Our school district is fortunate to be part of a new, exciting organization created by the State of New Jersey’s Office of School Innovation. Called innovateNJ, the initial community consists of 10 like-minded school districts working together “in ways that produce replicable and adaptable innovative practices.” It’s exciting to be a part of a community of fellow educators willing to collaborate about next-generation instructional practices. Personally, my PLN has grown tremendously since joining the organization and I look forward to what the future holds.
At 8:00PM EST tomorrow, November 20th, the innovateNJ community will be hosting their first twitter chat about innovation in schools. Please join the chat using the hashtag #innovateNJ. During the chat we’ll also share information about how other New Jersey school districts can join our organization. The next round of applications will become available this week. At the least, please join our chat on 11/20–we’re talking innovation!
