Saturday July 12th, was a great day of learning and sharing for me! I had the distinct pleasure participating in a conference in Tennessee, learning from topic experts [some who have been part of my PLN for years, some I just connected with], was able to share on a topic I’ve been researching, and [best part] I didn’t have to leave my home in NC!
I’d like to thank Adam Taylor, @2footgiraffe, for inviting me to be a part of his innovative summer pd for area school leaders. PrincipalMeet was a great experience in connected learning and advancement of school leader’s skills and development. I had a great time hearing from the different perspectives from presenters on some topics I knew well or have wanted to dive deep into.
Adam created a Hangout for every virtual presentation. With each Hangout, he shared out the YouTube video link on Twitter, enabling everyone in our PLNs and on Twitter, to watch and learn. From participating in this, I learned how I can incorporate Google+ and Hangouts into my own connected experiences. This is also a great way to archive the learning for future use. My presentation was on using Google Forms for Instructional Supervision. I’ve written about this earlier in several blog posts as well as made some instructive presentations on rationale and the ‘how tos’. Below is the video of my presentation.

I’m appreciative of chance to learn and participate. It was great to connect with some of the difference makers out there who I’ve been following and admiring. I’m inspired to continue my efforts to connect and learn, keep innovating how I shift and train teachers and dive more into my PLN!
