The idea of a Professional Learning Community, a PLC, is awesome.
I want to sit with other professionals and participate in critical conversations around student work, achievement, and my personal practice.
But that doesn’t always happen.
Maybe people are particularly open about their use of educational technology in these groups, but I am hearing some unexpected things.
What are you supposed to do when a PLC becomes a place where you document the meeting more than you concentrate on teaching and learning? Are PLCs becoming a compliance piece for teachers in stead of a professional growth opportunity? How might that ultimately impact students Look around, these are the stakeholders to convince.
