Pair-a-Dimes 8 – My EdCampWest Reflections


Description: After a reflection on my own ‘learning out loud’, I look at 4 different ‘take-aways’ from my participation in the EdCampWest conference session at SFU. The four take-aways:
1. Twitter as an amazing educational tool.
2. Learning from K12 and Higher Ed, and the potential to learn from each other.
3. Teachers as ‘Lead Learner’, and the value of failure.
4. Personalization in education, with a look at assessment and the role of the teacher.
