The Guilded Age: Professional Learning Communities in Education - ASCD

The Guilded Age: Professional Learning Communities in Education - ASCD | Leadership ideas | Scoop.it
“ A millennium ago, artists and artisans formed guilds to share expertise and support one another in highly-skilled professional practice. These vibrant learning communities sustained artistry and craftsmanship through the dark ages when centers of learning were exclusive and rare. Much like these medieval guilds, professional learning communities (PLCs) provide a new dimension to professional development as educators flock around high-interest needs and topics. By definition, PLCs Form organically around immediate member needs and interests. Allow participants to self-select their roles and contributions. Offer opportunities to enrich and deepen understanding. Include collaborative inquiry in the learning process. Provide practice and risk taking in a safe, supportive climate. Grow, morph, and disband as part of a life cycle.”

I use Evernote a lot and would make more use of penultimate if I had a decent stylus though the web clipper extensions for browsers are useful.

Used to plan cards with Andy, CEO of Boxer, about 6-7 years ago.  Great guy!  Quite the innovator.  If I were allowed to use Boxer at work, I would.

I love the suggestion about administrators choosing the mentors carefully. Mentorship is an authentic, natural relationship and not something manufactured because it is the latest fad which it presently is.
