Reflections on a PLP year…

2. Our students benefit from having a real-world audience for their work.
3. Building a professional learning network takes time that I must make.
4. Many times and in many ways, my PLN crosses over into my PFN (personal friend network), and I am richer for it.
5. The new digital divide is between those who understand and can move in this connected, sharing environment and those who can't.

  1. Susan, I found myself saying Yes! to most of these points. I hope that soon I’ll be able to say yes! to the points where student learning is transformed (#6). I’ve learned so much from you and your colleagues, and I hope to keep doing that. Congratulations on completing your first journey.

  2. Thanks, Tania. We are all on this journey together. I feel empowered from this experience and look forward to working with all of you for a long time.
