  9. 9. My Personal Experience <ul><ul><li>I really enjoyed creating my Ning and my Ainimoto Video.  I think Ainimoto would be a great tool for kids to use when working on a project or lesson.  I feel Ning will be useful to myself in building connections with other professionals and/or professional organizations to keep me current on the new trends in education. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The most challenging site for me to keep up with is Twitter.  I find that following so many people makes it difficult to keep up with everyone's tweets.  I do feel that this will be useful when in need of a certain educational idea or creative way to teach a skill children are having difficulty learning. </li></ul></ul>
