  37. A1 #txeduchat aren't we all life-long learners? In order for us to survive we need to keep learning new things. Maybe it's bat what we lrn.
  38. @d_mulder So important. A ton of knowledge w/out relationships won't get you far #txeduchat
  39. @Tom_Kilgore sometimes the important ?s to ask are the ones you think you already know the answers to! #txeduchat

  43. A1: Lifelong learners are willing to try and fail, and learn what *doesn’t* work on the way to learning what does. #txeduchat
  44. A1. Able to take that unexpected fork when it looks like the "answer" may have unexpected directions. #txeduchat

  52. Q2 Do your students see you as a learner? Do they know how you learn? #txeduchat
  53. A1: learning is MESSY - don't be afraid to make a mess... #txeduchat
  54. @daisyray215 that needs to be clearly modeled and articulated, not assumed. #txeduchat
  55. @shareski #txeduchat I wonder where the time has gone to let learner wonder? When do we provide time for this for them/themselves
  56. A1 Intense curiosity as a character trait. Everyone is curious about something so everyone is a lifelong learner. #txeduchat
  57. A1: Lifelong learners know that the best way to have a great ideas is to have a lot of ideas. #txeduchat http://t.co/oDLoa7KmHV

  58. A1: A life long learner draws inspiration from those around her. Sees strengths and learning opportunities in others. #txeduchat
  59. @shareski I often wonder about the things that can't really be explained yet- fun to speculate-use creative juices. #txeduchat
  60. @VivienTuckerman sad though that many don't feel the same way ts are human and we 2 make mistakes its how we grow that matters #txeduchat
  61. Educators - life long learners! "Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence" ~ V. Lombardi #txeduchat
  62. A1: Lifelong learners are willing and seeking new knowledge daily. #txeduchat
  63. A2 my students see me as a learner because I'm not afraid to say: I don't know, let's find out! #txeduchat
  64. A2. Yes, as Ss are expected to participate as Ts at least once to help community grow and learn. #txeduchat
  65. @shareski my Ss love when I mess up in front of them. I do it on purpose sometimes. It's good for them to see #txeduchat
  66. A2: My Ss know I am a learner because I often share w/them all that I learn FROM them. #txeduchat
  67. A2 my Ks know I'm on Twitter and share what I learn with them & colleagues. They see me make mistakes & know I am learning #txeduchat
  68. A2 If they do not see me as a learner they will not see the value of learning...WALK the WALK #txeduchat
  69. Q2 My students know I am a learner because often I get them to teach me how to do things they know! An organic classroom #txeduchat
  70. A2: My students definitely know I’m still learning. Many read my blog. Many ask specific questions about my doctoral work. #txeduchat
  71. @Glittersnark True. Someone who enjoys a challenge; likes approaching a problem from many angles. #txeduchat
  72. A2. Ss able to have input on topics, which I tell them means I may have to learn along. #txeduchat
  73. A2 Best examples of teachers as learners come in team teaching environments. #txeduchat
  74. @Tom_Kilgore really?? Every time I learn one thing I develop sooooooooo many more questions #txeduchat
  75. A2 #txeduchat Always try to let my Ss see me trying to learn even tho I am one Old Dog! I also like the to see me fail and what I do after.
  76. #txeduchat A1 Early L^3: curious, playful (at some level continuous learning stokes endorphins). Late L^3 types: same + sense of urgency.
  77. A1 A lifelong learner is someone who operates with a Robots mindset...see a need, fill a need! #txeduchat
  78. They know I am not afraid to make mistakes...I make them all the time... #txeduchat
  79. A2: My Ss know I am a learner because I am honest and share my struggles w/them. I share what I try and how I fail and succeed. #txeduchat
  80. Q2: My students and staff see me as a learner (I think). We have a positive supportive culture, especially our kids - they rock! #txeduchat
  81. Hi! Jill from ga. I teach 6th grade math. This is my first time participating in a #txeduchat
  82. @RusulAlrubail It's really fun for Ss to learn together with their T- to learn and come up with even more ?s to explore-& reflect #txeduchat
  83. A2 What if teachers listed "Stuff I don't know yet." somewhere in their classrooms. #txeduchat
  84. A2: Model how to learn. (Don't just show up and say things.) Annotate, think visibly in moment w/ Ss. Allow reciprocal teaching. #txeduchat
  85. @shareski #txeduchat I often find myself not knowing words or things, it's natural in my classes, however they know I'm curious.
  86. @cathyt1115 Love this thought—we all learn, and we all share, right? #txeduchat
  87. A1: a curiosity about the world and learning, a love of questions, an ear for actively listening in order to discover more #txeduchat
  88. A2: As an adult learner who helps other adults learn is it different than with <18 humans? #txeduchat
  89. A2: Yes! My 13-yo daughter, too! She told me she thought it was awesome that I was going back to school for my Ed.D. #model #txeduchat
  90. A2: Awesome Q! When u have a partnership in room, Ss know it learning w/them. Model w/inquiry & questions. How can we find out? #txeduchat
  91. I model writing with passion..when you start that looks messy and that is ok #txeduchat
  92. A2: I always tell my students that I don't know everything, but willing to learn as much as I can...#txeduchat
  93. A2 oh my goodness, yes! We learn together. I sit with them with a device and we think out loud. #txeduchat
  94. A1 a the problem with some Ts is that we don't honor Ss natural curiosity. We want them to be curious about what WE r teaching. #txeduchat
  95. #txeduchat - when we react to our own errors we have an opportunity to show that we are LLL w/ a #growthmindset
  96. @shareski I would love to see this somewhere in ALL teachers classroom! #txeduchat
  97. @shareski #txeduchat That would be very daring and it would be exciting to see how all reacted, Ts and Ss.
  98. @shareski That list would be really LONG but really fun to explore with Ss. #txeduchat
  99. Technology makes lifelong learning easier than ever before plus it's TONS of fun. #txeduchat
  100. Entering late, Summer pool time w/kids. Kirsten Wilson, IT coach, Northwest ISD TX, #aspiringadmin #txeduchat
  101. A2: when we talk about PBL I try to emphasize that we don't know the answers to their research questions. It's great! #txeduchat
  102. Q2:Yes, my Ss see me as a learner. They know I'm on twitter & always trying new things! I love 2 share the passion of learning! #txeduchat
  103. A2: all day everyday - I model learning, I show passion for learning and I discuss learning - every day is a learning day #txeduchat
  104. @sharongullett @MrsJones_Merton @shareski #txeduchat A1 Never take status quo as an answer! Always look to learn and make a difference
  105. @shareski I like that with the other idea I've seen of listing books you r reading so they see u as a reader too #txeduchat
  106. A2: Yes! My Ss LOVE to teach me something I didn’t know. It’s like a game. We are NEVER done learning! #txeduchat
  107. @dayankee How many ppl have had the curiosity stomped out of them? How to reignite it? #txeduchat
  108. A2: my students know I'm a lifelong learning because they see making and LEARNING from my mistakes! Not afraid to fail! :-) #txeduchat
  109. @KittyHerbel: A2: Yes! My Ss LOVE to teach me something I didn’t know. It’s like a game. We are NEVER done learning!” #txeduchat
  110. #txeduchat A2 I serve adult health care professionals. My peers + customers see me as curious, fearless (insofar as not minding early fails)
  111. @Angelanix #txeduchat Yes! And we need to give our S the tools to build their own PLNs
  112. A2. It is rare to see higher ed instructors as learners, though. Still lots of lectures. #txeduchat
  113. @DrSharonYoung A2 I like to tell Ss that when they do a PBL project I want to learn something new from them #txeduchat
  114. @daisyray215 I try to always "think-aloud" as we work through looking at a problem/question as well Daisy to model process. #txeduchat
  115. @daisyray215 @shareski saw a school where every teacher posted "I am currently reading..." on the door. #txeduchat
  116. @Think_teach yes, but it is how we react that counts…lead from example. My littles watch and learn everything #txeduchat
  117. @Angelanix Yes it does, sometimes we need our students to show us how to learn with it too.... #txeduchat
  118. @shareski A2 I see all of us as learners. Experts do not exist anymore. The world changes too fast #txeduchat
  119. A2 #txeduchat I think this goes back to "we are no longer the smartest ones in the classrooms"
  120. A2. I liken it to football for some of my Ss. Learning is summer two-a-days. Not Friday night lights. #txeduchat
  121. @whitneykilgore @KittyHerbel love when my Ss day can I show everyone something then just take over. Awesome #txeduchat
  122. #txeduchat A2 Peers, clients know I go far and wide for social learning opps.
  123. A2 T's learn constantly from their S's. The trick is for S's to understand that their opinions/thoughts are valued. #txeduchat
  124. The bests days are when I get to say many times "Wow I did not know that!!" #txeduchat
  125. @clarkmusings you should see me. I'm a constant stream of asking my students how I can improve. #txeduchat #edim516 #ecmp355
  126. A2 students are surprised when they learn I am always reading or tweeting ed stuff. #txeduchat
  127. A2 I believe my Ss (& later my Ts) have seen me as a questioner, someone questing for the elusive Why. In other words, a learner. #txeduchat
  128. Q3 What have you learned this week? How could you share that with others/students? Bonus if it has nothing to do with school #txeduchat
  129. A2: When we start to give up complete control in our classrooms, our Ss see that we are learners too! #txeduchat
  130. A2: it's part of the ongoing conversation... "I learned this____ and I wanted to share____. How do you think this relates to __?" #txeduchat
  131. @daisyray215 @shareski We have conversations of what I am reading often. Especially my passion for non fiction. #txeduchat
  132. @nathan_stevens true, but I find many ts have stopped learning and are overwhelmed w/ new ideas often set in their ways…sad #txeduchat
  133. @shareski that would be refreshing. Seldom see ed pedagogy being modeled in ed classes. #txeduchat
  134. @shareski Wonder drives the learning. Kinders whole world a big wonder. @Wonderopolis Wonder Wall a big ? Mark for learning #txeduchat
  135. A2: When I was a MS science teacher, my Ss knew that I was always experimenting. We collaborated, and they gave honest feedback. #txeduchat
  136. A2 Ss see me as a learner bc I share what I'm learning thru vids,pics &posts.I make PD a big deal.my excitement feeds theirs. #txeduchat
  137. @Tom_Kilgore when everything is "standardized" it's good to model for REAL thinking #txeduchat
  138. A3: I learned how to to build a campfire. My wife taught me, with a whole lot of patience. Talk about a useful skill! #txeduchat
  139. Learning is tough. Cognitive lifting is tiring. Stay a LL learner & I stay empathetic re: struggling learners. #txeduchat
  140. @clarkmusings Sadly, I think this is true. I’m in #highered now, and this is a real problem among my colleagues. #txeduchat
  141. A2: Yes! Each time I assign an individual passion project to my Ss, I do one w/them & we all share our learning & how narratives! #txeduchat
  142. @daisyray215 @Tom_Kilgore Lifelong learners think outside the square and have a lateral frame of mind. They are open to others #txeduchat
  143. @briley8557 hmmm, I'd say the smartest in the room are the ones building capacity in others. #txeduchat
  144. . @shareski A2- I'd take up all 4 walls and down the hall. To teach learners you gotta be a learner. #txeduchat
  145. #txeduchat. It's important to guide students to finding answers to things they wonder about..not just telling them the answer.
  146. Q2: When a teacher allows students to see the her/him as a co-student, this has a powerful & exponential effect on learning #txeduchat
  147. @tracyacramer @nathan_stevens #txeduchat check out "the 4 horsemen of fixed mindset". I totally agree that for Ts this is a nig challenge
  148. .@Tom_Kilgore @daisyray215 the "think aloud" is some of the most powerful dialogue for Ts & Ss... Fishbowl is good too! #txeduchat
  149. A2 I always to make sure to highlight when a S has brought a new idea to light for me. Happens every time we read R&J. #txeduchat
  150. #txeduchat A2 Major takeaway from last 10 months #LowNoCostPD + PLN dialog: teaching/training/instruction begins with empathy.
  151. A3 #txeduchat Never give up in life if there is something you want you have to do it and have the courage to do it differently!
