Starting in July, we’re going to be sponsoring some “Open Mic” night’s on Elluminate, a chance for people to just drop in and spend an hour talking about various education/tech/shift related topics. We know there are lots of opportunities for Perpetual PD out there already, but a number of folks have expressed an interest in just sitting down and talking/chatting with other folks from around the world around topics of shared interest, so we thought we’d provide the structure and see what happens. Think of it as a virtual coffee house (or tavern or whatever works…)
We’re open to suggestions here, but we’ll supply some PLPeeps (and possibly some other folks from the community) to moderate/facilitate the discussion (not to participate, necessarily,) and we were thinking that to maximize the participation time, we’d give those that wanted the mic one minute before passing it on. (If they wanted to say more, they could always get back in the queue.) If you have other ideas, please add them here. And we’ll use the tag #edopnemic unless we get a better suggestion.
The other big question is around the topics for conversation. We were thinking a crowdsourced list of 10 or so topics for discussion. If you have some ideas, add them in the comments below and we’ll aggregate them together for a vote. Also, mark your calendars for 9 pm ET on Tuesday nights starting July 6. More details to follow.
Looking forward to extending the conversation with all of you this summer.
