Let's get connected! What's a PLN and how can I get started?
Pinterest- It is a great way to find, share, and organize fantastic teaching ideas and resources. How could you use pinterest to enhance you PLN? Many school districts use shared boards to connect teachers and share resources or ideas. One way we could use pinterest on our campus would be to set up shared boards for our PLCs. Each PLC could have a board where ideas, resources, videos could be shared easily across the campus.
Twitter- Twitter is an awesome free resource that teachers can use to connect globally. You can participate in twitter chats related to certain topics or simply lurk and observe all that occurs. You can really discover some awesome ideas and great professional development at your own convenience.
