  • 8. Which Tool Have You Found Most Useful?
    • I have found that the most useful tool in my PLN is Delicious. I have found so many websites and resources that have really been useful in the classroom. I find that so much time is spent sorting through the information on the web. It is wonderful to search a topic and find relevant and useful websites, resources and information.
  • 9. My Successes & Challenges
    • Sucesses:
    • Creating and managing my PLN when the task seemed so daunting in the beginning.
    • Finding out that I am more technologically knowledgeable than I first thought.
    • Finding, using, and sharing the knowledge and resources now available to me though the use of my PLN.
    • Challenges:
    • At first, just navigating my way through all of the new tools at my disposal
    • Now, peeling myself away from all of the new tools.
  • 10. Moodle
    • Social Media For Educator’s was my first experience with Moodle and I was very impressed. Moodle was easy to use and navigate. I enjoy online learning and especially like being able to work at my own pace. The course was interesting and I was introduced to many resources and tools that I will be using in my classroom. I am excited to share these resources and tools with my students and other educators.
