Please join us at Margaret Simon's blog Reflections on the Teche on Sundays.
We post about digital literacy!
What is a PLN? According to Jordan Catapano on Teachhub.com, "What it means is that an individual has developed their own personalized 'network' of fellow educators and resources who are designed to make them a better teacher. This network exists...online through their social media connections."
Through social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, Blogging, Pinterest...I've met so many amazing teachers who share my philosophy and passion for teaching. Here are my top ten reasons why I can't live without my PLN...
- We share ideas
- Inspired by ideas and experiences of others
- Seeing outside the walls of my classroom
- Creative problem solving
- Learning new things
- Book recommendations
- Writing feedback
- They make me a better teacher
- I share in a world wide community of teaching
I urge you to join in...use social media for your own professional development. Join a twitter chat, or write a blog about teaching...post ideas on pinterest, or link to important teaching ideas on facebook!
Links to all of my social media contacts are above, I hope you follow or friend me...
For those of you already part of a PLN...please join me and share your experiences in the comments!
