Hi everyone! I am studying elementary education at UMW in the M.Ed program. I am in the process of expanding my PLN, and I was wondering if you have any tips for getting the most out of this website? Any places to check for regular updates?

Thanks!

Hey there! I'm currently studying elementary education, and I am super excited to begin expanding my personal learning network with all of you!

Hello! 

I am also an M.Ed student at the University of Mary Washington my endorsement is in Spanish. I cannot wait to integrate technology into my lessons. Also, I believe collaboration between colleagues is important. 

I am looking forwarding to learning and networking with all of you!

Welcome H. Brooke Melville! There are a lot of great educators networking through this site and I know you'll find a lot of support :) Are you on Twitter?

I'm an M.Ed. student at the University of Mary Washington.  I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed by the number of great technology resources available, and was hoping to find others in the same position.

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to see if this group is up & running!

I am a doctoral student in Ed. Tech, working on my proposal.

Really interested in online collaboration & online teacher certification.

Anyone out there getting certified via online program & using a PLE??

Hi!  I'm studying elementary education at Michigan State University with a specialization in Urban Education and Language Arts.  I'll be student teaching in Detroit this year and can't wait!  I love learning by talking to other people, which is why I'm here!

Hi! I'm studying secondary education at the University of Northern British Columbia, in Prince George, BC, Canada. My area of focus is in Social Studies (BA History from University of Lethbridge). The use of tech in educational development hasn't been covered in my program yet (that course starts in Sept) so I'm just feeling my way for now.

Methods: Tradition vs. Relevance

This morning I read a post from a higher education educator about the negative effects of Tech in lectures. The author was perplexed when he realized a great many students in his lecture hall were paying attention to Facebook, or attending to email during the course of a two-hour lecture. His school chose to ban tech devices from the lecture hall. Additionally, students were required to use nametags, so that the lecturer could address individual students with questions during the lecture. This…See More
