Guest Blog, with Dr. Julie C. Thompson, Biology Teacher at Allendale Columbia School

One of my goals every year is to attempt to get teachers more connected with the outside world and create a PLN (Personal Learning Network). I really like this Will Richardson, @willrich45, video and how he describes the importance of a PLN.

Creating a PLN, in my opinion, is the ultimate way to personalize professional growth. I am including a link to a blog post by Allendale Columbia School Biology Teacher, Dr. Julie C. Thompson. Julie details the “Upgrades” to her teaching and how she came to realize the importance of connecting to the world outside of her classroom. I am very impressed with her willingness to look beyond what she has always done and begin to “Upgrade” her classroom environment. Kudos to Dr. Thompson!

  1. And here I thought you were going to talk about your Prized, Loaded Nachos. Sorry, different PLN.
