A Year Later And Are We Using Different Tools To Connect To Our PLNs?

One year ago I asked my network to complete a survey on Personal Learning Network. The survey was used in a series of presentations and to build my PLN Yourself website. Being a year later I’m wondering how much has changes?  Are we using different tools to connect?  Are the tools we would recommend to new people different? Can you help in the following ways: Can you please complete my new Personal Learning Networks Survey? There are only 2 questions…

Twitter (and Humans) Don’t Always Get It Correct!

Credit where credit is due is important. Yes the “Twitter Handbook for Teachers” is an excellent resource.

Twitter and Building Your Personal Learning Network

Twitter and Building Your Personal Learning Network

It’s well known that I’m a self confessed Twitteraholic and twitter is an important part of my personal learning network. I’ve even written a Quick Start Tips for New Twitters.

Twitter is currently ranking the highest from 128 response in my Personal Learning Networks survey question “Which five (5) tools would you recommend as a starting point to…
