How often do you have the opportunity to spend a week learning about technology and teaching unencumbered by other school commitments and obligations? As a number of Choate faculty have commented: I learned and accomplished more in one week than I normally do in an entire school year. Add to that testimonial the opportunity to share that learning with colleagues from seven peer schools, and we find ourselves embarking on a unique professional development experience this week.
Principle 2 of the TLI culture: I will reflect publicly on my experiences as a learner and the potential to use what I have learned in the classroom. That means you should all be posting to the TLI 2012 blog on a daily basis while you are here, and we hope your somewhat regular posts will become a habit of mind after you leave, so the bonds we establish this week do not end on Friday.
Enjoy the week!
