Welcome Glendale staff, to your new staff professional learning blog. For those new to blogging, this will be a great place to learn what a blog is, how to use one and what you can gain from blogging as a teacher or paraprofessional. If you're not so new to the concept of blogging, but you've never actually written or contributed to one, this will be a space for you to explore those possibilities. Ultimately, though, this blog will be useful to all of us because its focus is professional learning; an element of personal and professional development we all have a responsibility to participate in.
Our school is an inquiry-based school, and we are science and technology-based. Blogs are a great way to inquire (ask questions) and initiate dialog to further all three of these elements. Let's learn how to maximize this versatile learning tool as we continue to advance our skills and knowledge as teachers, learners and supporters of kids.
