15MINPLN Presentation

3,982 views

Published on

This presentation demonstrates how educators can develop a productive online presence to help nurture their own professional development. You will be introduced to effective and progressive steps towards building a Personal Learning Network (PLN). Techniques such as social bookmarking, blogging, and using twitter will be explored. All of these allow educators to tap into immensely powerful networks of like-minded educators while building a sustainable and rewarding online portfolio of their key professional interests.

It follows a series of blog posts (which inevitably will need updating) that may be accessed (in reverse order) here: http://opengecko.com/tag/15minpln/

  10. 10. Prepare to Breathe In<br />Start a list. A rough map of the things you want to gain your professional development in.<br />Here are some ideas:<br />Subjects / Disciplines / Curricular Areas you are interested in. For me, currently, that could primarily be Geography, Economics and Theory Of Knowledge.<br />General interests in education. For me that would be things like educational technology (edtech), student voice, leadership, the very broad notion of twenty first century education, intercultural education, and self-led professional development.<br />Specific interests linked to the above: e.g. for me, a few examples include: use of Google Apps in the classroom, use of Infographics in learning and ways of disseminating (edtech) initiatives within a school.<br />
  11. 11. Prepare to Breathe Out<br />List the aspects of your role as an educator which you could share with a highly-connected international community of like-minded educators. This could be something you consider yourself to know quite a bit about and already have resources, tips, methods, thoughts to share on. Or, it could be something you want to gradually become more proficient at, and are prepared to share what you are learning as you do so. For example, I am learning about developing a Personal Learning Network (PLN)<br />

  14. 14. What will be your ‘avatar’ image? An icon? A picture of you? <br />Will you state where you work? Your position? How will that reflect on where you work? What might your colleagues / managers think of this association?<br />Where you live?<br />Will you make references to family? Chances are that some of the social networking tools you will be using will at some point involve invitations from / to family members and friends – is this OK with you?<br />Will you reference previous employment?<br />Do you want some kind of ‘tagline’? <br />What are your interests? How can you be succinct about these? As a guideline: when you set up a twitter account, you get to write a bio in 160 characters.Try it.<br />
