  • This is the pressie that underscored/drove my little hour at the Virtual Technology Conference (http://moodle.esc11.net/vtc/) put on by the Texas Education Service Center Region XI November 9-12. The full recorded presentation is archived at the site but access may be limited. Nevertheless, I offer this littlel PowerPoint as a trove of resources especially valuable to educators who may not understand the power of the PLN, the Professional/Personal Learning Network.
