The Pinterest Learning Party that didn't happen .... 

I was all excited about a meeting I was supposed to have after school today …

We were having our very first Pinterest Learning Network meeting … our “PLN”

And we starting it off with a party!

I even sent out invitations …

I made snacks that I found on Pinterest to bring …

I even had a dream about it last night!!!!

And then the Big, Bad Weather Monster threatened to hit!

Since school gets out 3 hours early today (which I am not complaining because I don’t want my little one to be caught in weather-related accidents), we don’t get to have our party today …

I found out about the early release before I left the house this morning, so while in the car I started thinking about when to reschedule it and what to do …

I am supposed to start a blended learing experience tomorrow (more about that another time), so I started considering the options I have available …

We do have edmodo that I could use …

We also have moodle that I need more practice using ..

So I decided to turn this into a learning opportunity for me too and jumped over to moodle!

My plans were to have a sharing time and then discussions about searching for and evaluating resources. How do you find things to pin? Do you find pins you like and then for things from the same person/place? How do you decide what to pin and what not to pin? What things help you make that decision?

Those are the same questions, concerns, and ideas we have about teacher and student resources …

How do we find resources/ideas? How do we evaluate what we find?

I guess that can be applied to research too ..

Both online and offline …

Suprisingly the plans in head actually worked as I quickly put together a way for teachers to share the information online that they would have shared in the session today (it won’t be a party though) …

I asked questions and encouraged responses in a way that I hope will get a conversation started …

I guess we will just have to see what happens …

The Pinterest Learning Party didn’t happen today …

But it WILL happen!

In some form one of these days …..
