Develop Your Personal Learning Network (LC)
Thu, February 20 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Many educators use Twitter to create a Personal Learning Network (PLN) to connect with other teachers. Educators with a robust, online PLN tap into support and resources on a scale that is not possible in traditional, face-to-face professional development opportunities. At the same, teachers with an online-based PLN learn skills for using the network that they share with their students, enabling them to take ownership of their own life-long learning process. Learn best practices and strategies for developing your own PLN on Twitter in this interactive session.
Please sign up for a Twitter account before the techshop if you do not already have one.
Stick around after the session if you’d like some hands-on experience developing your PLN.
