The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

Hi Everyone!

I am always looking for more PLN links! I started a site @ http://www.vrml.k12.la.us/curriculum/tech/socialnetwork/PLN.htm last month and would love to continue adding to it.

Barbara Sakamoto's "What is a PLN Anyway?" blog post is great for anyone new to any educational PLN. Her link is located @ http://viigo.im/0QxX.. You may want to check that out if you haven't read it yet.

If you have any informative PLN links to share, I would love to add those! Just send them my way!

Thanks!
Stacy

I expect it can be helpful.
There are a few I didn't have yet! Thanks so much for the feedback!
Well, it seems that the link in indication number 5 is not working anymore, so here is an optional link. It's not like the first one - because it was really great - but is an option.

Wishing everyone the best 2010 they could wish for!

Updated PLN Page
Not sure if you can use this or not, but I recently put together a short video for my teachers, introducing them to the concept of a PLN, and what's in it for them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDxK0OSvKEU
This is a really great video! Thank you for your contribution. PLN couldn't be presented in a better way.
Thank you!
