Tech leader and long-time teacher Sister Geralyn Schmidt offers eight aspects of good teaching, from her warm and fuzzy, sisterly perspective. One of our favorites: teaching the integrity skill, both in the face-to-face world and the virtual world.
We started with the idea of developing a culture of collaboration, and then saw the value of being a connected learner and merged the two ideas. Collaboration has been identified as a core element of the Teaching and Learning Paradigm at Friends School. Being learners ourselves helped us develop empathy for others who are just beginning this journey, and we wanted to help others see the value in developing a PLN, and then see how this would increase our ability to collaborate.
