The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

ISTE 2012 is coming up in mid June. The newest, best thing about attending Education Conferences is the number of connected educators who attend. Attendees get to meet face to face with people they have had a connected relationship with before ever meeting in real life. I would like to use this discussion place to connect with people before the conference even opens. It would be great to let us know if you are attending and how to best follow you. Twitter is my connection method of choice. Follow me at @tomwhitby on Twitter. I will be tweeting details of the event as the conference unfolds. If you are not attending the conference in person, following those who are, is a great way to get a feel for the conference. This is all part of being connected educators. So, to sum up: will you be attending #ISTE12, and what is your Twitter handle? Feel free to add any other comments as well.

Hi Tom,

I will be working in the newbie lounge and will look for you. I am @lparisi On twitter. I can also often be found in the Blogger's Cafe. Stop in and say hello to everyone, whether you know them or not. It's a very friendly place to connect.

I will be there! My user name on Twitter is @kathycook1. I am looking forward to the conference and networking with other educators. See you there!

A group from my school will be there for the first time. My twitter handle is @schultzwjhs. With me will be @azjd, @tim4nd, @suez1619, @dialkt, and @mrbartleyaz

I'll be attending for the first time since San Antonio 2008 I believe. Definitely the best part is getting to meet those who we've gotten to know only virtually. Last time I remember it was a question of do you hug or shake hands with someone you've never met but gotten to know so well? I keep thinking I need to change my twitter avatar as my hair has gotten a lot grayer since the picture was taken. Oh well, it's more about connecting and removing the barriers of having to use technology to share and discuss then it is about whether an avatar matches one's appearance :) I'm really looking forward to meeting you Tom as well as the rest of the #edchat group. My twitter name is @derrallg and I'm also looking forward to meeting others in the Educator's PLN to hear about inspiring experiences which elevated and transformed the learning happening in the classroom.

I am considering going to ISTE, but I haven't even had a chance to look at the kinds of speakers/ panels that will be available.  I just started blogging this year (mypaperlessclassroom.org), and I really want to realize the awesome potential of PLN's

@LearningsLiving

I'll be at ISTE with a few other Vermonters traveling clear across the country for this great event. My Twitter handle is @dsmacdonald. When not in a session, you may find me helping out in the Newbie Lounge or in the SIGMS "Playground."

What’s the Goal of Education?

April 25, 2019 by Tom Whitby @tomwhitbyAs adults we generally learn about things that we need to learn about. Of course we also have an opportunity to learn about things we would like to learn about. We do not have anyone assigning us projects, or books or exams for which to prepare. The exception to that would be the job requirements in a job that we have chosen. Theoretically, we work in a job that…See More
