At Educon 2.4 a couple of months ago, I co-facilitated a session called #chats and #camps: Examining the Impact of Social Media-Fueled PD on Classroom Practice and Student Learning. That conversation was driven, partly, by a blog post I had written called “To What Effect?”
Tonight, I’ll be hosting a kickoff meeting for a potential virtual, distributed action research project aimed at documenting the impact of informal, social-media driven professional learning. Meredith Stewart and Bud Hunt will be co-facilitating with me.
Those who attended the session and indicated an interest in following up have been contacted, consulted and notified about the kickoff meeting. If you were not in that session and you’ve not been notified, consider this an invitation to join in the fun. The meeting will be tonight (Wednesday, March 21) at 8:30 p.m. EST. The meeting will be held in a Wimba Live Classroom, which you can access at http://bit.ly/w5wdtH. You might need a little time to make sure your computer is configured properly for Wimba, so please consider trying to access the room in advance.
I hope you’ll join us tonight… and beyond!
