#leadlap Archive

Our chat will focus on the idea that we can lead and make positive change from any position in our school systems. Leadership is not about a title, it is a way of thinking and acting.

    #LeadLAP Dave in Lloydminster Alberta! Thanks for adding to our learning!
  • TeacherRunner42 Oct 7 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    a1: Because of this phrase in red. change is difficult. #leadlap
    In reply to @RACzyz
  • mrbgilson Oct 7 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    A1: Comfort in the formula. Old comfy boxes are easy to fit in than shiny new ones sometimes. #LeadLAP #4OCF
  • RACzyz Oct 7 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    Q1 is live! Why does Bad PD exist even if we know better at this point? #4OCF #LeadLAP
  • JayBilly2 Oct 7 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    A1: District initiatives and mandates and let's face it, some still need to be motivated to keep learning. #LeadLAP
  • JennSagendorf Oct 7 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    Jenn in CA peeking in again this week. I always hate cutting out early, but...happy to grab the first half! Love #LeadLAP
  • MrCharlesMartin Oct 7 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    A1: Because the one size fits all approach of PD is simply not the right approach. #LeadLAP
  • teachermike72 Oct 7 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    A1: because often admins feel like they have to do it and don't have time (or perspective) to make it interesting. #4OCF #leadLAP
  • coacheagan Oct 7 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    A1: unfortunately lack of taking time to intentionally plan good PD is still an issue we see. Taking the time to plan is necessary #leadlap
  • AmyLIllingworth Oct 7 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    A1: Some people call staff meetings "PD", sharing items that could be shared electronically. We need to redefine PD for some! #LeadLAP
  • shirky17 Oct 7 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    yeah, I'm a little behind #LeadLAP
    In reply to @averyteach

    We are happy to have you as long as you can be here, Jenn. #LeadLAP
    In reply to @JennSagendorf
  • rokstar19 Oct 7 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    A1 because some admin feel the need to meet just for the sake of meeting, because that's what they're admin did #LeadLAP
  • amandabethallen Oct 7 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    #LeadLAP
  • whiteeducator Oct 7 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    A1: Time... We're not taking the time to differentiate or give choice because that takes more time, effort, planning, & listening. #leadlap
  • burgessdave Oct 7 @ 10:40 AM EDT
    Happy to have you for whatever time you can be here, Jenn! #LeadLAP
    In reply to @JennSagendorf

    Purposeful planning is critical- for teachers' lessons and PD with adult learners! #LeadLAP

      A1: unfortunately lack of taking time to intentionally plan good PD is still an issue we see. Taking the time to plan is necessary #leadlap
  • MikeUbbens Oct 7 @ 10:40 AM EDT
    A1 Burnt out leaders, or leaders who are over tasked is just a start. Maybe they are answering the wrong questions. #LeadLAP
  • SteinbrinkLaura Oct 7 @ 10:40 AM EDT
    A1: Traditionsare hard to break, and some leaders don’t have the support or enough gumption to break the mold. #4OCF #LeadLAP
  • fourmonkeypress Oct 7 @ 10:40 AM EDT
    A1. The one size fits all method is easy to orchestrate. Now that we know better we can do better! 💪🏽 #LeadLAP
  • Miss_B_Teach Oct 7 @ 10:40 AM EDT
    A1: I think it's because we sometimes get stuck in our ways and are uncomfortable with change 😬 gotta be bold! #leadlap #4OCF
  • RACzyz Oct 7 @ 10:40 AM EDT
    YES! If it is going to be read to staff, it belongs in an email! #4OCF #LeadLAP
    In reply to @AmyLIllingworth

    #LeadLAP #4OCF Thanks for the shout out @amandabethallen! I grew up a bit SE of Edmonton!

      Good morning! Middle School AP from MO. ❤️ all the Canadians--my dad's family is from outside Edmonton and I ❤️ visiting! #leadlap
  • kylelaurie Oct 7 @ 10:40 AM EDT
    A1 Sadly it can be hard to change the culture of set and gets. And...although we know better, we haven’t changed everyone’s heart. #LeadLAP
  • tammy_black Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
    A1 As leaders we're driving strategic initiatives/goals rather than finding out what faculty need/want and designing for that #LeadLAP
  • whiteeducator Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
    A1: Some leaders think they know what their staff needs (and refuses to listen/trust what staff says they need). #leadlap
  • averyteach Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
    A1: Because not all “know better.” Personalized PD also means the participant has to take some ownership as well. 😊 #LeadLAP
  • mrbgilson Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
    A1: Leadership needs to develop trust in those they lead. This is not often an overnight process. #LeadLAP
  • AmyLIllingworth Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
    Time is always an issue, but we all have the same 24 hours in each day. How we use our time matters! #LeadLAP
    • whiteeducator Oct 7 @ 10:39 AM EDT
      A1: Time... We're not taking the time to differentiate or give choice because that takes more time, effort, planning, & listening. #leadlap
  • MikeUbbens Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
    The curse of "past practice"!!! #LeadLAP
  • GambillJulie Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
    A1: We have old school admin who believe direct instruction still exists. Archaic ways to get the point across. #LeadLAP
  • JayBilly2 Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
    I get this and I feel the same but to continually bash admin doesn't help. We need to give them better ways and share ideas #LeadLAP
    • rokstar19 Oct 7 @ 10:39 AM EDT
      A1 because some admin feel the need to meet just for the sake of meeting, because that's what they're admin did #LeadLAP
  • R_CILR Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
    A1: Because we may know what we know now, but things change, so we need to stay current or ahead. #leadlap
  • wonder2wisdom Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
    A1: #LeadLAP #4OCF Ugh. Time and planning for me. Seems like obstacles find me when I'm planning something new.
    In reply to @RACzyz
  • jc_sotallaro Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
    A1: Because "it has always been done that way!" Paperwork or it didn't happen. Time to take a long look in the mirror. #LeadLap #4OCF
  • burgess_shelley - Moderator Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
    A1: Don't ask your teachers to plan relevant and engaging lessons if you won't take the time to do the same with PD. #LeadLAP #4OCF
  • drjonesie17 Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
    A1: Unfortunately, I believe time constraints are at the forefront and maybe it's too difficult and against the status quo #LeadLAP
  • sheehyrw Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
    A1. Even though some know its bad, they are scared to change it. We need to run PD as we run our classrooms. PD should be modeling. #leadlap
  • LSR_DrMom Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
    A1: That old saying "We've always done it that way" and fear of change by some fearing lack of support. #LeadLAP #4OCF
  • whiteeducator Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
    A1: Some leadership is scared to give up control and let it's staff lead/staff/model/plan. We need to listen & trust more! #leadlap
  • EdLog411 Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
    Good morning #LeadLAP. Vicki, VP from BC jumping in a bit late
  • coacheagan Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
    So agree! Business meetings are NOT PD #leadlap
    In reply to @AmyLIllingworth
  • tracyacramer Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
    A1 IMHO many prod leaders are not on twitter or on point w/ what team is looking for or needed. Get on twitter people! #LeadLAP
  • fourmonkeypress Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
    Convos like this help to push the pendulum and change minds/hearts #Leadlap
    In reply to @kylelaurie
  • MrNasife Oct 7 @ 10:42 AM EDT
    A1: Some still like the old way - one presenter, everyone else listens. Some still behind on how tech and PLNs can improve PD. #LeadLAP
  • drjonesie17 Oct 7 @ 10:42 AM EDT
    Exactly! We set the models #LeadLAP
    In reply to @burgess_shelley
  • JennSagendorf Oct 7 @ 10:42 AM EDT
    A1: Presenters don't see it as bad. Lack of understanding. Don't take time to make it not stink. We're too polite to call them out! #LeadLAP
  • AmyLIllingworth Oct 7 @ 10:42 AM EDT
    As you build trust you can build capacity and let others share in the PD! #LeadLAP
    • mrbgilson Oct 7 @ 10:41 AM EDT
      A1: Leadership needs to develop trust in those they lead. This is not often an overnight process. #LeadLAP
  • LiaGyore Oct 7 @ 10:42 AM EDT
    A1: I see it coming! T mindset needs to shift as well. #LeadLAP
  • teachermike72 Oct 7 @ 10:42 AM EDT
    TBF emails can be missed too easily as well. Esp if you get a LOT of them. #4OCF #LeadLAP

  • MikeUbbens Oct 7 @ 10:42 AM EDT
    It just takes one person to start a shift in culture! #LeadLAP
    In reply to @kylelaurie
  • JoanJtracy Oct 7 @ 10:42 AM EDT
    A1. PD days are when all are “there” so tempting to make them give information days instead of learning days #LeadLAP
  • RebeccaFeathers Oct 7 @ 10:42 AM EDT
    A1: Rebecca from DE jumping on the ☠️🚢! PD is a passion of mine- but it is not everyone's. #LeadLAP
  • averyteach Oct 7 @ 10:42 AM EDT
    I think the big one is time...I don’t think they intentionally try to make it un-interesting. #LeadLAP
    In reply to @teachermike72
  • whiteeducator Oct 7 @ 10:42 AM EDT
    Totally agree - I often think we use this as an excuse. #LeadLAP
    In reply to @AmyLIllingworth
  • HeculuckDave Oct 7 @ 10:42 AM EDT
    A1 Perhaps T's are overwhelmed by available PD, we have left teaching reflection out of the picture. We don't know what we need.#LeadLAP
  • jc_sotallaro Oct 7 @ 10:42 AM EDT
    Yes! I say this every year! #LeadLAP #4OCF
  • bbray27 Oct 7 @ 10:42 AM EDT
    A1: Hi @RACzyz need to educate admin on what is good/bad PD. I get asked to do a "sit & get" pres all the time. I have to say NO #leadlap
  • fourmonkeypress Oct 7 @ 10:42 AM EDT
    Yes!!! Walk the walk. #LEADlap
  • HarveyAlvy1 Oct 7 @ 10:42 AM EDT
    A1 Great Q.Raises issue: Wh is bad PD? Is it nt personalizing for T?Is it sit & get? 4 me it's missing:Teaching & Learning, and S. #LeadLAP
  • MikeUbbens Oct 7 @ 10:43 AM EDT
    Time is a big challenge. When that become the case, we have to evaluate how we are delegating. #LeadLAP
    In reply to @drjonesie17
  • AmyLIllingworth Oct 7 @ 10:43 AM EDT
    I think that's why some people still share that stuff in meetings- people don't read all emails/ memos. But we need a better way! #LeadLAP
    In reply to @teachermike72, @RACzyz
  • KatieJMcNamara Oct 7 @ 10:43 AM EDT
    A1 Bad PD is easy to prep and easy for a checklist. Yet, lacks value, honor, respect, and purpose. #leadlap
  • tammy_black Oct 7 @ 10:43 AM EDT
    So interesting how we also hear about time constraints from faculty. Reality is we'll never have enough time. #LeadLAP
    In reply to @drjonesie17
  • teachermike72 Oct 7 @ 10:43 AM EDT
    No, of course not. But they may consider PD to be hoop jumping, just another task to be checked off a list. #LeadLAP
    In reply to @averyteach
  • mjjohnson1216 Oct 7 @ 10:43 AM EDT
    A1. ..since they have always done it that way it is easier than trying something new. #LeadLAP

    They can be just ask @RACzyz #leadLAP
    In reply to @coacheagan, @AmyLIllingworth, @RACzyz
  • jess_bonin Oct 7 @ 10:43 AM EDT
    A1: presenters need to know their audience and what they want and need, #LeadLAP
  • RACzyz Oct 7 @ 10:43 AM EDT
    Time should not be an excuse! Need to make the time we have more meaningful! https://t.co/2KTX89sB3v #4OCF #LeadLAP
  • traceymikos Oct 7 @ 10:43 AM EDT
    A1: Bad PD exists for many reasons...not knowing audience, unprepared, not meaningful to participants, missing that wow factor. #leadlap
  • bmilla84 Oct 7 @ 10:43 AM EDT
    A1: Complacency! Unfortunately, some are content w/ doing PD the way it's always been done. There needs to be a shift! #LeadLAP
  • averyteach Oct 7 @ 10:43 AM EDT
    Asking the wrong questions-that is an interesting perspective. Tell us more what you mean by that! #LeadLAP

    Q2 is coming up in 1 minute! #4OCF #LeadLAP
  • DrPenK Oct 7 @ 10:44 AM EDT
    A1: Not recognizing the needs of the staff & seeking input. This leads to a one size fits all approach instead of differentiating #LeadLAP
    In reply to @RACzyz
  • sheehyrw Oct 7 @ 10:44 AM EDT

      Such value in seeing the T next door! The logistics of in house staff learning walks are a challenge I want to overcome! #LeadLap

    @tamaraletter Check this out; it's a MUST read. I kept wishing I'd have had it when my own children were younger. #leadlap

    If you keep this up, you may just convince me to be less insecure. Someone is quite persuasive. #leadlap

    Thank you, @RACzyz for hosting #LeadLap this morning. I'm all excited about sharing ways to have professional learning go ROGUE
  • whiteeducator Oct 7 @ 11:29 AM EDT
    I disagree. Our staff is thrilled that we trust them to lead, share, & own their learning. We can model by having our own PLC. #LeadLAP
