The concept of amplified education is fascinating!

The Free Dictionary defines the verb “amplify” as:

  1. To make larger or more powerful; increase.
  2. To add to, as by illustrations; make complete.

When I think of amplifying teaching and learning, I think of:

I am excited to be able to “amplify” my thoughts (pun intended) by “making learning larger”, “increase” the perspectives and best practices… work on adding puzzle pieces of teaching reflections from my learning network.

Together with Andrea Hernandez (USA), Chic Foote (New Zealand) and Silvana Meneghini (Brazil), we will practice what we preach and amplify teaching and learning via a Twitter Chat, sparking a conversation and moving forward to

  • define amplified teaching and learning
  • share resources
  • support each other
  • learn with others
  • crowdsource examples of best practices in professional development and from the classroom
  • practice amplification skills
