Wonder Wednesday - #Titletalk Top Five
*This past Sunday night I joined in on the most recent #titletalk.
*This monthly chat occurs on Twitter and is run by Donalyn Miller and Colby Sharp.
*Each month they present a topic of conversation with educators, administrators, and librarians joining in on the "chat".
*This month's topic was "Collaboration." The conversation was from 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM (CT)
*The hour always goes by so quickly and by the end my mind is swimming with new information.
*I thought I would share my top-five moments, quotes, or ideas that came from the hour.
*These come from my memory so I'm not listing who said it and may not get it word for word.
-Most people collaborate online via Twitter, Facebook, Voxer, Googledocs, and Blogs.
-One goal of collaboration is to connect our students to the world outside of our own four walls.
-It is difficult to collaborate with colleagues that don't share the same views or teaching practices as you might hold close to your heart.
-Sometimes it is ok to collaborate alone which in turn makes you a better collaborator with others.
-You can't force collaboration!
-We need to keep a balance in our lives and can't collaborate in all ways with all people.
(I know this is six statements, but I couldn't just stop at five.)
