Notes from the Tch Laureates

As we continue to increase the amount of technology available to students, I’ve begun to wonder: how can we use technology to best enhance the learning process? Tch Laureate Maria Perryman has been considering the same question and in a new set of Getting Better Together videos, shows us how she took on the task of learning how to blog and introduced blogging to her students. Maria seeks advice and feedback on her blogging efforts from fellow Tch Laureates Kristin Gray and Sean McComb, modeling a growth mindset and authentic collaboration that inspires her students to do the same. Maria’s vulnerability and willingness to put her learning on display helps her own reflective process and goal setting. This week, watch as Maria moves out of her comfort zone and in so doing, increases opportunities for her students to pursue connected, 21st-century learning.
