Multimedia Reflection- My PLN

  1. 1. The Development of a Pre-Service Teachers’ Professional Learning Network Mr. Brent Saccucci on Twitter!
  2. 2. But.. who to follow? • Michele Ford discusses issues related to educational policy studies, specifically in Alberta. Discussing issues from MLA’s, school boards, and professional bodies, Michele is a great PLN resource because of the discussion she facilitates amongst educational stakeholders - all the way to parents and pre-service teachers. As a professional, great to know whats going on behind the scenes in the education world. - St. Albert Public Schools updates everyone from parents to community members to teachers on news, events, and opportunities happening in their school district. This is a great resource for me to have as a hopeful future employee of this board because I get to see an inside look onto whats going on in the district, what they praise, what they stand for, and what issues they find important that maybe I didn’t realize beforehand. Also, it’s great for me to see whats going on in the schools I hope to be teaching at!
  3. 3. One more ‘must have’ resource to follow.. • We Are Teachers has been my biggest and most frequently utilized resource on my PLN thus far because they tweet resources in almost every field. This diverse tweeter has allowed me to explore concepts in Early Childhood Education, Math/Sciences, and PD worldwide. PLUS, they have a huge amount of followers (101,000+) that contribute to their PLN daily. This is such an important resource for me as a beginning teacher because if I need resources for courses I’m teaching outside my area of expertise, I can easily look through their twitter feed to find some, or, tweet them to connect me, OR, look through their followers for someone in the field that can help.
  4. 4. The Development of @VP__Education • As of Nov. 27/13, 156 people/organizations follow me. This includes principals, education organizations, bodies in higher education, and many, many teachers provincially, and a few nationally. I have made 146 tweets about education, technology, policy, and learning. • The next few slides will outline conversations, followers, and tweets about teaching/education that have helped not only my employability, but have grown my TPACK professional development.
  5. 5. Contributions to my PLN Future Employers.. as followers! Future Employers.. as followers! -A huge benefit of my PLN has been the amount of school leaders that have followed me and see my interest in professional development -Now, when it comes time to apply for jobs, I can post my teaching portfolio to my PLN for all these employers to view!
