Social Media and Personal Learning Communities in Schools

A Resource Link blog post from last September gives a great overview of how social media can help teachers grow their personal learning communities. Social media allows us to connect not only to those we know, but also to those who we don’t know, but who share our passions, our interests and our profession." Roberts and Pruitt, in their book Schools as Professional Learning Communities (p3, 2009) quote research that suggests that the major obstacle for schools who wish to develop as learning communities is the provision of resources such as time to collaborate, leadership support, information and ready access to colleagues. Social Media is not the total answer; but in schools where money and time are in short demand (and which school isn’t in this situation?), they can go part of the way in meeting these needs. Here's how: 1. Social media providing time to collaborate 2. Social media providing leadership support 3. Social media providing information 4. Social media providing ready access to colleagues Learn more here. Not comfortable with your social media skills? Atomic Learning can help.

Educator Who Quits Over iPad Initiative Has a Change of Heart after Online Training

Vacaville Christian Schools in Vacaville, CA recently embarked on a district-wide iPad initiative. While most of the educators grasped the transition to the tablets in their instruction, one teacher in particular struggled. “She was one of the best math teachers on the planet,” Middle School Principal Maylene Ripley said, “But she said she couldn’t do it and she resigned. ” Although the Middle School would miss the talented math teacher, Ripley didn’t want to force the transition on her. Over the few months after her resignation, her colleagues kept in touch with her and encouraged her that the training and support they were getting through the school’s Atomic Learning subscription would help her through. She decided to return to the school and used the school’s online training solution to become proficient enough in using the tablet that she now teaches other educators how to use their mobile device effectively in their classrooms. Being a great support system to the teachers as they transitioned was one of Ripley’s claims to a successful mobile implementation. “They needed to know we were there for them when they struggled,” Ripley said. Ripley also credits their mobile device implementation success to their online training partner, Atomic Learning. “One of the best things we did was partner with Atomic Learning,” Ripley stated. “With the on-demand, anytime, anywhere training, our staff could train when they wanted to, on what they needed. ” Ripley is thrilled with how the story of her staff ends. “She (teacher who resigned) could barely turn the iPad on and now she’s training others with it,” Ripley said.
