It’s On!

Never Stop Learning Pic wo Border

I was recently invited to participate in a blogging challenge. Terri Eichholz threw down the gauntlet and I can’t resist a good challenge (especially when it involves collaboration and my own professional learning).

The premise of the challenge is to name a practice or idea that I adapted from somebody in my PLN, and to follow-up by challenging three more educators to do the same. My response is a resounding, “It’s on!!”

The ideas that I “borrowed” actually came from ten different educators and highlight the power of collaboration made possible via Twitter. You see, each of these ten AMAZING people from across the country shared three mini-challenges designed to help other educators hone their technology skills.

All of this sharing culminated in an epic PD opportunity for you. The ten educators helped create the “Digital Leadership Challenge.” Click HERE to read the mini-challenges. I encourage you to participate with us by working your way through any of the challenges over the next several months.

As part of the #LMSChallenge, I’m passing the torch to three (3) groups:

1.) The ten original collaborators on the Digital Leadership Challenge

2.) The 80+ educational leaders that have signed-up already to participate and grow their Digital Leadership

3.) The Minnesota Elementary Principals Association #MESPAmn

I challenge educators in these groups to blog about an idea they implemented or adapted from somebody in their PLN and post it to Twitter using the hashtag #LMSchallenge. Whatever you do, don’t forget to join us in taking the Digital Leadership Challenge. Sign-up HERE and choose which of the 33 mini-challenges you’ll participate in. This is personalized PD on steroids, and we’ve got a great group collaborating on the challenges.

Make it a great day…and NEVER stop learning!
