Develop Your Personal Learning Network (LC)

Thu, February 20 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Logo TechShops for Grad StudentsMany 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.

picture of Kristen TregliaAbout the speaker, Kristen Treglia:
Since 2008, Kristen has given Fordham faculty engaging support, advice and training based on her deep understanding of digital pedagogical methods and their potential to improve learning outcomes. A strong belief in collaboration and sharing resources has led Kristen to develop wide-ranging resources focused on teaching best practices that use technology-based educational methods and materials, including over 100 online slide decks that have garnered more than a half a million views.

Kristen’s broad experience helps faculty develop interactive lessons and activities both in the face-to-face format, as well as online. She is an experienced Blackboard administrator and is part of the distance learning team that designs and creates online courses at Fordham. Kristen is also well-versed in filmmaking including producing, directing, filming and editing video. She draws from this extensive experience to help faculty to create flipped classes.

Kristen is the author of The EdTech Bible, a multi-media ebook which shares her expertise with those new to the classroom, as well as experienced teachers looking for new ideas. The EdTech Bible is available on Amazon and iBooks. Kristen’s website contains a variety of resources she has created or curated.

Prior to working at Fordham, Kristen taught high school math for ten years. She also holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas at Austin.
