Personal Learning Network Ideas

Many educators are using social media to develop their own Personal Learning Network (PLN) to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and topics affecting their classrooms.
imageIf you haven’t started this practice yet, or if you’re looking to expand your PLN, here’s a great place to start. In June 2012, EdTech Magazine published a list of “50 Must-Read K-12 I.T. Blogs.”
While many on the list are tech-focused, you’ll find that most are traditionally-trained teachers who happen to use tech to communicate good classroom practices to the world outside their classrooms. Given a chance, I think most teachers will find something on the list that will appeal to them personally or professionally, regardless of your tech-comfort level.
Among these are several that I peruse during that rumored-and-always-elusive “free time.”
I am amazed that the following were not included – you may find them useful too!
Many of these can also be found on various social networks, too, like Twitter, Facebook, Google+, etc.
