The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

Information

Edtech

A group where educators can learn and identify which Educational Technology tools are appropriate for them. I'm hoping to simplify this process for educators and am open to any feedback (organization, specific sites, beta vs ready, etc etc.)

I recently posted this article on my blog regarding the creation of a personal learning network. Would be interested in hearing others experiences in this regard.

A former student has collaborated with a Harvard physics professor to create a well designed formative assessment tool for use in the classroom.  There is a fee (per student), but this is a highly versatile tool that is well worth the expense.  www.learningcatalytics.com

Hey Dan,

If you create a google docs survey (i.e., http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7tH_I4DHVww) or something that I can embed into a wiki, I can host your survey on my tech tools website (http://edutechdatabase.wikispaces.com). I'm a Ph.D. Student in Education interested in technology use in the classroom so I'd love to learn more about what you find and let me know if I can help in any way.

Looking to create a survey on the use of technology in my classroom. I am looking for a good free site to host the survey and looking for potential questions that I can ask my students on said survey. I realize that there is a lot of statistical analysis of the use of technology in classrooms and while I find it relevant and interesting to read about I am really interested in getting a handle specifically on where my students are at. Any links to any resources, as I am starting from scratch would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to message or inbox me on this site.  Thanks in advance for your help.

Jamie,

These are great.  I hope your staff appreciates them!

I make weekly-ish newsletterpublications to send to the faculty.  They contatin information about technology, best practices, and differentiated instruction.  You might find some of the information useful.  http://livebinders.com/play/present?id=182688
