Another dot in the blogosphere?

Heart, head, hands

Posted on: January 21, 2015

I will share a strategy on how I design learning experiences and professional development opportunities for teachers and educators.

I appeal to the heart, head, and hands.

Teachers need to know why there is a need for a particular change at the beginning and it must be reinforced at the end. In between, there must be opportunity for sense-making and negotiating, and there are few substitutes for these outside of working with others and reflecting deeply.

Thoughts and feelings are fleeting so they must be recorded by hands-on activities. Such activities are also the most obvious to participants when it comes to recall and providing feedback. They serve as anchors to which a-ha or connect-the-dots moments are tethered.
