As part of professional learning at CBE’s summer literacy sessions and at various schools, I had many opportunities to dialogue with colleagues and consider: How are we designing learning spaces to amplify literacy learning? Using loose parts teachers explored the ‘Cave, Campfire, and Watering Hole Theory’ to prototype classroom spaces and engage in conversation about how we might use space to impact student learning.
I admit, I was a Twitter fan before but now I am even more convinced of the power this tool has to connect learners and make thinking visible. What did I learn today? I learned that while I cannot always see the continuation and impact of professional learning face-to-face, digital spaces offer great opportunities to build community, invite collaboration, and accelerate our collective impact.

I’m wondering how might 'Everything I need to know... I learned in Kindergarten' bring more joy to all classrooms?
