Teaching is Sharing

Check out Dean Shareski's K-12 on-line conference keynote. He talks about teaching as sharing, sharing as an obligation. Not just to students in our buildings, but to the world. Works for me! All of us can learn from the top educators in the world! Blogging inspires your teaching.Sharing on-line means that "students are the direct beneficiaries of the work of others".

Teachers who share ideas are inspired by the learning and communicating of ideas. Blogging has certainly inspired my teaching. Try it, you don't have to be the best teacher in the world to share.

As part of a technology committee in Saskatoon, I often talk about the need for teachers to become a community instead of a committee. Teachers have had great ideas in their classrooms for a long time. Too often these ideas are not shared. How hard can it be for us to share our best ideas with each other with today's tools? Dean makes a strong case that sharing is an obligation and not an option!
