Purposeful Transparency and Productive Eavesdropping
How can you work to make your actions and rationales visible to all?
How can you help others to see into your conversations and work?
How do you model for your students how you use your technology to work effectively? Are we a group that wants to shut down every new app or tool out of fear or do we want to embrace it to show meaningful ways to teach students how to use it - especially since these things are not going away.....
Sometimes we think that our ideas and actions are not good enough so we do not choose to share, but what if we flipped our ideas and shared our failures as well as our successes to show our human side and the process not the end results.
This is definitely an area I struggle with in my own personal networking. Am I sharing too much? I want to keep my circles separate - personal vs. professional. But let's be honest, who does not start talking about school the first moment of a social event that you go too anyway (and then get mad at yourself for it).
