    Web2.0 tools – web2.0 can be a bit of a controversial term, however I’ve found it a good heuristic to explain the new possibilities we have available to us to connect with people, information and learning. We’ve gone from a 1.0 world, where the information published was by a small group, for mass consumption. Information was static, to this 2.0 environment where anyone can communicate, connect, create content, collaborate & contribute to the conversation…

    Unfortunately this also leads to our challenge…

    Unfortunately this also leads to our challenge…
  • It’s overwhelming. With so much information, tools & people out there, how do we start?
  • Your pln becomes your filter to safely take a drink from thmake sense of that fire hydrant
  • Alec Couros very popular depiction of Typical teacher network – we’ve been talking about the changing role of teacher in 21st c
    But perhaps this should be….

    Unfortunately this also leads to our challenge…
  • It’s personal

  • Form groups around interests
  • Activity 2
  • Tools of a PLN to make connections, find artefacts & learn from, converse with people
    Delicious, Netvibes, Twitter, Flickr, Wikis (in all shapes & forms), Blogs (in all shapes & forms), Slideshare
    Google Docs

    I use Twitter as the backbone of my PLN – all of the signals go through there, but then get passed on to where they need to go

    Question often asked: how much can you learn in 140 characters (study last week, facebook & activity done was better for you then the short 140 character messages which won’t stick). When you get on , you’ll be amazed at how profound people can be in 140 characters, but real strength is that those 140 characters can contain a link…

    Also those 140 can contain a hashtag and that can link a stream of messages together…. And now…..
  • We have a conversation, a live streaming, many to many conversation (as we’ve been having here at eFest). If you’ve been following the twitter stream through the monitors

    3rd party tools like tweetdeck make these conversations more visible
    Twitter as the staff room or the coffee room. (it’s ok to miss a conversation)
  • Activity 2
  • Delicious
    Outboard brain – filing cabinet
    User labels for own meaning making & network meaning making
  • delicious
  • Activity 2
  • Next PLN tool is Blogs – slower immediacy – obvioulsy more depth, more room for reflection, explanation than twitter
    But I don’t get overwhelmed by blog posts – I don’t feel like I have to visit each blog of interest every day and read every single post. Instead I collect all the headlines like this in an RSS reader and then read what I want to read
    Again, see I’ve personalised it – it only contains articles that could be of interest to me. But I will read those that ARE of interest
