Personal Learning Networks
A Journey into Unfamiliar yet Interesting Territory...
Benefits to Participating in PLN's
Teachers vs. Students
How teachers and students view reaching out through social networking.
The fundamental key to success in today's 21st century classrooms.
Popular way to communicate online...I have now become a teacher who "tweets".
So...I have joined PLNs..what now???
My long term goals with my PLN are simple...I would like to become more than an observer. I hope to become more of a contributor of my own ideas and suggestions. Even though it is easy to post in these forums, I am still a bit apprehensive. In time I hope to develop the necessary skills to become a prolific "poster", collaborator, and communicator on these networks. It is going to take some time and practice.
The groups that I tend to prefer are Pinterest (which I use professionally and personally...lots of great recipes, crafting ideas, etc.) , the Science wiki, and my Edmodo blogging groups. I have been participating in these groups for some time now, so I guess I like them best because of familiarity. With all that said, I wouldn't trade my "real life" co-workers for anything. They have been so instrumental to not only my professional success but are great friends ,too. Even though a plethora of networks are available, collaborating with my colleagues is still what I gravitate to. :)
