During this time of social distancing, connecting and collaborating virtually have become priorities for most of us—and a lifeline for many. In countless ways, mandated isolation actually has brought us closer together as we find creative ways to foster professional learning networks (PLNs) by finding and following pertinent topics, reach out to others for recommendations and resources, and lean on our colleagues and mentors.
The strength of community is in the connection. This month, we’re focusing on strengthening our connections and PLNs through social media platforms. Together, we’ll build a network of like-minded educators committed to being better, stronger, and reflective, every day and everywhere.
These monthly challenges are meant to inspire and provide opportunities for you to learn, listen, and lead within your PLN. We encourage you to use whichever social media platforms are most effective for you. While the challenges aren’t required, each completed challenge (posted and tagged on social media, of course) enters you into a drawing for prizes.
