If David Jakes is right, and I devote 15 minutes a day to professional learning, what exactly am I expecting to happen? Will my outlook on life or teaching or learning change? Will the 24 hours in a day that I currently have turn into 25 or 26 hours? Will people around me realize that I am getting smarter? Will I actually get smarter?
I expect our students to change. I expect that teachers attending professional development that I lead to change. I expect that my work will make other people change. But what exactly happens to me. How do I get to show what I have learned? Is what I am learning making change in a positive way?
Taking the idea of 15 minutes of professional learning to heart, I will share what I have learned. I might even share how I have changed. Whatever happens, this blog is the record.
