How many years have you been teaching?:
"pens! (currently the Pilot Precise V5 RT"
I'm an ordained Presbyterian pastor who seeks the fertile overlap between transformative learning and an authentic inner journey -- and how to walk that talk alongside my students. I hope my teaching practice plants compassion, empathy, resilience, and joy for my students and for me. I'm a huge Samuel Wineberg fan, wish I could have dinner with Pema Chodron -- and am increasingly convinced that design thinking's practice of empathy-fueled innovation could invite me (and my school family) to journey deeper into the heart of creative, collaborative thinking and authentic relating.
Hey there, friend...! What a pleasure -- and I mean, a deep, teachable PLEASURE -- to read through this and your attachments more carefully today. I sketchnoted my way through your idea, and it led me towards the following: - How might we use social media to power/produce/evoke/iterate/sustain our writing way inward? - How might we use social media to amplify our written way outward? The first of these occurred to me as I reflected upon how social media might invite writers to share snapshots of their way "inward" -- not the complete, completed journey, but the mile under their feet. In this way, I think your idea invites our students (and their teachers!) to re-imagine how Twitter and Instagram might help us turn aside to figure out what matters to us..., and turn aside again to share an early peek at where we find ourselves going -- all in a way that propels us into our journal for the REAL journey of wrestling true words to a true story. The second of these occurred to me as I thought about your point of sharing our finished stories with the world. After all of that invisible, world-rounding work of finding and telling our story, now let's let our story be HEARD -- and, in that way, made real. Anyhow, I'm eager to hear how you see your ideas here coalescing. And I'll be glad to share the sketchnote if you fire an email my way: firstname.lastname@example.org
