech was inspiring even though I couldn’t hear it. There were many tweets quoting here and this poem is one she recited.
2. Fisher and Frey’s – YouTube Channel has great resources
4. Great Common Core resource site shared by Eric Sheninger @NMHS_Principal called Wiki-Teachers. the site has all of the standards unwrapped with lesson plans, videos and assessments. http://bit.ly/15k13MX
5. Link shared by @WholeChildADV Andy Hargreaves and Pasi Sahlberg: Where are We Going and Why? — Whole Child Education
8. A great chart on managing complex change Tweeted by @RemynesES
9. “If you really want to do something you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.” Jim Rohn Tweeted by @lindapemik
Even though I could not attend ASCD13, I was still able to learn a lot because of Twitter. Next year, hopefully I will be there and sharing resources for others who couldn’t make it.
