Have you ever been to a conference or professional development session that left you swimming with ideas?
That’s exactly what the BLC12 conference in Boston did for me. Every day was so rich in connections and possibilities! I truly got pumped up to get back to the work of making our schools and our students better. Today, I wanted to share with you the synthesis of all that learning. Making infographics and visuals tends to help me take all the pieces and tie them together in one neat little package. I thought it might be helpful for you, as well, to grab these ideas and run with them in your own schools. I definitely plan on writing and talking about some of these in much more depth. But, for today, here’s all of my essential learning ties up with a nice little bow.
