Have You Gone LIVE Lately?

At CCE we get lots of opportunity to learn professionally right inside the school walls - how lucky are we? However, from time to time we get out and go to trainings, workshops and conferences in an effort to broaden our horizons. For years I think it was so hard to carve out time to share our new learning from these opportunities with colleagues. Often just our teaching/thinking partners or grade level teams got the benefit of our growth leaving the rest of us wondering - How do we make sure everyone gets the benefit of the training? The resounding answer to that questions became BLOG IT - and Live From the Creek was born. Live is a blog devoted entirely so that those attending training outside the school can share their experiences with the rest of us left behind - in real time. Melanie Holtsman, our Tech Coach, and I are currently at FETC (Florida Educational Technology Conference) in Orlando, FL and are posting to Live From the Creek as we sit in the sessions - placing you right in the seat beside us! Have you gone LIVE lately?

I have really enjoyed learning about your adventures via the blog. I love the fact that I can sit at home in my PJs and coffee in front of the computer and learn at my own pace. Thanks to both of you for sharing and for leading the way towards taking greater risks.

I am so sad I did not know you were going I would have tried to find you. I am an avid reader of the many teachers at Chet Creek that blog. As a matter of fact I stopped at the voicethread booth and told them I saw voicethread on your blogs. I started with Dayle's blog and read many frequently. I would have LOVED to meet you! I teach 1st grade in Port Orange and would love to visit your school and see the wonderful things you all do with kids everyday.
