Connecting Live Online with our Personal Learning Networks
by Vance Stevens

This 2-hour workshop will introduce the concept and importance of Personal Learning Networks and suggest ways that educators can engage in almost unlimited opportunities for professional development online. One such possibility is participation in weekly Learning2gether events (L2g) coordinated by the presenter. This workshop introduces two tools used frequently in L2g and shows participants how they can use them in their professional development. The first of these is Blackboard Collaborate (available on grant to L2g participants) and the second is Google+ Hangouts. The workshop will walk participants through the process of setting up and conducting events using each tool. Topics include using social media to advertise your events, how to moderate sessions using each tool, and how to archive them. Participants will learn how to stream Hangouts so that they can be attended by many more than the ten allowed in the Hangout itself at any one time.
