We are all well aware of the saying “If you are the smartest one in the room, you need a bigger room”, true as it is, education and learning are a never-ending and growing process, and one must never be satisfied with what he/she has acquired. Being connected is one such way, to build a community and allow a two-way learning process to take place.
Therefore, we at Woodland, the best international schools in Hoshiarpur, have laid a few points that might add up to you being a connected educator:
Now, plugging in needs to be subtle, you can begin by Blogging, tweeting, commenting on various digital platforms. Try participating in established groups, follow existing and trending hashtags and try using them in your posts to engage and increase user reach.
• Attend Conferences
A great way to connect with like-minded people and becoming a part of such a community is to attend e-conferences. It is a great opportunity for budding educators to acquire knowledge about the latest trends and likewise giveback. Space and time shared in such conferences are specially reserved for the things people want to share and have an interest in.
• Block Out Time
One essential miss we experience is not prioritizing blocking, meaning, to take a break from one’s mundane and routine activities and do something contrasting. As someone keen to connect, one must take out a few minutes in his/ her day to connect or be out there in the community they wish to connect to. This way, your entire time goes into connecting and thus being a product of undivided attention.
• Create a Blog
Once you are connected well, ensure that you share your experiences and insights with others over a blog. It is a great way to reflect on what you have learned through your personal learning network.
One cannot be an effective educator without being a connected educator. At Woodland, among the best school in Hoshiarpur, we aim at focusing and delivering what is best for the students as well as the teachers in order to build a community at large.
