The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

Hi Everyone!

I am always looking for more PLN links! I started a site @ http://www.vrml.k12.la.us/curriculum/tech/socialnetwork/PLN.htm last month and would love to continue adding to it.

Barbara Sakamoto's "What is a PLN Anyway?" blog post is great for anyone new to any educational PLN. Her link is located @ http://viigo.im/0QxX.. You may want to check that out if you haven't read it yet.

If you have any informative PLN links to share, I would love to add those! Just send them my way!

Thanks!
Stacy

I expect it can be helpful.
There are a few I didn't have yet! Thanks so much for the feedback!
Well, it seems that the link in indication number 5 is not working anymore, so here is an optional link. It's not like the first one - because it was really great - but is an option.

5a) What is a PLN? Or, PLE vs. PLN? http://educationaltechnology.ca/couros/1156

5b) What Does the Network Mean to You? http://educationaltechnology.ca/couros/799

8) Supporting Personal Learning Environments at Work http://michelemartin.typepad.com/thebambooprojectblog/2007/08/suppo...
With the state conference and holidays in December, I have been a little busy. I do hope to update my links soon by adding the GREAT resources you have all offered! Thanks a million to all of you!

Wishing everyone the best 2010 they could wish for!

Updated PLN Page
Not sure if you can use this or not, but I recently put together a short video for my teachers, introducing them to the concept of a PLN, and what's in it for them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDxK0OSvKEU
This is a really great video! Thank you for your contribution. PLN couldn't be presented in a better way.
Thank you!

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More

"My preference is this website is best. Twitter is used for social purpose and EDUPLN is used for professional discussion which you cannot discuss on social platforms."
