Tech Tuesday – 11.19.13 Personal Learning Networks: Why and How?

On Sunday, 11.24.13, I am presenting on how to create and manage a Personal Learning Network (PLN) with Amy Oliveri at NYSCATE.  I firmly believe that you can’t continue to teach and be relevant without some sort of a PLN. The amount of information available is truly transformative for educators. You are doing yourself and your students a disservice by not investing some time and energy into creating a PLN. Here is why,

  • It’s personal to you.
    Your PLN is made up of information and people that have meaning to you and to what you do.
  • It’s free.
    It costs you and your school or district nothing.
  • It’s available when you are.
    No scheduling issues to contend with EVER.

Think of your PLN like a phenomenal conference that is always relevant, continually evolving, and growing.

Thanks to Larry Ferlazzo for creating and sharing a phenomenal guide for helping teachers create a PLN.
