Educators need to create a Personal Learning Network, but our students need an authentic audience too. How do you do this? By introducing new concepts and activities to your students using creative measures, such as Social Media. Social Media tools are changing how people, including our students, interact with the world. This makes way for changes in the strategies and tools we use for teaching and learning. Follow us on this journey as we explore ways we can truly transform learning for our students, and at the same time transform how we teach!

 

An important part of learning is to build your own personal learning network -- a group of people who can guide your learning, point you to learning opportunities, answer your questions, and give you the benefit of their own knowledge and experience.    Daniel R. Tobin
