Last Tuesday I had the privilege of guest moderating #APSCHATS - a district-wide weekly Twitter chat on various topics around education. Here are the questions I asked:
Q1: How do you define learning?
One of the most interesting things, to me, was that despite most of the participants teaching in the same district, the responses to the questions around definitions of learning, meaningfulness, and assessment were as varied as they were rich. I do not see this as a bad thing, but rather a visible validation that all those who work in schools should understand that other people in the same district (or same school) may not articulate their thinking in the same way or even share the same belief systems. This understanding helps to better communicate better, work better together, and to serve learners better.
