The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

I created a global blogging project this summer called Globablog.  It is an absolutely free project that revolves around middle school students using blogging as a means to connect globally and includes great tutorials and explanations every step of the way. 

Here is a blurb from the website,

"At the heart, a global learning project connects 2 classrooms from different countries and cultures in one collaborative learning experience.  In Globablog, middle school classes from around the world are encouraged to join in through blogging.  Students will write individual blog posts about the same topics ultimately describing their own unique perspectives.  From there, students will connect on a global level with other participating students by commenting and having conversations about their work.  In the end, students will work together to solve a problem in a collaborative online environment.  What is global learning? Check out and see for yourself!"


There is still time to join the project!  If you would like your class to participate, it is okay if you don't follow the calendar exactly.  Please message me if you are interested or have any questions!

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More

Shawn Mitchell replied to Rob Schoonveld's discussion Twitter vs Edupln
"My preference is this website is best. Twitter is used for social purpose and EDUPLN is used for professional discussion which you cannot discuss on social platforms."
