Any other outstanding educators in Iowa going to TICL 2013? I will not only be going but I am thrilled to be presenting with some fellow colleagues on the importance of PLNs and how they can truly create some stellar PD for you, on your own time…here’s a little snip of what we will be sharing as a team:
“Professional development should be personal development. Professional Learning Networks allow you to customize your professional development and connect with educators not just around the country, but the world. This session will cover the why’s and how’s of creating an effective professional learning network. Come and see how Twitter, blogs, Pinterest, wikis, Ning and an extensive list of other great tools can help you tailor your professional development to be ridiculously relevant and completely convenient. Get connected with educators around the world who have set the groundwork for you. Experience the power of communication and contribute your own professional opinion with experts in your field. Become the link between your classroom and the world – do PD in your PJs.“
I’m excited to bring my knowledge of blogging, tweeting, and connecting online to a big table full of educators who are no doubt as passionate, if not more passionate, about technology and 21st century thinking as I am.
Will is see you there?
