April 25th Assignment

A 7th Grader's PLE
This video really surprised me. The 7th grader had an awesome Personal Learning Environment, why am I still having trouble developing mine? I have twitter, facebook, delicious, and a great website called The Educator's PLN that I like to use, but mine isn't set up quite as neatly as this girl's is. I'm going to check into Symbaloo because it looked like a great organization website. The screenflow was used very well. I also liked seeing her use of the website Evernote. You can save all types of text and it's a great website. Overall, her PLE definitely inspired me to keep growing my own PLE.

Two Questions That Can Change Your Life
The two questions asked in this video were written by Daniel Pink, author of 'Drive'. The first question was, "What is your sentence?" It gives a lot of examples of what famous people's sentences could have been and wants you to think of your own sentence. To be honest, I can't think of a sentence for myself right now. I think further along in my education I will be able to develop a better idea of my goals for my life. For right now I will say that my sentence would be, "She did the best she could to change students lives for the better." The second question Mr. Pink asks was, "Was I better today than yesterday?" I think this is a great question to ask yourself because it will make you strive to be your best each day. I worked really hard on projects yesterday and today I am just sitting at work, so I can't say that I'm better today that I was yesterday. Everyday is different I suppose! I think that every teacher should ask themselves these questions each day for inspiration.

  1. Two Questions was a very inspirational video that I think all teachers should watch and think about! It's inspiring in so many different ways. I love your picture that you put on your post also. Very appropriate. As far as the seventh grader and her PLE, WOW, I was amazed at what an intelligent self motivator she was! Great post Amber!
