Digital Learning

Currently at a digital learning conference.  Learning lots of new tidbits about technology, groups, collaboration and google.  So many possibilities with education in a digital world.

Last year, I spent most of the school year participating in Teacher Research.  I was able to collaborate with other teachers in my building to share research.  We explored many questions together, and looked closely at what was happening inside our classroom walls.  I decided to focus my research last year on the idea of perspective.  I tried to bring the idea of perspectives into many different content areas, and focused on creating an empathetic atmosphere in the classroom.  Throughout my research I discovered many books to use that would allow us to see from a different perspective.  I recently found a book that would have been perfect to tie into all this research:  Wonder by: RJ Palacio.... don't worry... I can still use it next year.  :)  This book weaves in different perspectives throughout the story and reminds us to be "kinder than necessary."

I encourage you all to give this a try.  I couldn't put it down!
