The power of the online professional learning network

1,097 views

Published on

Coming to a conference like the annual VATE conference is a great way of learning and becoming inspired about our teaching. We gain ideas, resources and new ways of thinking about our practice in the classroom. But it is only once a year. Over the last few years I have found my professional learning extended by finding a network of enthusiastic and knowledgable teachers and educators from all around the globe who are on hand to give me inspiration and ideas whenever I need it. My new online Professional Learning Network (PLN) is a global network and fluid enough to accommodate learning anytime, anywhere. This workshop will demonstrate the use of nings, blogs, Twitter and diigo as a means to connect with other educators on a global scale and make learning more meaningful. It is for teachers at all levels of experience and all year levels.
