  14. 14. “I have used my PLN to reshape my ever-evolving curriculum. The resources, easy access to information, and connections that I have made using Twitter alone has changed the way I view education on a global scale.

  16. 16. “My PLN has meant that without very much effort, I have help at my fingertips.  If I want more information about anything, I can get it instantaneously, tailored for my specific needs, and there are actual people attached to the information that I could/have/will call if I need help understanding any of it.” @RyanMBurke Ryan Burke Head of Middle School
