My Personal Learning Network
At the beginning of the semester back in January, there wasn't much to my personal learning network(PLN). EDM310 has helped my PLN grow substantially. Once I started leaving comments for teachers, it opened my eyes to how much useful information and advice that is out there to be shared by other educators. I have all of my teachers’ links saved that I commented on so I can go back and check whats’s new. I have subscribed to a few educators from recent EDM blog post assignments, such as Paul Anderson. Another tool I added to my PLN is twitter. I had never been on twitter before this class, but I now have an account and follow educators, mainly educators at USA. I have not only added my educators to my PLN, but also the friends I have made in EDM310 that have helped me so much along the way. Edutopia is another useful resource that is a part of my PLN. I will continue adding resources to my PLN to help me on my path as a successful teacher. I have already received useful advice from branching out with other educators and future educators. I hope to show my students the steps to building their own PLN. I hope to use the collaboration portion of it as a method of teaching. EDM310 has showed me how to start my PLN and I have much more insight on certain topics. I hope to use this tool to ultimately enhance my learning experiences.
