I recently completed a 4-month contract as a technology consultant at two adult education centres. I loved it. Throughout the whole experience I felt this is what I am meant to be doing. The focus on tech reached out to my inner geek and the focus on relationship reached in towards my personal ethics of care.
The other day I was doing some thinking about the past 4 months and decided to put it on paper (so to speak) and to frame it within a guiding question. The question I came up with was:
How can the way I help other educators affect their practice?
I used Dabbleboard to help draw it out and came up with this (click to enlarge)
I think the relationship part is very important. If you can develop a positive relationship with people they will trust you and more be open to learning.
I agree, Elona! (I hope that finally replying to your comment 2 months later hasn’t hampered our relationship!)
