So, I post to Instagram what I'm doing....
I immediately get a response.... in another language
Uh, oh. I have no idea what language this is!
Did I do something wrong?
But then, I remember I have a tool that can help me figure this out - Google Translate!
Phew! And I got a compliment -Sweet!
Just a quick reminder of how AMAZING technology is! I could never have imagined when I was 10 that I would be getting feedback from someone in another language and that I would be able to figure it out without knowing the language.
Do you ever read something and get it stuck in your head?
I read this great blog post from Andrew Kauffman, called Ideas Floating Around, you should read it. He has this line in there that I just couldn't get out of my head. "As dark as our world is at times, I know there are ideas floating around in the minds of our students, just waiting to see the sunshine."
Amazing right? I had to create this sketchnote to interpret that for my brain.
I am a strong believer that everyone in the classroom is both a learner and a teacher, if you chose to listen. Have you listened to your students today? What kinds of things have you created in your classroom to create a culture of shared ideas?
What student ideas are you going to shine a light on today?
