The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

I am trying something new this semester with my graduate students in the course, Introduction to Education Technology. In the past, I have introduced them to Skype and even set up some educators to Skype into our classroom. But this semester, I would like to make this more of an active experience for each of my students by connecting each of them with an educator on Skype so that they can experience a virtual, synchronous conversation with this technology. They have no PLN established and have no way to find their own connections, so I have set up a Google spreadsheet with some information and a place for educators to volunteer to connect with one of my students. If this is something that is of interest to you, you can read more about it and add your own information by visiting the spreadsheet here.

Also, feel free to pass this information along in whatever channels that you use.

Thanks so much!
Steve

UPDATE: This project is now underway. However, I will most likely repeat it in the fall semester, so if you would like to help out, you can still add to the list. Just be aware that you won't hear from any students until the fall semester of 2010. Thanks!

I am interested in assisting your students with this process. I have recently established webcams in three classrooms to begin the process with a student traveling to Chile. We plan to utilize it to continue the student's learning while taking time to visit her extended family. Please feel free to contact me. I have filled out your Google Docs spreadsheet and look forward to the conversation.
