How to find your way around this ning

Here's a guide to the links at the top of this page:

There are several tabs at the top of this page linking to IB resources:  "Sharing PYP practice".  Clicking there will take you to a blog from the IB PYP office intended for "Sharing examples of what PYP implementation looks like in IB World schools" Visit this new initiative from the PYP, leave a comment, and subscribe to the RSS feed. The "Primary Years Program" tab takes you to a blog from the IB PYP Development team; and the "IBO in Practice" tab takes you to online issues of a newsletter from the IB for educators. The "IB Global Engage" tab opens an IB webpage "which supports members of the IB community, and particularly teachers, in engaging with our global world."

When you click the Photos tab, you'll go to the Photos page for this ning. Hover your mouse over the Photos tab, and you'll see a link to a group on Flickr called "Illustrating the PYP". You're invited to join the group there, and post your photos.There's also a link to the Visible Thinking Group on Flickr, and to the Librarian Edge page on Flickr.

Hover your mouse over the Nings tab; you'll see links to other nings of interest to PYP people: the PYP Group on the Flat Classrooms ning, (started by Leigh Newton),  Library 2.0, and Teacher LibrarianTalkabout Primary Languages (which is now a wiki, not a ning), Art Education 2.0K12 Online Conference, and Classroom 2.0 (a huge education ning, with more than 50,000 members, and 660 Groups!)

Hover your mouse over the Netvibes tab; you'll see a link to our PYP Threads Netvibes page of PYP Threads members' schools' websites.

The Diigo Group tab takes you to our home page at the social bookmark site Diigo.

The PYP Threads Daily tab is visible to members only. When you click on the tab, a new web page will open, and you'll see a newspaper-style page which organizes links shared on Twitter by PYP Threads members into an easy to read newspaper-style format. 

In the left side bar, you'll find the RSS feed from our Diigo bookmarks page, a links lists of blogs and photo groups of PYP Threads people (let me know if you have a blog, photo gallery, video site, start page, etc., that you'd like linked here), and a feed of the Tweets of PYP folks who have listed Twitter accounts in their Profile Information. You can see the full page at Twitter.

PYP evaluation

For the first time, I am at a school where I led the school,through a successful PYP verification visit. We are now, 3 years later due our Evaluation visit. I would like to hear from people who have been at the same school and been through a verification visit and an evaluation. What did you learn? What journey did you go on! And how have things changed for you?
