School Week 2: The Busyness Blanket

Posted by jturner56 on August 16, 2014

As first the teachers returned to prepare for the new school year, closely followed by students everything quickly took on the momentum of School. A busyness to be ready dominates.

We should be thankful for the chance to re-boot the brain, as Daniel Levitin reminds us, a crucial requirement if we are to be ready for such demands.

The bell goes and each classroom becomes it’s own world. Focus tightens. Hopefully with doors open, reflecting an openness of heart and mind.

To add value we therefore should look to build and support teams, connect through weaving new ideas, and making space available for queries and ideas. As Joanne Orlando highlighted, changing teachers’ changing practices with ICTs  must take into account that that such change is personal and complex.

So we continue to look to how best to sustain purposeful relationships, support valuable risk-taking, taking opportunities to new levels through utilising the power of digital to communicate, clarify, cooperate, collaborate and contribute to learning.
