  8. 8. How to get started? (get connected) 1. Allocate yourself 15 -30 mins each day for your own PD and/or time to go online 2. Consider your purpose, why are you doing this? 3. Analyse your willingness to ‘be there’ – be seen, heard, read, commented on and decide how open or private you want to be. 4. Choose an online persona (separate the professional from the personal) eg Moodleman, whereisdot 5. Talk to your friends/colleagues re their online spaces and identities so you can connect to them online. 6. Do an online challenge – 30 day blog, 100 day photo, 23 things.

  17. 17. Stephen's Web [CHAT] [DISCUSS] [SEARCH] [MOBILE] [ABOUT] [Archives] [OPTIONS] OLDaily by Stephen Downes November 16, 2009 How to become part of a blogging ecosystem? So often, people create a blog, write a few posts,, and then wonder why they haven't attracted any readers (or they create a Facebook or twitter account, write a few posts, and wonder why they don't have any followers). To become somebody who is followed and read, it is necessary to become a part of the ecosystem. This in turn requires reading other people, commenting on their sites and participating in discussions, responding and reacting when people comment on your comments, and spreading the message beyond the confines of your blog (or social network) account. Lilia Efimova, Mathemagenic, November 16, 2009 [Link] [Tags: Twitter, Books, Networks, Web Logs] [Comment]
  18. 18. And...ask people to join you.  Gathering of Hawaii Learning Colleagues: My wife and I will be heading to Hawaii for 10 days this Friday, for a combination of vacation and connection with some colleagues.

  26. 26. Keeping track of it all! 1. Create a PLE for yourself to use as a launching pad for all your online spaces/activities 2.

Download or Save the most critical information you’ve posted in an offline space 5. Develop a routine for ‘being online’

  43. 43. A Quick Summary  Wiki (Wikispaces) A wiki is a program that allows users to work together to build, organise and edit a webpage. You don’t need to be a multimedia guru to use a wiki. Some of the better known examples are Wikipedia, Wetpaint and Wikispaces. Social Bookmarking (Delicious) Social bookmarking e.g. delicious is a way to store, organise and share your favourite internet pages. Using this tool, you can access your favourite web pages from any computer that has internet access. Blog (Blogger) A blog is a webpage that functions as a diary or journal. It can be used to record activity or reflect on experiences and as such is a valuable learning tool. For example: edublogs, blogger Micro-blogging (Twitter) users send and read each others' text updates (tweets) which are no more than 140 characters in length.
  44. 44. And some more…  Online Photo Repository & Slide Show Sharing (Flickr/Slideshare) These tools make it easy to share resources such as photos and slide shows with your students and fellow professionals. For Example: flickr and slideshare (like ppt). Personal Learning Environments (iGoogle) Personal Learning Environments are tools that enable individuals to manage the spaces they use for their own learning (i Google). Discussion Forums Asynchronous postings and replies often displayed in chronological order. VOIP (Skype) Computer based voice and text communication – to other computers and to landlines/mobile phones
  45. 45. And even more!  Virtual classrooms (Elluminate, Live Classroom, Centra, Connect) Online room which has multiple communication tools built in – voice, text, whiteboard, video, emoticons and can be recorded. Video Websites (Youtube, Teachertube) Online website where you can view, upload and comment on videos. Social Networking Sites (Ning, Facebook) Hosts and connects individuals through providing individual web pages, communication tools and a wide range of add on applications. Voice Tools (eg emails) Very similar to text emails but using voice. Messages are recorded and played back by the recipient
