  • If they don’t work at school –o.k lots of other tools to use and these
  • Looking at tapping into people who can support our needs that don’t exist in our schools or immediate environment. There may be PDHPE teachers around the state who can support and share resources with me that are relevant to me and align with my teaching style, philosophy and student needs. How many people do we currently share resources with? Have deep conversations with around teaching and learning? There are likely to be teachers sitting with us today who may be a great future resource for you. Different for everyone.We will look at 3 tools today but it is important to understand the concept also. More about what the tools allow us to do than the tools themselves and there are lots of tools similar to these.
  • Hundreds of great sites out there but can’t keep checking for new content. RSS lets you subscribe to them so any new content comes to you. Thousands of great sites. Can’t keep checking – get them to bring new content to you.
  • When teachers ask – how do you have time to find all these things – I don’t they come to me. Key is finding the sites that have the good stuff – refine over time –don’t need them all now. Will grow and change over time.
  • Find great sites and share them with others. When you save bookmarks on your computer they are available to you on that computer only. Save on the web and available to everyone, anytime with internet access.
  • Feel free to wait if unsure – easy to set up later.
  • Start here and explore tags at the side to find a few things to save.
  • Hard to explain – facebook status update but no facebook to go with it. Bare bones sharing. Educators sharing lots of great resources. People who used to share with blogs 0 a lot are using twitter now. Resources from site above.
