Why do you connect?

What do you connect with?

Personal Learning Network (PLN)
… a useful term
“everything & everyone that you look to when you need to know
something about being a teacher”
Isn’t that obvious? …
The more you put in, the more you get out
Not all PLNs are equal!
Strategy matters
“I just google when I need to know something”
Compared to…
Socialisation into the profession
Practical help
Convene relationships
Support for reflection
Provision of feedback
Modelling of practice
Kinds of support you’ll find online
Components of a PLN
Email contacts
Chat rooms
Webinars
Blogs
Social media
TeachConnect
www.TeachConnect.edu.au
Learning to ask!
“The more you ask, the more you get”
“There is no down side to asking”
An online community
to support
pre-service teachers in
the transition through
practicum and into
early career.
What is
TeachConnect?
• Teaching is often a very isolated
career
• Collaboration can lead to better
outcomes
• Beginning teachers feel
unsupported
• There are gaps in support
• Online support can be improved
Why?
TeachConnect?
A space for deep reflection upon
teaching practice.
Pre-service and Early-career
teachers are mentored by
experienced teachers.

One of the things I've found is that if
any one of a group of people with
similar problems asks a question
there's a good chance that the
question will reflect some of the
thinking of their peers.
- Myles Horton
