Challenge Week 4

Well we’ve officially made it to the 4th challenge in our first ever Summer Learning Series!

To say this has been emotional overwhelming, would be an understatement.  I am in complete awe at the amount of people who are choosing to step outside their comfort zones and LEARN!  Like I said when we started this journey, we’re professional students.  If we want to challenge and encourage our students to be continual learners we must do the same!

I know some of these challenges may be uncomfortable, difficult, or down-right hard for some of us.  But nothing easy was ever worth learning.  We know that we learn best through mistakes and failure.  So if there’s parts to these weekly challenges that you find tough or pointless, stick with me!  I promise it’ll all work out!

Watching you guys tweet your learning via the #SummerLS hashtag has been awesome too!  I just love watching the learning unfold and I’ve been learning so much by following the tweets too!  Oh and by the way we’re up to over 1,300 people participating in these challenges WORLDWIDE!  So crazy!

This week’s challenge is another two-parter!

Part 1:

The first challenge is a fun little goofy challenge with some substance behind it.  It’s created by someone I was able to meet for the first time just a few months ago and I can honestly say she’s one of my favorite people and someone I consider a great friend, Jennifer LaGarde.

I don’t wanna give too much away about this challenge, I’ll just let Jennifer explain the challenge and the reasons behind this challenge HERE.

Part 2:

This week’s second challenge comes from one of my all-time favorite bloggers, Pernille Ripp.  This woman is absolutely incredible and I truly look forward to the day when I actually meet her face to face!

You can check out the short challenge video Pernille made HERE.

One of the greatest tools we have at our disposal is reflection.  To actually sit and think.  And to get our thoughts out about our growth and learning.  So like Pernille says in the video above, find a way to reflect this week.  Whether that be to write a blog post, have coffee with a friend, journaling, or just sitting and thinking alone.  The point is, stop and take some time to reflect.

If you’re interested in blogging but don’t even know where to begin I made a quick video HERE that can walk you through how to get a blog set up in just a few easy steps!
