Sometimes you just need a plan. When the calendars come off the wall and you haven’t bought the 2017 calendar yet, where can you find the plan? Digital calendars don’t end. Not only can you go forward indefinitely, you can go back as well. When I scrolled back, I made it to 1770. Crazy!
Recently on the #Good2Great Voxer chat, Kari Yates talked about making a 5-year plan. Most of us cringed and were overwhelmed by this thought. But there is something comforting and practical about having a plan.
So here I am back at DigiLitSunday after a few weeks off, and I have no plan. I know that I want this meme to continue, but I feel like a failure as a leader. Where are we going? What is the purpose? What is the goal?
To alleviate my anxiety about this, I have a tentative topic plan for January:
- January 15: Fake vs. Real news: How do we teach our students to be discerning?
- January 22: Balancing Goals with Needs
- January 29: Digital Design
Please check in on the Google Doc. I’ve cleared the topic area, so add in new topic ideas. If you are not listed, please add your contact. My goal is to Tweet the topic on Thursdays.
If you haven’t seen it yet, I’ve started blogging for Kidblog. My first post was published last week. Check it out here.
