The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

I pulled up the note on my iPod the other day, the one that I wrote last December to chart all my New Year's Resolutions.  I'm doing pretty well.  I've been financially responsible.  I'm 6 lbs from my Jan 1 '11 goal weight. I've sent birthday cards and gift cards to every family member so far this year.

But then there's the one about the reading...

I was supposed to read 4 professional books. I haven't read one.  And here it is September.

So please help me find some sense of accomplishment in my resolution--if I only read one professional book this year, what should it be?  (I teach Spanish primarily to high schoolers.)

Thanks PLN--

Learning Management System

My school system will soon discuss which learning management system would be best to use with our students. I say, "Why choose one?" Web/cloud based system rarely require 3rd party assistance, i.e., system IT people.  The more experience students get with using a variety of LMS, the better. Suggestions?See More
