  • As you can see I spread my interests around. I’m not afraid to say I don’t know. I like asking questions. I’ve been using social networking for about 18months now. I started by trying to find stuff using search and then moved into the social networking, subscribing to information and people and found that it was a great way to learn because you had all these random experiences and people to ask questions of.
  • I think when I first looked into social networking for professional development the hardest thing was knowing who to connect with. That and not being too scared to just jump in and ask stupid questions. Some of these people are my real life people as well, some just online.
  • Sue was probably one of the first really involved and engaged teachers I found who were writing with and about blogging in the primary school.
  • About whatever they are passionate about - as teachers, education professionals, academics and also as people. This is handy because the kids I teach are people and they also have
  • Allison Hall is really into music and I know I can ask her from some good resources - or I can find her bookmarks online and find some great resources.
  • Being connected to people in a professional sense means that I’m able to be a better teacher in many different ways. I understand a wider variety of interests, and even if I don’t understand them I can reach out to my network with questions I could find someone in my network to help me understand bullying, graffiti, brass bands, running, social causes - almost anything I learn more of the things I’m interested in - but I also learn enough about the stuff I don’t know much about to be able to at least say ‘I’ll find out for you’ I find lots of resources I would never have even thought existed.
  • For most of my teaching career I’d been searching for resources. Building word documents with important links. Printing stuff off Search is still a great way to find resources on a specific topic. Tale and the learning fed has lots of stuff that I use regularly. But I also I didn’t want to have to continually visit the sites and blogs I loved in order to keep on top of all the cool new tools that are available. Working with ED/IM kids - they soon get bored of one site and want to move onto the next thing. Once I worked out that other people were doing this for me I immediately jumped on that bandwagon. I wanted whatever they had.
  • I created my own delicious - but mostly I subscribed to other peoples delicious feeds I used twitter - people often posted lots of interesting links or ideas - I really focused on following other teachers, particularly primary teachers because they provided the most directly useful stuff Of course I also subscribed to individual blogs
  • I created my own delicious - but mostly I subscribed to other peoples delicious feeds I used twitter - people often posted lots of interesting links or ideas - I really focused on following other teachers, particularly primary teachers because they provided the most directly useful stuff Of course I also subscribed to individual blogs
  • It was sort of through my love of music that I realised that you could subscribe to websites and have info emailed to you. From then it was just a little work to work out how to subscribe to stuff in other ways that don’t clog up your email.
  • Don’t be ashamed of email - start where you need to and where is useful to you. I started off subscribing to things like edutopia and individual blogs. I still have a couple of blogs - like my mum’s emailed to me so I don’t forget to read them. Itunes - iTunes U has lots of resources, iTunes podcast directory generally has lots of great stuff. I love listening to podcasts. Mostly not education ones - philosophy and music. But there is stuff out there. Check out my blog if you need some ideas. RSS reader - iGoogle, feeddemon etc, but don’t worry if you don’t read it everyday or if you have to clear and start again. I know check this much less regularly but when I do it’s like catching up with old friends - very coo.
  • Being connected to people in a professional sense means that I’m able to be a better teacher in many different ways. I understand a wider variety of interests, and even if I don’t understand them I can reach out to my network with questions I could find someone in my network to help me understand bullying, graffiti, brass bands, running, social causes - almost anything I learn more of the things I’m interested in - but I also learn enough about the stuff I don’t know much about to be able to at least say ‘I’ll find out for you’
  • A place for employers and other teacher to find out about me and contact me A place for me to find other teachers who care about the same isssues as me A place for me to learn about issues that are important A place for me to record ideas and links that are useful to my teaching practic Launched in late 2007 in response to a perceived need for a social networking tool for Australian educators. The vision: A professional hub (social networking site) where Australian educators can create an online professional resume connect with educators who have similar interests share links, news, photos, ideas, opinions Access to me.edu.au is through edna’s Single Sign On Identity – your own space collaboration – find like minded people, communities to join resources – share with others professional presence (PLE) with space to develop your profile and curriculum vitae rewards: build your skills, extend your reputation, find new colleagues & friends Professional learning and networking: Who can you learn from or network with. 4,000 registered users. Many more likely to arrive. Connect via location, interests, shared contacts/colleagues online identity professional online space collaboration and colleagues resource sharing build skills rewards and reputation How this connects with the Digital Education Revolution? Digital footprints: 2007 report, PEW http://www.pewinternet.org/pdfs/PIP_Digital_Footprints.pdf Will come back to this “ Unlike footprints left in the sand at the beach, our online data trails often stick around long after the tide has gone out” “ Among adults who create social networking profiles, transparency is the norm. More than half of all adult internet users have used a search engine to follow others’ footprints. “ addressing digital footprint issues for a. educators with NO digital footprint AND b. educators with multiple footprints or a ‘splattered online identity’
  • A place for employers and other teacher to find out about me and contact me A place for me to find other teachers who care about the same isssues as me A place for me to learn about issues that are important A place for me to record ideas and links that are useful to my teaching practice Launched in late 2007 in response to a perceived need for a social networking tool for Australian educators.

  • Me.edu.au video to help explain.
  • Even if you’ve never used social networking tools or rss before it’s easy to find people with similar interests and share their resources. Let’s find someone useful. Even without signing up it’s easy to use me.edu.au to find people who are interested in the same things as you or who have skills that might help you in your teaching practice. For example a quick search on technology and I find Stu Hasic. He is from Sydney like me and he is interested in Cyber Safety and blogging. I can look through his full profile and resources and find out more about Stu. Just by checking out his profile I can find useful links. Create online professional CV – schools public profiles show your location your interests your edna Groups view all to open up a fuller version of profile
  • Sometimes you may want to send a message - you might have found a colleague you haven’t talked to for a while, you might have an unresolved question you need help with. If you are a member of me.edu.au you can send people messages. The great thing is that don’t need to be nsw based for you to be able to contact them easily. And they set up the email address they connect to so they probably check it more often. In order to send messages you’ll need to sign up to me.edu.au.
  • Being integrated into distributed communities of practice. Me.edu.au allows you to monitor both your interests and the interests and activities of your colleagues. To do this you simple add colleagues and interests to your profile and they’ll appear in the ‘What’s been hapeening’ section tab of your me.edu.au profile.
  • The focus of Communities in me.edu.au is different to edna Groups. The focus is more on social networking and with individuals being able to monitor the activities and interests of others. created from interests in profiles free text titles light-weight no owners
  • So you want to know what something is, eg new technology like twitter Search to see if there’s a community. Check out some of the latest links. Look at the colleagues who are part of that community. Post a question on the whiteboard. Someone will answer you.
  • A blog for every educator in Australia learning reflection links images embed media tags Comments Or you can just add a feed of your external blog.
  • You can see links from other peoples social bookmarking activity but it can also include their twitter activity, blogs and of course all the links and information from the communities of interest you join.
  • If you do already have lots of places that you contribute on the net then it’s a good place to pull them all together.
  • Get people online here, get them to login if they already have an edna SSO login. You may need to problem solve here but hopefully the majority already have everything sorted out
  • Access to me.edu.au is through edna’s Single Sign On. Single Sign On gives users authentication to an increasing range of collaborative tools me.edu.au edna Groups edna short URL edna Lists management
  • Single Sign On is the connector for edna’s Collaborative Tools. It requires a valid email address and a password of your own choosing authentication to me.edu.au edna Groups edna Sandpit edna Lists management edna short URL service
  • The system checks whether you are already registered. Captcha If there’s any chance you are moving/changing email address, perhaps set up a gmail or other for this.
  • Set up your password and your me.edu.au username. Write your password down.
  • Set up your General Profile Note there are some mandatory fields.
  • You will not be able to login until you have confirmed your registration
  • me.edu.au may already know a bit about you from edna Groups
  • Click on the Communities tab and you will see a tag cloud composed from the top 100 Communities. To join one, simply click on the tag, click on the link that says Add this to your interests , and a little box will say that you have been added to the community. You can now leave a message or add a link. You should find that Communities you have joined have been added as interests You may want to add other interests. This will result in a new community being added with you as the only member. Even if you remove yourself the community will remain Save
  • Adding Colleagues is a simple process in the Search box type in the first name of a colleague and you will get a list of people with that first name You can click on the name to see the profile to make sure it is the person you meant to find Click on Add a colleague Alternative searches: use surname, first initial and surname A good way of gathering colleagues is to look at who your friends’ colleagues are. Alternatively, look at the people who belong to communities you have joined.
  • RSS feeds output postings in communities activity in public profile
  • New tools for online groups What people can see about me
  • New tools for online groups
  • You control how much info you push and pull by the things you subscribe to. You control how much you explore and how much you contribute.
  • Many people registered in me.edu.au already have a blog, and will feel that they don’t need another. However the blog on me.edu.au provides a place where people can start blogging
  • Your profile is already set up. Your blog will be part of what people can see about you. It has an RSS feed You can search for the blogs of others
  • blog enables the user to add tags, include images, and people can submit comments for moderation
  • Get people online here, get them to login if they already have an edna SSO login. You may need to problem solve here but hopefully the majority already have everything sorted out
