Coming from a SpEd background, I'm diving in to this having very limited exposure to inquiry learning, multi-age groupings, and personalized learning, never mind the fact that I haven't had my own full group of kids--a "class" as it's commonly known--in a very long time. I'm feeling like I'm going to need a lot of help. I'm calling on my personal learning network and professional peers to please support me and allow me access to your expertise, ideas and experiences as I move through this educational journey.
I'm going to be posting (at the very least) weekly vlog posts to share out my "What" (as in what's been going on), "So What" (what I need, what I want, what I don't know, what I need help with, etc), and "Now What" (my action plan if I've been able to formulate one, but the "now what" may need to come through the collaborative cycle). What I need from others is your comments, your thoughts, your ideas, your experiences, your questions, your sharing, your suggestions, your CONTRIBUTIONS to my blog. I want to engage with you and learn with you/from you. Please tune in, follow the #talk<5 on Twitter (and me, @spedlearner) while I bravely soldier ahead in what feels like a very scary venture.
