This year with the 30 Goals Challenge for Educators, our 30 Goals Facebook community is voting on what some of the goals will be. We are grabbing this from the list of goals from the previous 3 cycles. This year’s theme is, “This is MY Moment.” Each goal will focus on getting educators to believe their plans of action now will lead to positive changes and transformation in their teaching and learning environments.

Goal

Short-term- share an activity you believe worked well with learners. Please post it to the blog, A Lesson Plan a Day. Don’t forget to include your name and Twitter/Blog Urls.  Tumblr is a blogging site that allows anyone to submit questions and blog posts through a form. Thanks to Jake Duncan, @DuncanBilingual, for setting up the Tumblr. During this cycle of The 30 Goals he’s been my go to Edtech guru, helping me to integrate incredible collaborative tools in almost every goal.

Below I will add posts about teaching with Tumblr. The site is very popular with teens and college students but would be inappropriate for anyone under 16, because of the nature of some of the community posts.

Long-term- continue to share activities and lessons you believe are effective with your colleagues and encourage them to share as well.
