Collaborative social networks allow educators to create online communities that support their personal and professional learning. Whether your personal learning network is overflowing or just starting to grow, this session will help you to refine your network to best suit your learning needs. Naomi will lead you to interesting people who advocate for the effective use of technology to improve teaching and learning, while supporting a 21st century skills teaching and learning environment. We will discuss tips and tricks to leverage the potential of these networks and provide resources to help attendees set up their own networks. Participants will gain hands-on experience using social communication and collaboration media tools such as Adobe Connect, Twitter, Intel® Engage, Educators PLN Ning, back channel chats, and social bookmarking tools to build professional learning and social networks to lead effectively in your school district or educational organization.
