The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

Creativeness, strength, purpose and meaningfulness exude from the learners sitting in my room, fill the entire space, inspire and motivate me, the mentor, and therefore, dictate my interaction with my scholars.

Many of my colleagues and I strongly believe that it is a privilege and an honor to face day after day our future, the best of the best, tomorrow’s political and social leaders.

Thank to Facebook and Twitter, I know for a fact and I have witnessed countless times that our mission as educators has borne fruits. I enjoy seeing many of my former learners heading the fields of education, medicine, engineering, finance and economics, journalism, arts, sports, etc.

I am extremely proud of my present and former students and my calling.

Methods: Tradition vs. Relevance

This morning I read a post from a higher education educator about the negative effects of Tech in lectures. The author was perplexed when he realized a great many students in his lecture hall were paying attention to Facebook, or attending to email during the course of a two-hour lecture. His school chose to ban tech devices from the lecture hall. Additionally, students were required to use nametags, so that the lecturer could address individual students with questions during the lecture. This…See More
