Note: If you have come via the video, please visit the 2012 30 Goals Challenge page!
Over 7000 educators have joined the The 30 Goals Challenge since January 2010. You have a chance to receive a free autographed copy of the new published book with new goals simply by participating in the journey. Eye on Education will be publishing The 30 Goals Challenge for Educators book that will be available for purchase. Keep an eye out!
Throughout the months of February/ March we will aim to accomplish 30 short-term goals related to education. These are short-term goals we reflect on and see how they help us aim towards long-term goals. We support each other through various social networks. You will also read very short related posts in this blog and at Lisa Dabb’s (@TeachingwthSoul) Teaching With Soul blog. Lisa will be helping support the various social media forums. I’m glad to have her expertise and experience in this area, especially since she had accomplished so much by mentoring new teachers in the #NTChat and through The Educator’s PLN Ning Teacher Mentorship group.
Exciting News!!! If you complete at least 10 goals by posting on any of the following social networks your reflection of one of the goals then your name will be placed in a raffle to win an autographed copy of the book. I also have a special surprise to announce near the end of 2011!
