Beware The Echoes 8:365×2

There are so many reasons to connect, to engage with other educators, to share ideas and discuss. As we do however, we ought to be wary.

Twitter is a breeding ground for advancing progressive educational ideas. Because of this, many of us feel the same about a number of issues. We share, we ReTweet, we applaud one another! As great as it is to feel validated about your ideas, it can be dangerous!

This week I had the pleasure of engaging with two individuals who challenged my ideas. Who brought great, refreshing disagreement to the discussion. It challenges us to define our thinking, to take other views into account, and presents us with new learning!

Do yourself a favor, seek out some people for your PLN who will generally disagree with you. You won’t always like it, but you will be better for it!
