September 17 Live Session
Worlds2See, Personal Learning Environments Networks and Knowledge
Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the live session today since I have been scheduled to work.  I still plan on posting a reflection after I have had the chance to listen to the recording. If you would like to chat (or e-mail or something else) briefly about the session over the weekend would you please let me know? I am still trying to find ways to stay connected to other course participants . :) #PLENK2010 [Link] 2010-09-17T13:25:00

Comments
Worlds2See, Personal Learning Environments Networks and Knowledge
Hello out there... It turns out I didn't know the commenting feature on this blog was locked down like Fort Knox.  I apologize if you wanted to comment on something but didn't have the secret special handshake. I believe everyone out there in my PLN world should now be able to comment easily and even anonymously if you so choose.  I always intended this blog to be an open forum of communication and thankfully I had a lovely e-mail letting me know that I might want to ...

Steps I have Taken to Create my PLN
Worlds2See, Personal Learning Environments, Networks and Knowledge
Enrolled in the Personal Learning Environments Networks and Knowledge course.Created my profile on the course Moodle (the course management system aka learning management system, or virtual learning environment) so that participants in the course can learn about and contact me.Updated my Google Reader (an RSS feed reader) to include many of the top education websites and blogs as well as some of the blogs from other participants in the course.  (Many of these can be found ...

7 things you should know about...Personal Learning Environments Reflection
Worlds2See, Personal Learning Environments, Networks and Knowledge
This is the very first article I have read for my course.  7 things you should know about...Personal Learning Environments.  In this article the author states: PLEs represent a shift away from the model in which students consume information through independent channels such as the library, a textbook, or an LMS, moving instead to a model where students draw connections from a growing matrix of resources that they select and organize.Before our students are able form connections ...

September 15 Live Session Reflection
Worlds2See, Personal Learning Environments, Networks and Knowledge
This blog post is my attempt at summarizing and internalizing today's live session. 1.  The difference between PLE and PLN is a matter of semantics.  Trying to create a clear differentiation between the two will not assist us in any meaningful way.  The term PLN is intrinsically contradictory.  The idea of having a "personal" network declares ownership.  The only reason that the network becomes personal is that the individual is a small ...

Personal Learning Networks for Educators
Worlds2See, Personal Learning Environments, Networks and Knowledge
This video provided me with a very clear visual representation of a PLN.  I also connected deeply with the idea that professional development is the responsibility of the individual.  As a license elementary school teacher I am not willing to depend on a school (or school district) to determine (or fund) my personal development.  Instead I will look to create my own PLN with the resources I need to become the best educator I can be.  #PLENK2010 [Link] 2010-09-14T01:26:00

It all started with a post
Worlds2See, Personal Learning Environments, Networks and Knowledge
This morning as I was skimming my RSS feeds on Google Reader a post titled "Are Our Kids Ready for This?" jumped out at me.  After watching the short video I decided to join the course without having any solid idea of what it actually was.  Before this morning I had never even heard of a MOOC. And so it begins... Now I am creating a blog for the very fist time as a way to interact with this online course. Yes I really am 26. Seriously, I have never tried to start a blog.  I ...
