Tool #2

Building an online community and participating in a PLN is like being back in graduate classes using Blackboard.  Both allow teachers to work at their own pace while sharing ideas and ideas.  I need to set up an elementary science community to share ideas, give staff development, and provide thoughts about vertical alignment.  This is really important because of the budget cuts.  

I think I need to follow several ground rules.  First, the community must be a group for all elementary teachers.  Secondly, there moderator must provide questions at high level's of Bloom's Taxonomy.  Third, there must be follow up.  Finally, it must be recognized that what is put in print stays in print.  

I feel fine about posting thoughts publicly.  Posting publicly makes me slow down and reflect more before I put something in writing.
