Humans: We Think


The networked teacher

The Networked Teacher

A Personal Learning Network (PLN) is a dynamic, interactive collection of resources that extends beyond the classroom.  The elements of the typical teacher network are not replaced in this new model, but rather are complimented by myriad of tools that support a bi-directional exchange of information and ideas.

What’s

Twitter?


What s twitter

What’s Twitter?

  • One of the most-misunderstood and quickly dismissed of the social networking tools available

  • I relate to it as a “perpetual chat session”

  • You choose who you want to “follow” and others follow you

  • What you type is seen by all your followers. You see everything typed by the people you follow

  • Restricted to 140 characters, Twitter is no place for the verbose

What’s Twitter?

  • After signing up for Twitter, first thing to do is to find people to follow – find twenty to start off

  • Make sure you include people you actually know – this is one medium for your Personal Learning Network (PLN)

  • You will start to see what they say. You can reply to them.

  • As you contribute, people will start to follow you, adding YOU to THEIR PLN

  • Give Twitter a chance before deciding to dismiss it


Social bookmarking and your pln

Social Bookmarking and your PLN

If you are still saving your Bookmarks or

Favourites within your browser, you are wastingthem. If you are relying on finding the sitesyou need yourself, then you are wasting time.

Sign up to one or more ofthese Social Bookmarking sites and start tagging the sites you find.

Find other users tagging the sites you are interested in and setup an RSS reader to their account. Others can then work for you!


How to get information to find you

How to Get Information to Find You

In a world of information overload, you need

find you.

Google Alerts will email you links whenever something new appears on the internet thatmatches your particular search requests


Putting your pln all together

Putting your PLN all Together

  • Once you’ve made your accounts and found some like-minded people for your PLN, you need a single easy place to get access to it all
