Talking about PLE’s

Today I had the pleasure of working with a group of system leaders in the Hastings Prince Edward County DSB. Despite a minor wrench thrown into the works by mother nature (downed power lines,no electricity or Internet) we managed to get together and learn together. As always, the rich conversation with engaged learners and leaders is always challenging and stimulating. What strikes me most when these conversations happen is the fact that despite our talk about social media and learning with these tools, it always comes down to the importance of effective relationship building, nurturing and maintenance. It’s so exciting to hear these converging ideas and to understand that no matter how much change that occurs, the human interaction is what drives learning in this digital era.

I feel energized and absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such dedicated leaders and look forward to seeing what comes next!
