My name is Lesley Reilly and I work for a non-profit company based in Newton, MA on a project called EdTech Leaders Online (http://www.edtechleaders.org/
) (ETLO). We train educators, administrators, and other school professionals how to design and deliver online content for students and also for professional development.
I am trying to find a connected educator who would be willing to share an hour of your time to share your knowledge about personal learning networks with the education world. Every participant who graduates from any of the ETLO training courses are then enrolled in the ETLO Forum, an online community facilitated by ETLO staff and designed to provide ongoing support for ETLO participants as they design and facilitate online workshops and courses. Through the forum, we also host several Webinars throughout the year on relevant topics to our participants. The webinars are held in Elluminate and last no more than one hour. More and more people I think are aware of the concept of personal learning networks but I think many people do not know how to take advantage of web-based tools to grow and nurture their networks. The format and content is really up to you. We have also yet to pick a date but probably something in February or March would be great!
What's in it for you? Fame and fortune! (Or just more people to network with and more followers to your blogs and sites!) Please let me know if you are interested! Co-presenting is certainly welcome as well! You can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
