Thanks to an infographic I found on Twitter, you can transform your teaching by just meeting these 30 easy goals. I watch social media closely and it's my job to share some of the hot topics on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and other outlets that teachers, principals, students, and parents are contributing.
So what are these 30 goals you need in order to transform your teaching? An infographic I found on Twitter lists all 30 of them. The mastermind behind these 30 goals is none other than SimpleK12 trainer and education star, Shelly Terrell. She posted an infographic, created by Slyvia Duckworth, on her Twitter account that lists all 30 goals. You can see the list below.
You can break these goals down into basic categories. First are the student-based goals. These goals focus on improving the classroom for the students. A few examples of Terrell's student-based goals are to “give students reign,” “show them how to navigate the web intelligently,” and “make it fun.” The other goals are teacher-based. Those may be broken down into further groups. One such group involves creating a digital presence (that's actually one of the goals!), others are related to those such as “reflect through a blog” and “join an online educator community and develop a P.L.N. (personal learning network).” Other goals revolve around recognizing what you've done right such as “envision your greatness” and “celebrate your achievements.” Another group deals with allowing and even encouraging change to liven things up such as “re-evaluate value” and “shake things up.” All 30 of these goals are worth checking out.
Have you taken Shelly Terrell's 30 goal challenge yet? Are there goals you'd like to add? Have you ever completed one of these 30 things and seen a difference in your teaching or classroom?
