The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

I feel pretty up to date on lots of web 2.0 tools and use them regularly in my classroom. However, I'm totally new to Twitter (ID = paulsonb), finally joining about a week ago. I feel so behind! I found this Ning and have found lots of smart people to follow, but I'm struggling to add many followers. What should I be doing that I'm not? I just started a blog but same story, not sure how to put myself out there and start sharing in both directions. I feel like such a voyeur right now, help!

Thanks in advance :)

I am just slightly ahead of you in technology so I may have some useful insight.
1) Stay organized with your time 2) Make sure you have a backup plan if the twitter/blog/computer goes down for a while 3) It is better to learn one thing well than a thousand things badly (so concentrate on one tool at a time) 4)If you get a chance get a smart phone - I have a backflip and can check all of my emails and twitters in an instant (great tool). 5) When you learn something write it down in a place where others have access to it - no matter how mundane it is - someone is struggling with the same issue.
Hope this helps

Integration with The Latest Technology in Education Field

It is with certainty that we can say that the future of education is looking very bright. Today the kids are taught so many new innovations that we adults couldn't have imagined learning at school.
