Powerful Learning Practice is bringing back the PLP Hub
In June, 2020 we will be launching an online community for connection, collaboration, and to serve as a co-working/co-creating kind of space for educators (and those who love them) who would rather not work alone, especially at a time such as this.
The world has turned upside down, and too many of us are dealing with loss and extreme change while trying to social distance.
Powerful Learning Practice advocates strong social and emotional connections during this time of physical distancing.
I don’t know about you, but the constant pouring in of information is just becoming too much to handle! I need a cup of coffee, a quiet place to think, and some connected friends who can help me sort this all out.
Powerful Learning Practice is all about connected communities. We have taught others to learn this way for a long time. We can help.
We are building a place where you can sit with others (virtually) while you get your work done, your questions answered, and enjoy one another’s company. A place where you can take a break now and then and have meaningful discussions online together.
It begins June, 2020, it’s going to be available AFTER all this is over, and there’s no cost to be part of it–not now, not then.
It’s a place for you to find community during this time of separation and uncertainty. Community with other educators, educational leaders, and others who love and support educators.
Inside you will find:
- A community. One that has the ability to create topics, groups, and more. A community that will help you with your remote work, remote teaching, and meeting the needs of your family as everything moves online.
- Organized conversations and resources, laid out in a way that makes sense. We will help you. We will guide you. We will be quiet when you need us to be.
- Topic starters and resources will run the gamut. We won’t just discuss remote everything. We will discuss life, resilience, leading virtually, productivity, accountability, navigating uncertainty, emotional/spiritual health, and more.
- Video chat rooms where you can talk (or simply sit quietly) side-by-side with other people who are working remotely.
- Live conversations and Q&A sessions with Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach and the PLP family of coaches and other edTech experts. You will also have access to Connected Coaches who practice laser coaching methods.
- Daily resource suggestions and vetted resource libraries.
- New friends, other educators from around the world who are going through all this with you.
- Plus, an occasional diversion during these difficult times.
It’s open 24 hours a day and it’s free.
