I talked to a lot of educators around the globe who shared my feelings. Some gave me advice. Others told me how they were changing their chats. After chatting with Andrew Thomasson from #flipclass, I knew I had to go for it. Flash blogging... this was it. Let's get more of the community sharing what it was that they were going to focus on professionally for the rest of the school year.
Christine Younghusband and I chatted to put this chat together. It was to be a blend of the old model: the Q1/A1 format, and a new one: openly planning resolutions as an inquiry project. We used this document to organize our community's thinking and to focus on a single resolution.
After people threw their resolutions down, we got them to start planning. The next thing we'll focus on? Sharing.
If you're curious to see the flow of the chat tonight, check out the Storify. Stay tuned to see how the #bcedchat community progresses with their New Year's goals!
