    I remain unclear on the “What?” of 21st C learning! I look forward to knowing what it looks like, sounds like, and feels like. Hopefully I am not alone 🙂

    I am so not techie and relieved that we can video on our personal phones! Case in point, I couldn’t even figure out how to post this without Drew’s help! It would be challenging to upload a video via iMovie then export video to Vimeo….speak English, man! Like Mary Lou, I am a private person as well, and appreciate that our videos can stay on our phones. Thanks!

    Thank you, Drew and Ralene for going the extra mileage and develop these pamphlet and offer a clarification from the original presentation. It is clear and concise. It is helpful to know where we can send the videos and how to do it. I confess being intimidated by the process, as I am a very private person. However, I have investigated around on google and other teacher sources as ASCD Smartbrief, Edutopia, Education week and the TESOL Network sites. I realize videotaping ourselves and have a peer review is a normal occurrence in many districts and a MUST if you want to be a nationally certified teacher. Therefore, although new to us, not unique to our profession. One of those things we “just do it” and try to improve our methods and strategies to be the best that we can be.

      Thank you for your support, Mary Lou. We recognize that the practice is intimidating, but the end goal is to become better at what we do for the sake of the children.

        One thing I wish all would keep in mind, we are on a journey. Our journey may never end as we seek to give our children the tools they will need to successfully go out into the world in the year 2022 and beyond. For some the journey is difficult as they overcome insecurities about technology, doubts about their own ability to adapt to change, and fatigue from trying to “do it all.” For others, technology comes naturally, change is exciting, and they can’t wait to try something new.

        Growth is often painful. Take the challenge one step at a time. As yourself, “What is it that I am afraid of?” Dissect the fear and take it on.
