The personal learning network for educators
A couple of years ago, I was lucky enough to have a class taught by both Will Richardson and Alan November. Alan was great at the theory and "big picture" stuff, but Will, a teacher still in the classroom, was an invaluable resource. We really got a chance to pick his brain on all of the practical stuff that's hard to pick up from "how-to" material.
Having said that, Will's book is a wealth of practical information and well worth reading. He also has a new book coming out soon called Personal Learning Networks, which I plan to buy as soon as it becomes available.
